Hello to everyone, I'm Paul and I write anime reviews for this website It's 1999 after premiere, but still this anime is very popular. While watching this anime, I just felt like I was on drugs. Movie not for everyone, like all the movies in anime category. I'm sure I will watch it at least couple of times more. The music is seriously soul of this anime. I expected disappointment from this anime, but now I'm more happy than ever before. We need movies like Kakyusei, we need them to move our civilization towards. This anime is discovery of the 1999 year. It won't ever beat the book, but for a anime it is excellent work.
