Let me just say there's no doubt that after watching this movie I 100% know that this movie has become my favorite animated movie of all time. Everything about this movie is perfect and I mean everything. I love this movie so much because the plot is so meaningful & I can actually relate on a spiritual level to both of the main characters. the meaning of this story is just amazing like I truly understand this movie very well just because I can honestly relate to kyutta. Most importantly the characters are what make this such an amazing movie, Kyuta and kumatetsu made me smile, cry, and laugh throughout the whole entire movie. This movie in my opinion also has one of the best character developments for any animated movie,both of the main characters change drastically & I love it because you can honestly see that they develop in a good way based off of eachother. Everyone needs to watch this, also the animation is very very beautiful and I just know that's one of the many reasing why people won't forget about this movie. Overall this movie beats any other animated movie out there I highly recommend to anyone and I know you'll cry of happiness. I wish I could watch this movie for the first time over and over again (I'll still watch it repeatedly and most definately but it on dvd). I wish Kamatetsu was a sword in my heart.
