Hype that I am finally watching this, wish I saw this in theaters, saw the ad last year but forgot about it.
Hype for music and jazz, heard people say it was the best music genre anime movie or something like that, and I love jazz so HYPE

Everything was so well animated, the detail on everything too DAMN, the transitions while they were playing were crazy too.
