what an amazing experience.

probably the best movie i will ever see.

gorgeous animation, great storytelling, what a pity it had to end.

there isn't really much more to say about it.

forget about people's problems with it.

just go and see it.

i'm probably biased since i love the style and am interested in Japanese culture and Buddhism.

if you even have an inkling of interest in these you will probably love it.

PS: IMDb, your criteria for review submission are ridiculous to put it mildly.
