    Thank you GuySmiley for submitting this

    This is definitely an anime classic, for the time the animation was and still is phenomenal

    Was taking a break from reading on Japanese prints when I came across this. My god, Japan has such a rich history of visual art.

    Easily one of my top 5 movies. I-A-B has had a good selection recently.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion = best series ever.

    Best movie?

    Either this, or GITS.

    0_o @davymid: You got this at age 12?
    That explains a few things... :rolleyes:

    It`s quite good! Sure there`s `better` since Anime is very taste-specific, eh? But all-around it`s both entertaining and ground-breaking.

    @Dead_Mind: Don`t be a "subbing snob", lolz!

    Oedo 808 with the UK sound track is the first anime I enjoyed, shame it was only 3 episodes.

    I really like Howls moving castle and spirited away but as far as gritty messed up manga films go this is the best :)

    My brother told me he knew a good anime movie 3 days ago. And now it appears on IAB. What are the odds...
