I have to agree with the previous poster, this movie has very interesting visuals. I like how there is a character progression as you see different beasts evolve. But, I think the story could've been better. The animation is very well done, but the story could've been a lot better. The ending was also disappointing because it was almost an anti-climax, which I think was a big disappointment. Also, the cgi (and that is a big compliment to cgi animation) is really good. However, if you are looking for a big movie that requires very little thought, this is a good movie to see. And if you have to be a kid, this is a good movie to see with your parents or younger brother or sister.

I have seen this movie a few times and it never gets old. The Japanese animation was by far the best thing about this film. And the battles are all great. This movie is the best that can be done for a kids movie and should be given great exposure. It's a good movie to watch with your kids and I think they will all like it.

I really enjoyed this film. It was cute, funny, and action-packed. The visuals are gorgeous, the characters are likeable, and it's pretty light-hearted. The film also has an interesting, somewhat complicated plot. It is sort of a "monsters vs humans" movie, but it's not really an issue, because it has some twists. The plot is still pretty simple, but the characters are very likable and entertaining. I also really liked how the villains and heroes interact, but I won't give anything away. I have not seen the other movies, but I think this film is a must-see, especially if you are a die-hard G1-fan.

My review for this film might be very biased and biased but, if you are a fan of the video games of the anime or even just a fan of animation, this is a good film to watch. It is still a very good anime film in my opinion. First of all, the characters are very well drawn. The characters are very good and the animation is very good. The animation is very unique, to say the least. There are many types of animation here, which makes the film unique. There are also the voice actors who voice all the characters. One of the things that I liked about this film is that the characters are very likable and the characters are very real. The story in this film is more like a summary than a story. There is a good reason why a world would do what they did. It is also very cool that there are many different settings. Also the idea of a world that is like an animated cartoon is cool. In the movie, the plot has a lot of twists and turns. I liked how it was all different but still fun. This film is a very good anime film. It is a very good film for a lot of fans of the anime. This is a very good film for fans of the anime or just fans of the animation. 8/10

I was really excited when I heard that this movie would be coming out. I knew that it was a high-budget Japanese movie but I never expected it to be so good. I thought it would be a little cheesy and dull, but it was actually very entertaining. The plot is a little confusing, but it was a good way to start the movie. The animation is pretty good and the voice acting is excellent. I really like the voice acting of both Hiro and Chihiro. Hiro is a character that has a lot of charisma and he is very funny. The voice of Chihiro is a little annoying at times, but it is a good thing because it helps the characters develop a little more. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie. It has a lot of humor and it is very entertaining. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a good Japanese animated movie.

A younger audience will find this film very interesting, but not for kids.

If you've been around the Internet for a while, you've seen that a lot of reviews have compared this movie to other films. There are many similar movies, but none of them are nearly as good. My favorite is FLCL (see below). This movie was like FLCL, but more epic. The CG in this movie was fantastic. The CG was so fluid and powerful. The animation in this movie was very similar to the animated Dragon Ball series. The characters were awesome. I also like the fact that this movie was about monsters, not just humans. I liked how the movie depicted a future without the usual humans. This movie was very original. Some people say that this movie is horrible. I think that they're just jealous. If you liked this movie, you'll like this one. I think you'll be a little jealous.

Every time I watch a great film, it just leaves me with an empty feeling. I just want to watch a movie over and over again, like something that you would go and watch over and over again with your friends. I had a couple of the 2nd movie as well, which was really great. I got the film over here in the states and I really enjoyed it. It has it's great moments and the dubbing is pretty good. But for me, this is a great film. Like the great films of Japan, the film of the series is done with incredible detail. I also like the animation of the film. The way they showed it, the how they animated it was really amazing. The only thing that I didn't like about it was the story line. They just seemed to go on and on and on and on about other parts of the film, and then there was no point in going on about it. So they just showed a bunch of random stories about the film, then the movies ended, and then another movie started. It just didn't flow well, which I like. But I still give it a 8 out of 10. It is the best film of the series, and the best animated film. I recommend this to any fans of the film.

As I said in the title, this movie is not the best movie ever, but it is a good movie. I have never been a fan of the anime, but I have heard many people saying that this movie is the best of the series, so I had to see it. And I think it is good. I do not know much about the story of the anime, but I thought that it was very good. The animation is very good, and the story is very good. I think that it is the best of the series. It is a good movie, and I think that it is worth watching. I give this movie a 7/10.

