    What other Anime movies would relate to it.

    Thinking of seeing it this weekend.

    If you haven't seen the series, it's kind-of hard to follow.

    Didn't realize there was a series.

    I'll have to see if I can find the series somewhere and rent it.

    Seems like an Interesting story line.

    But has anyone seen the movie yet? How are the graphics?

    The animation is pretty good, better than the series which had exceptional animation itself. The movie is like a different interpretation of the story that the series told. I like the series more though because there is more character development and it expands on the story more instead of condensing it down to fit into the lenght of a single movie. I would highly recommend the series to anyone interested in fantasy stories like LOTR. Not the same style but it has it's share of myth and strange creatures.

    I saw it the other day. I thought it was good, but it did help that I've watched the entire series. I guess I like the series better, as I prefer the depth the in the story lines. I liked most of the characters in the series better (Hitomi's for instance) but I did like at least one better in the movie (Mallerna - she's kinda weak in the show.) I guess I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5. Could have been better but worth seeing.
