Closeup on a mouth appearing among the clouds, painted lips whispering tones, dissolve to a record spinning spinning spinning. Contains a level of visual sophistication unheard of in cheap manga adaptations. Recommended.
Largely post-Devilman schlock, but the climax contains an anime apocalypse that nearly manages to dwarf those of Akira and Evangelion in terms of sheer magnitude of destruction. So many people explode into strobing red gunk.
Fun movie! Slow and pokey and mostly focused on watching a dude explore a weird industrial hellscape and meet strange people. The whole thing has a bit of a 90s adventure game vibe to it, which is always good.
