Chi-Chan amazing AMAZING one more time to reiterate AMAZING movie but movies with "messages" dont really speak to me like that being preached to some may go oh I hate that because they simply dont want to be told the truth but for me I dont want to hear it because its just plain hypocrisy and this is nothing but a lie asura represented (in my mind) what humanity really is and that humanity is nothing but liars that deserve the suffering brought onto them and if you want to survive either live through a facade or rely and trust solely on yourself because every human no matter how innocent appearing there all liars there all cheats and they all have a secret everyone is evil in some way shape or form they just deny it because they cant accept it anyone that argues that is lying to themselves

this movie felt so light I felt at peace watching the whole thing regardless of which scene it was its just a reminder that everyone is disposable and YOU SHOULD ONLY CARE AND FOCUS ON YOU NO ONE ELSE

Mary Ho I just watched this dark anime at Shanghai film festival.. Though some parts were violent, the story had beautiful and meaningful messages which i found to be spiritual .. A deeper understanding of being a human being and the will to live..Should win awards for graphics
