Pretty good.
18 March 2019 | by invisibleunicornninjaSee all my reviews

Before I get into what I thought of the show, I'd like to let fans of the show know that this is a prequel to the show. For the most part it has nothing to do with the show itself, except that this is about how the world of games was created.

On its own though, I'd say that this movie is pretty good. The beginning is a bit messy, but once it gets everything sorted out, the overall story is good. The animation is pretty great, along with the voice acting and characters. This movie as a whole isn't great, but it has a lot of redeeming qualities and I would recommend it.
