    Skip this, read the Manga instead

There's a fight between a naked bird woman and a flaming octopus man. $#!% gets crazy!

The plot doesn't make cohesive sense because it's missing most of it's substance.

    This is a movie that has quite a couple of twist and mystery up until the end. Basically, what's truth end up being modified multiple time until, at the end, the real truth is revealed.

    The quality is where I have removed the first 0.5 (half of a star). Initially, the quality is top-notch, but at some point you can notice that the quality of the animation is reduced and the movie visually move ...
