As my unoffical 100th anime movie/series, I thought I'd make it a good one and I managed to hit the jackpot. :D

I would do a review or something, but frankly my writing skills wouldn't do it justice, suffice to say that the plot, visuals and soundtrack are all fantastic. This is a DVD, I would recommend watching in Dolby 5.1, as it makes possibly the best use I've heard in quite some time.

One small bugbear, the R2 subtitles have two lines missing. I'm guessing the transcript was made from an incorrectly mixed 5.1 preview or something as both lines are only audible on from rear channels.

Even so, still :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: out of five.

Watch it!

And yes it does deserve it's own thread. :P

Despite Project and my usual tastes this totally lacks any ecchi O.o

Well worth a viewing. Once you get past the 2 minutes of studio credits at the beginning :lol:

The animation is beautiful, the CG isn't overly heavy, the plot is solid, i can't find the original manga anywhere though :scratch:

The discs arep so shiney too!!! Even the outter caseing feels good >_>;;

I think i'm going to watch the dvd and have a crack at reviewing it :D

There is no 'original' manga, as that too is an adaptation of the Toki o Kakeru Shōjo novel, which isn't available in English (although it is listed with an April release on Amazon).

The manga adaptation is called, Girl who runs through time, which is easy enough to find.

Okay, so I watched it last night.

Dude...that was awesome. Great plot and visuals, music was brilliant. Characters you can't help but like etc.

I loved it. Definitely worth all the chagrin I got from my brothers for not buying something they'd watch just because one of them got a Sean Lock stand-up DVD that same day. Arses... :roll:

But yeah. Great film. 9.5/10 :D