I was very interested in watching this movie. It is the first one to show the "human" side of the Digimon characters. The other movies showed the Digimon as machines (like D-3:Aryllacus), and not as real, living, feeling beings, as well as this one. I am a big fan of the franchise, and this movie definitely surprised me. As I saw the movie, I could see that the director was also one of the movie-makers. He has a very good, easy to follow style in his movies, that is not something I normally see. The plot, acting, and character development are all good, and he also uses a lot of very good images from the comics. This movie is definitely a definite must-see for Digimon fans. The animation is just incredible. This is one of the best animation I have ever seen. There is a lot of story-telling and animation, so I think this movie will appeal to fans of the Digimon universe. Overall, a very good movie, and I am sure you will enjoy it.

This movie is a very beautiful and simple movie. The special effects are so realistic, and this animation is very colorful and full of story. It has everything you want from a movie, and I know I've heard some people complain about the English dub, but honestly, there's nothing wrong with the English dub. It was very natural, and not too distracting, and when I heard it was the Japanese dub, I was happy it was the Japanese dub. Overall, this is a movie that is really enjoyable to watch, and you will want to watch it again and again, it's a very rewarding movie.

This is one of those films that get better with time. The original is definitely the best of the series, but this is better in every way. It has fantastic animation, and is a great story. I don't know if they changed the story enough for people to not mind, but it was still entertaining. I don't think this is something to be put off for its short length, and there's a decent amount of comedy in it. It's worth seeing at least once. 8.5/10

The Story of the war between the human civilization and the insect's civilization was changed for this film. All the characters are played by Japanese celebrities. It was the first film with a song by Naoko Shimada. Most of the famous characters, the great great Great Ancestor (Shigeru's father), the Masamune (the armor), the Amaterasu (the Tamer) and the six wielders (Sugawara, the personification of the love for the four elements). The action of this film is taken place in New York. The leading character, Shigeru, plays a normal teenager who is under the leadership of an adult who helps him with the monochrome monster. His father never sent him to school, and he feels like a child of the apocalypse. When the monster (along with a few other monsters) arrives in New York, Shigeru decides to join the Masamune. When he arrives in Japan, he wants to join the Masamune. But when the Masamune is told to do something, he must. But before he can join the Masamune, he meets his human "aunt" and is taken to the Masamune. The first time he appears in the movie, it was to the point where you could not recognize him. In the end, he wants to get back the Masamune for his own. One of the monsters (a fire spirit) is killed by a young girl and Shigeru comes to meet the "aunt". In the end, the Japanese military destroys the Masamune and the Masamune seems to get back his powers, and his true identity is revealed to Shigeru. However, a special monster is the true representative of the good. There are many scenes like this one, that make this film the classic anime of the 1980s. These scenes were done so well, that they made it the favorite film of the generation. It is also the beginning of the iconic "R.O.T.T." (the anime "The Legend of the Golden Witch" and the movie "Dragonball") The characters are quite well, and some of the characters have evolved over time. The human culture, the army, the politics and the war between the insect civilization and human civilization. The biggest difference is that it is a fantasy film, which was extremely successful in Japan. The fans of the story, like myself, are becoming rather old. But even though this movie has become more popular, it still is not my favorite. I would rank it just above "Kuroko's Basketball" in my collection. I love the fact that the story of "Monster and the police" is also the story of "Monster and the warriors" and "Monster and the children". The movie, for me, is much better. Also, the movie has become a love story. The fighting scenes in this film are great and always look great. The music is also great. The background music in this movie is the best. The theme of the film is the "happiness of the human" and "happiness of the insects". I think it is a good message to tell the audience, which is to enjoy life, to be happy. It is great that the world is having a great time. When a human civilization is the most prominent in the world, it is very important to be happy.

