Eye candy and a much more digestable storyline
Having watched the original series and movie, this new rerelease is a godsend. it's common knowledge that the creator of the series essentially went crazy towards the end of the series and thus the imagery and story towards the end of the series got really wacky. so far, this newer version stays true to the essence of the original story but does it in a less extreme fashion, as well as introduces a new character, adding something new to long time followers of the series. the animation is without a doubt some of, if not the most beautiful i have seen in an anime. the use of computer animation to enhance the film is done very seamlessly. this is truly a blu ray worthy animated film.
