Hannah's comments:
I like this film very much! Even if it contains much violance and blood, it's a good sci-fi anime. It reminds you what will happen if you really try to mess up the humain brain; do leave the nature as it is. The animation itself makes me impressed, the filmcreators do know how to get you with the film, both the story and together with the background sound. As always, see it with Japanese with English subtitle.