At first I was put off by the movie. I've never really liked the animated series. And while I still dislike the series I thought this movie was an improvement. Sure, there were some plot holes, but in the end I was hooked. Now that I've watched the movie I can see it for what it was. But, what the heck is this? Is this supposed to be a kids' film? Why do some of the characters, such as the Garurumon, have strange, or more precisely, totally contrived accents? This really annoyed me. I also noticed that the film is edited backwards. It's like they edited the first movie and then didn't change the second part. This kind of keeps you off balance. The movie's story is of a people from the other side of the universe who are currently on Earth. Their world is having a great deal of problems. They're not happy about it, they know that they need to change their world, but they're afraid that if they do it the consequences will be too drastic. So they have a plan to get their planet back on its feet. They want the inhabitants of the world they're from to move out and live in the country where their world is located. The problem is that most of the inhabitants of this world, that's why the Garurumon are named after them, do not want to move out and live in a country that's only half like their world. So they propose that the Garurumon help the humans live a peaceful life in the land they've chosen for their world. The plan works, but the movie doesn't have the right level of fun that the animated series had. It has its flaws, but it's still a good movie, especially since the movie doesn't have the dark, and cynical tones of the series. The movie's not the greatest anime I've ever seen, but it's still a good one. The animation is pretty good, and it has quite a lot of neat designs. The characters are a little cliched but it works out in the end. I like how the movie doesn't have any in-your-face humor. The movie doesn't have any glorified and childish moments, and it's a more mature movie than the cartoon series. The movie has a plot that doesn't rely on the characters' wisecracks, but it does rely on the other aspects of the story. The movie has a good amount of action and violence, and it's more of a kids' movie. It's a little different from the cartoons and movies, and I like that. I recommend the movie if you like the animated series, it's not a masterpiece but it's pretty good. The movie has some flaws but it's still a pretty good movie, especially if you like the series. There are some parts that I didn't like, but it's still a very good movie. 8/10.

I was quite surprised to see how much I enjoyed this movie. I thought it was awesome. It has great special effects and animation, and very much makes you feel like you are on a time travelling train with the titular creatures. I also liked the story and the characters were very well drawn and well developed. I also really enjoyed the humor. I think it's a very good choice to make the main characters older, but they still don't feel old. Even though the title character isn't that old, they still manage to make him feel like he is 30 or 40. I also liked the fact that most of the movie is in a more futuristic, dorky sort of style, and that gives a really nice, modern feel to the movie. The rest of the time is in a more whimsical, futuristic sort of way. If you can watch a movie with a lot of animation and an extremely different story, than this is one of the best choices for you. Overall, I think this is a great movie.

I just want to say that this is one of the best movies I have ever seen! First of all, I never played the video games, and I never will. But I am an anime fan and I watched all the TV series. It was very entertaining and I liked it a lot. I think that even if you are not an anime fan, you will enjoy this movie very much. If you have not watched it yet, I strongly suggest you watch it and you will love it. I don't want to tell you much about the movie but I just want to say that this is a great movie and it will never be forgotten. It has a great story and it is really funny, very cute, and I loved the way it ended. The ending was very nice. I know that some people will criticize this movie because it does not follow all the manga. But there are some things that are missing in the manga that is not in the movie and I think that they are good changes. Like the scene where the three demons are fighting the Deevils, the giant demon has a piece of tape with data about the monsters. That was good. Some people will not like this movie, but I think that it is a great movie and it is worth watching. The animation is really good and the voice actors are really good. The music is also really good and the voices fit very well with the characters. The story is great and the movie is really entertaining and I would say that it is one of the best animated movies I have ever seen.

As a "monster" movie, "Saikai" is both perfect and somewhat predictable. And it doesn't help that the plot lacks in most of the later battles. The characters are a combination of children and adult, in terms of voice, but they do express some maturity in their portrayal. The background art, animation and overall overall atmosphere, combined with the music, is what makes "Saikai" more than just a "monster movie". Some people may be disappointed, but for me, I really enjoyed it. I give "Saikai" an 8/10.

When a city is attacked by an evil force the students of the powerful Kamiyama academy are sent on a journey to find the missing demons in order to stop it. This was one of my favorite films of all time and of all my anime's. It's been a long time since i've watched it but i just remembered the scene where lukas steps out of his house and a small shot of his coat. I can't really explain my reaction to it but it is one of the most famous ones in anime. So i couldn't let it go! So i just wanted to add it on here. Best Anime to me.

This is one of those movies that you can watch over and over again and still get some enjoyment out of it. The characters are very well done and the animation is excellent. The plot is a bit thin but that's not a problem at all. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 10 was that there were some parts of the story that were a bit confusing and not really necessary. Overall, this movie is a great movie to watch and is worth the money. It is a must see for anyone who likes animation and movies like this.

I've been waiting for the release of "Saikai" for quite some time, and was very excited for it, mainly because the trailer looked so darn good! Well, let me tell you. It was awesome. I loved the visual style of the movie, and I loved the animation. The characters were all very well animated, and were very likable. While I must say the biggest disappointments are the characters themselves, some of them are extremely cliche. Not to mention the one character is a fraud, that doesn't even exist, and some of the other characters are not very well developed, but in my opinion, it is the visuals that make the movie great, so I can't give any negative criticism. It's also really fun to see the Gatchaman, Saikai, and Anima, and it's really good to see Gatchaman Mecha. I didn't like the character of the villain of the film though. I felt like it didn't have enough of a personality, and it just didn't give me a good enough reason to dislike him. Other than that, I think that the movie was great! *sigh*

I thought the movie was fun. The animation is excellent. The songs are better than the original. The characters are great. There is enough humor to keep the children amused. The plot is good. You have to watch it for the jokes. The plot doesn't keep you busy, but you are entertained. The animation is quite good. For the parents I would suggest having their children sit in the front of the theater when watching the movie.

