The greatest anime ever made!
In September last year I had a lot of luck. I checked on ebay and there it was Swan Lake so i bid on the item and finally I had won it. And the film was sent to me only a week after thanks to a fast money order. I was very amazed after seeing this film again. It was good and romantic and beautiful. If I am bored I can just watch Swan Lake to forget about why I am bored. Swan Lake is truly a very amusing anime.

I was 19 when I bought Swan Lake at ebay last year. And it was about 13 years ago I last saw it but then it was in Swedish. Now this is in English and i understand it very well so that is not a problem.

Swan Lake or "Svansjön" as it is called in Swedish was very rare to find and I had almost given up the hope about it until I saw it on ebay. I am so glad that I can watch it over and over again without getting bored.

The plot is very well done and easy to follow and the main characters a also very beautiful. Swan Lake is about prince Siegfried who is looking for a future bride to be queen when he becomes king. I am so thankful I finally bought Swan Lake because it wasn't easy to find. And finally I found it. This is my favourite film so I can only say: Swan Lake is the greatest anime ever made.
