One of the most beautiful animated movies ever made, a must-watch. Don’t need prior knowledge to appreciate it.
Classic Gothic action movie, been holding off on this one for awhile and it didn’t disappoint, visually pleasant.
Highly Atmospheric and Gorgeous looking movie. The characters and story are basic. But damn does it look and sound good.
A old-school vampire hunting story lots of over-the-top action definitely recommend
One of the most technically impressive and engaging Vampire Films I’ve seen in years with an all-star English Cast and great performances.
Great Action, Great Anime Character design, but the English dubbing is a little low and the soundtrack over powers the talking in the movie.
Barely any character growth until the end, animation was fine & character designs weren’t my fave ever. I liked the gothic tone though!
