Полный непонятный отбитый пиздец, который даже спустя пару лет я до сих пор не понял. Но прикольно


Not sure I got the message but it was so pretty.


Movie completely ignores the manga’s plot, 3D CG animation is terrible. But it’s still a fun watch I guess, just wanted better for the manga


Kind of intriguing but then completely loses the plot in the 3rd act, Also the CG looks……bad… really bad…..


This show was interesting. I’m still a little confused about the ending but I still think about it from time to time…


Another interesting plot twist


Pretty crazy movie ending was a mindfuck



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
