This is a rare opportunity of a life time when you see a film releasing world wide or i mean all theaters in the US, such as imax etc. Overall shout out to gkids who distributed this film. when it to animation and character design in this film which first started from a comic series that i should probably check out but anyways the way 4c studio adapted so well and so beautiful i was blown away plus this contains veteran animator also other in-between animator as well. Watch the English version. its more proper to the story it take place

This is my first review, so please don't kill me for any mistakes... ;)

Interesting that a quite niche-anime like Mutafukaz gets a two-days cinema screening in Germany thanks to Peppermint. There were just around 20 people in the movie when I was watching it, so financially it may not have been that good for the cinema. Still for me it was worth it.

Story (3/10):
For me, the only bad thing about the movie was the story. Without doing any spoilers, it's just senseless and hilarious, especially in the second half of the movie. It fits to the movie in general, but some things just happen randomly read more

Just watched the American premiere of MFKZ:
The first thing I'd have to point out about this movie is its striking stylistic identity. It's a Japanese adaptation of a French graphic novel with HELLA American influences. This is pretty much a signature of how the definition of "real anime" is has been blurred in the recent years.
The art and animation delivered this mashup of cultural identities so well that it definitely absorbs the viewer into this dilapidated anime L.A. universe. Background art is crisp and detailed as hell which makes an interesting blend with the abstract, fluidly off-model character animations.
The atmosphere of the entire piece read more
