I've had this on the list for a while now, and anticipate it being very good (same director who did Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo). However, I'm still waiting on a good sub...

Another mediocre work that gets more attention than it really deserves. Well, considering it as animation (not anime), western spectators whose anime experiences are limited to Ghibli works could be in awe.

Definitely deserved it.
Although I can see why many people were disappointed at the movie and storyline.. I was too when I discovered it used a lot of CGI(?) scenes and portrayed characers differently. (Compared to Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo)

But, just because they share staff people like to compare the two. Please don't.
If they did, there would be no reason to work on another project.
(Just like the ongoing references to Baccano in the Durarara thread. Please, for the love of god.. we know.)

Anyhow, I thought this was actually quite refreshing, and seeing how technology has been dominating our lives for so long, it was perfect. Remember Second Life, that used to be a small hit a couple of years ago? I could completely imagine taking part in such a grand community like OZ that's accessible via desktops, laptops and phones. And all those opportunities it offered? I would love to see such a thing being realised on the net in the future.

Oh, and for the R2 users amongst us, the movie has been licensed by Manga Entertainment, and will be released September 2010!~

personally think its deserves it for the trippy animation in "OZ" and the general story
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).
