Interesting movie. I'm not entirely sure what to make of it, to be honest. Standing out most obviously is the heroine, Ginga, whose personality is the first tell that this is basically a knock-off Studio Ghibli flick. She's very independent minded and shunts decorum in favor of forging her own path, basically, and this puts her in light conflict with the other women vying to be the next empress. But, ultimately, the contest to become the next empress is not at all important to the story, which always has an emperor assassination plot on the backburner before transitioning into a war. I think this movie ...

The only thing I can say that is really nice about the film is the background art.
The characters are either cliche or annoying. Ginga is a poor country girl allegedly and yet she acts like a spoiled city brat and it's not charming, especially when the characters scold her and then later say "oh she's so special she will surely be the empress". She's not quirky just annoying. (How can it be that she doesn't know the difference between male and female when she's grown up among farm animals..?)
There's also too many tonal changes which is really annoying.
It looks like a Ghibli film without the ...
