Visually interesting; defies common sense by MBreslau November 16, 2012 - 5:46 AM PST
Gorgeous CGI with colors over saturated. Everything looks like it was made of jell-o except the foreground characters, who look like cel animation.

The protagonist spends half his onscreen minutes in mortal terror, screaming in fright, in near-fatal situations, yet never even bruises or scratches. When he finally dies it is voluntary and not permanent... Some of this movies is reminiscent of Snow WHite, some is like NIght on Bald Mountain, but most of it is unique.

Like most anime, you can't tell who is the good guy and who is the bad guy - they all take both roles at different times.

Enjoy the film if you like this kind of thing. It's different and interesting, just not great.
