The English Title of this movie is Reign: The Conqueror
Reign: the Conqeror would have to be the most interesting take I have ever seen on this Historical Figure.
Like Berserk, each episode starts with a voice over introducing the "philosophy" behind that episode and it also has a great Theme song and Score composed by Techno legend Dj Milky.
The creators of Reign took a different approach to handling their version of Alexandar the Great and chose a Sci-Fi/Fantasy approach to the movie. The scriptwriters also weaved in real life characters like Aristotle, Ptolemy, Olympia, Plato etc into the storyline quite well and the script is a thousand times better than the one used by Oliver Stone for his live action version.
While I cannot vouch for the Japanese version I can say that the English version was very well done and thoroughly enjoyable.
If you like movies that are strong on both Fact and Fantasy and that are backed up with a strong plot then you will love this anime.