The first time I saw "The Fire of a billion summers" it was a film that brought out so many emotions. The reaction to this film was even more intense. The story was engaging, and the animation was beautifully drawn. I have a soft spot for Japanese animation. This is one of my favorite animated films. Now let's get to the spoilers. If you're looking for a detailed explanation of what is going on in the story, this isn't the movie for you. As a general summary, Takuya meets a young girl, Chie, who believes that she is destined to lead a revolution that will change the world. Chie's younger sister, Nadia, and her friend, Tetsuo, are also dreaming of revolution. They find the key to achieving their dreams, and discover the truth behind their sister's long-forgotten desire to lead a revolution. This was a truly original story. It's a story about revolution, and it explores this theme from a different angle. The political and religious aspects are also drawn out beautifully. The story has a fair amount of character development. It is very well-paced, and the different sub-plots mix nicely into the main story. The animation is extremely well-done. The characters are so lifelike, and the animation is beautiful. It is beautifully colored, and the coloring contrasts well with the political themes. The color schemes in this film are very unique and beautiful. The colors are bright, vibrant, and even slightly blue. The voices are all very well-cast. The voices are perfect for each character, and it is definitely worth the price of admission to see the voices for the characters. The voice acting in this film is highly impressive. The voice actors are perfect for their roles. If I didn't have the DVD, I would probably have looked up the voice actors on IMDb. If you are a fan of this film, I highly recommend you see this film. It's a unique, exciting, and thought-provoking story. It is definitely a movie you should see. Rating: 8 out of 10.

This is a great film for kids, but adults will like it too. If you have a kid, you can put them to sleep, or keep them awake, but they will probably enjoy it. There are also some good references to other movies. My favorite is the "Buddies" line in the first film. I also like the part when he sees the "real world" and "fake world" together. I don't remember the name of the movie, but it was probably a great film, if you have a kid.

This is a fairly typical anime film. It has a lot of action, but not enough depth, and the characters are very shallow. The story is a bit cliche, but it is entertaining enough. The animation is not bad, and the characters are very colorful and well drawn. The ending is a bit of a letdown, but that's probably because it is so predictable. The voice acting is pretty good, with the exception of the heroine. She is the most over-the-top character in the film, and it is hard to take her seriously. She is very annoying. I also like the way the film is structured. The beginning is very confusing and hard to follow, but the rest of the film is more coherent and logical. It has some good action scenes, and the story is also interesting. This is one of the better animated films I have seen.

While this is not the best of the films, it is still a pretty good film. The animation is a lot better than the first movie. The characters are more developed and the story is more interesting. The movie is still a lot of fun and is definitely worth seeing. It is a lot better than the first movie and is definitely a good film to watch.

I don't know why people are hating on this movie. It's really not that bad. It has a lot of charm, some really funny scenes, a good story, and a great battle scene. The characters are not the greatest, but they are pretty good. The story is a little bit silly, but it's understandable. The animation is good. The sound effects are okay, but nothing that you would really notice. I give it a 7/10.

I had heard great things about this movie, it really was fantastic, I was a fan of the cartoon as a kid, this is just an excellent continuation of it. The animation is so much better in this movie than the cartoon, not to mention the characters are more developed and they look so much like the original cartoons. A great story, fantastic animation, great characters. All together it was a great movie and the best yet in a long time.

I don't know why I waited so long to see this. I finally watched it after reading so many bad reviews and so many people who hated it. I have to say, I was not disappointed at all. This is a very fun, colorful, funny, and fun movie. I enjoyed it very much and I recommend it to everyone. I know I will be seeing it again. I thought this movie was very similar to the original. The animation is very well done, the voice acting is great, and the characters are just as well done as the original. The only reason I rated it so low is because of the one-dimensional characters. I think the only character who really stood out was Slade, but I think he was just a bit underdeveloped. I liked the animation, the characters, and the story. I think anyone who likes the original should really watch this. It is a very fun movie that is very different from the original. I will be buying this when it comes out on DVD.
