Oh, cool someone made thread for this movie. I was afraid there will be many people willing to discus it.
As far anime adaptations go – this one is probably the best one. It can be bit cheesy sometimes, but aside from that it's just well made and really fun to watch.
Too bad is tied to very old franchise almost no one remembers, so not as many people will see it. Hell, I watched Battle Angel over 10 years ago and forgot most of it.
Caeglathatur The supposedly professional critics and the press seem to not like this film very much. The audience seems to love it.
That's because this movie has very specific target audience and while it's great at doing what this audience wants it's exotic enough that critics won't even recognize it as something that some people might want.
