What a dogmatic story!!!

The film is actually a vehicle for the teachings of Ryuho Okawa, head of the quasi-religious sect 'The Institute for Research in Human Happiness'.

It is technically quite well made, but the characters are without interest, as is the story.

To reveal it is to make you avoid watching it. there will be a massive amount of spoilers, so be warned!

First, if you are a non believer in a religion of any kind, be assured that, according to this anime, you will rot in hell, with the likes of Hitler and...Nietzche!
Yes! They place Nietzsche on the same level as Hitler! Unbelievable!

Think 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', throw a medley of religious, mythological, historic, and scientific personalities, mix it with themes of time travel, inter dimensions, reincarnation, and romance, add a few drops of morals and dogma, and a dash of New Age spiritualism, and you'll get the fantasy soup that is "The Law of Eternity"

Story 9: I found 'The Laws of Eternity' to be quite enjoyable and amusing. However, if you have any strong religious or ideological preferences, this film may rub you the wrong way. A definite plot that leads you through a series of adventures and different worlds that ends in an read more

its weird that i like it?
Muito parecido com os ensinamentos do espiritismo, me surpreendeu o quão espírita é uma religião do outro lado do mundo, que não é cristã e sequer conhece Kardec. Tudo muito bem explicado. Muito bom, se você quer conhecer mais sobre essas religiões; Aliás, todos os filmes de Ryuho Okawa ensinam um pouco mais sobre esse 'espiritismo', ou melhor, sobre a 'ufologia esotérica' (sim, isso tem nome!) baseada no budismo.
Realmente, its a religious movie, so if you are not, you not gona like it. Its to much crazy to understand, not only afterlife but the "ufological" part.
