Interestng & Unique
7 July 2016 | by Sarah Louise HalleSee all my reviews

This film takes a well known story of Dr Frankenstein and adds a different spin on the ideas of death.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and was one of the first anime films i watched outside the Studio Ghibli collection. The idea of bringing corpses back from the dead as working puppets, is a very dark matter and i believe this film manages to convey its story.

However it may of helped me relate to the characters and have a better understanding towards their motives, if more background was given into their lives.

Enjoyed so much have ordered myself the steel-book blu ray version to enjoy :)
