Beautifully animated fantasy anime. The art style is quite unique (not that detailed but refined and lushly animated) and the film wrestles with some interesting themes, but the lore is a little overwrought and the film lacks subtlety. It's definitely worth watching, but there are some small details keeping it from a higher score.
