But seriously, grabbing it now. Hope it's good because I was not the least bit impressed with his other works.
Eh, it was alright. The art was oustanding, with some great animation for some of the fight scenes and some absolutely jaw-dropping backdrops and scenery porn moments, although it was pretty generic in terms of ideas, and borrowed heavily from nausicaa and laputa: castle in the sky. The actual film was pretty straight forward, and had a fairly unremarkable conclusion by all accounts.
But as far as a source of new desktop backgrounds goes, 10/10
edit: SPOILERS AHEAD!
I did like how despite the obvious potential, they completely discarded any theory of the teacher being asuna's dad early on, wasn't expecting that. Also liked asuna's decision at the end of the earth or whatever.
There's something really bugging me, I'm trying to think, but there was some film or book maybe (pretty sure it was western) where some village chief or whatever is expecting a sacrifice for some ritual or offering or something, and then his son turns up and he's like "no, not this! this is not what i meant" that had massive similarities with the ending of children who chase voices, and I can't remember what it was.
