I can't believe I never knew of this thing's existence until JUST now! I seriously can't believe it! Where has this movie been all my life?! This thing is just amazing! Wonderful, sublime, awesome, tear-jerking, emotional, beautiful, heartbreaking, I'm running out of adjectives! Worst of all, WHY IS THIS THING NOT SUBBED YET?!? Well, Licca Subs seems to have interest in subbing it, but they better do so once they have time, because this anime movie NEEDS a sub! How did I see this, you ask? Well, the only footage of this movie I could find was from a Russian fansub group, and I don't read more

You owe it yourself to watch this movie. I agree with most of what the previous person stated in their review.

I find it sad that a movie of this quality (ignoring the animation and sound issues) can go unnoticed and unappreciated for so long.

This English sub is quite good, again the animation and sound are not the best, but I think anyone who really loves Anime and wants to see everything Japan has to offer should watch this.

My personal opinion (keep in mind it is my opinion) is that if someone re-made this movie for western audiences it would be very well received.
