The Review!
Okay... now that I've seen this awesome anime and after reading the reviews thereof, I have to come to Gowcaizer's rescue. Yes, the subtitles have a few minor problems, I'll grant that... a few misspelled words... fine. But overall, the movie, from my view was VERY WELL done! I personally was absolutely dreading getting this, but now that I actually own it, I can say it is really a masterpiece.

I'm not really big into the 'fighting-game turned movie' phaze either... my god just see the Street Fighter live-action movie and I think you understand! But this in my mind was a pleasing switch to what I had expected. Now what I don't understand is this, what exactly was wrong with the menu, huh? Come on, it had the necessities... subtitle and language control... in my mind extra bells and whistles was NOT the point! From what I remember, this was an OAV!!! It wasn't a motion picture!

Now, it's time for me to stop ranting and get to my ratings. The fighting was, for its caliber, VERY well pulled off considering the alternative (I refer to the GOD-AWFUL fighting in Tekken: The Motion Picture). All in all I'd give that a B... the Animation was incredible and spell-binding... definitely an A-... the subtitles... eh, try a B- (Hey at least they tried!), the music was haunting and VERY intense... but then aren't all fighting anime? Anyway, that in my mind, I'd say that's an A... my overall rating? Definitely a B+.

Again, EVERYONE is entitled to their own opinion, but I absolutely loved this Anime and hope the others are to this caliber, if not more so. BTW, I'll be reading the other reviews of the other fighting movies, so if anyone has any insight for me, let me know.
