Watched Karas a couple of nights ago. It is one of those animes that seems to start in the middle. Not a lot of character introduction. It just jumps in and starts going full bore. Some wild action sequences in it though. It was liking watching The Batman jacked up on speed. Fairly good use of CGI. It is interesting how Japanese animators are incorporating CG without losing the traditional anime look. It sure ended dumb, though. It was like they decided, "Okay. That's enough. We're done for the night". I hope they actually finish it with a follow-up movie. Doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of sense, but has some kick-ass action set pieces. Worth a rental anyways.
