Romantic fairy tale with big accent on visual art, which sadly did not contribute to the quality of animation.
I give 8 to the intrigue that took place before the story begins and reveals in the final part. It has love and sacrifice, devotion, friendship, betrayal and forgiveness. On the other hand, the adventures of the main character are somewhat boring and predictable, so i give it 5 at most.
If you can draw, it doesn't mean that you can make animation. Beautiful stills + zoom in and zoom out - not the type of art I look for in anime.
Hence 7 for the graphics, 5 for
Idealized mythological figures without development. Beautiful at their places, but too plane and defined to be believable.
I'm glad that I've watched it to the end, because the ending was the most tragic and involving part. I don't see myself ever watch it again though.
