Flying Phantom Ship is a wonderful mystery spectacle for anyone who loves over the top anime. this film was hard to predict, so many events come out of nowhere. things like Giant robots kaiju attacking a city or A spectral skeleton that is out for revenge stepping out from the shadows that possess a flying ghost ship poised with lasers and rockets! if that doesn't make you curious how about a dog that carries around a bag of momentous? at its core this is a film about a boy and his dog and is a metaphor for the sudden moments of loss and hardships in ...

Art: It's some of the best ...
