I vaguely remember what the original Blade Runner was all about having been many years since I watched it, but overall it captures the feel of the original movie very nicely. Lots of chaos there at the end.

That was really damn good. If I had one complaint it would be that some of the dialogue was trying a little too hard to be thought provoking/intellectual and just came off sort of silly. That said, the original movie had some of that as well.

This actually reminded me a lot of the shorts from The Animatrix both stylistically and in intention to flesh out a cinematic world.

I do wonder what someone who wasn't as nuts about the Bladerunner mythos as I am would think though. I'm curious if seeing this would prompt someone to watch the old movie or to go see the new one.

I really hope the new movie is good. I'm going to see it day one regardless but the trailers to this point haven't really convinced me.

loved it. everything was spot on. the sounds, visuals, mood and subject matter. a faithful extension of the original film.
illustrates why Tyrell fell and Wallace Corp became the new replicant manufacturer.
Cant wait for the new Bladerunner movie.

Really solid. I hope the upcoming movie is just as good.

Best of the three "prequels" imo. And not because it's an anime. It really felt like a story was being told instead of an "info dump" in anticipation of the movie which actually makes me anticipate the movie.

The dub voice acting for this is really good. I like it.

Never seen anything related to Blade Runner before but this gave me more interest.

It may be a short, but damn, very well done.

The environment and action sequences alone left me in awe.

That was quite a visual and atmospheric treat. Trixie's action sequences were particularly mesmerizing:

Wish those sequences were more common in anime. Bravo to the staff of this production.

I saw Blade Runner back as a kid, but it didn't really leave much of an impression. After watching this, I'm looking to rewatch the original film and see how I receive it now. Didn't realize that new film was coming out so soon. Depending on my rewatch, I might just check that out too.

Because of no subtitles (I'm deaf), I'm skipping this.

Same as Children of Ether. Just another one I would not able to watch because of no subtitles.

Kinda Bebop-style, huh?

Defo was a good watch, Blade Runner being one of my all-time favorites sci-fi's. It was insightful to see it from the replicant's perspective, much like the end of the original movie. (PS, that monologue at the end was totally unscripted--very poetic and existential) Looking so forward to the beginning of this next month!

I thought it was decent. Visually it was stunning, of course. The choreography for the action scenes were breathtaking, which is the norm for Watanabe projects.

Admittedly, I've never seen the original Blade Runner so I was going in blind. I still don't understand everything but this did help shed some light on what the story of the original is about. Wish it had more dialogue too.
