tbh I did not know this was based on a tv show (actually compiled from the episodes and made into a feature film) when I viewed this last year in theater. I suppose it makes sense now. I think I’m gonna rewrite the TMDb description so it aligns with the story.
I really like the world building and characters. Reminds me of an Final Fantasy game. I’m going to watch the rest of the episodes which make up the second feature which I somehow missed in theaters last year.
UPDATE: Holy cow I watched this exactly one year to the day after seeing it in theater. I don’t think I’ve ever done that before (honestly had no idea until I logged it just now).
