I read about this anime movie on magazines so many times when I was in elementary school. But never got a chance to watch it (a rated R movie, not suitable for a grade 4 student), and finally did this afternoon while I was preparing for next week's class in the Old Testament. Yes, I often prepare sermons and classes while listening to angry music or watching rated R movies.

It is surprisingly good. I liked it a lot. The drawing isn't exactly stellar, but it has its style that fits the overall mood of the anime. The violence and sex are stunning, both help in drawing the viewer into the story. The plot doesn't really make sense, but the universe that it creates is quite interesting. Worth watching. I can see why it's a classic.
