Movie

The movie is completely different from the series in almost every way. It is also a LOT darker, heck Hitomi is even suicidal near the beginning.

Despite it's huge differences from the series, it's still a very very good movie, get yourself a copy on ebay

The movie was good...a little different after seeing the series, but I liked the series more. Something about 26 episodes getting to know the characters and situatuin appeals to me a little more...

I think I hated Allen's and Millernia's (er sp..it's late) design the most...I mean I knew it was them...but..yeah. It was also really dark...I could barely see what was going on. Also I think the ending was a tad rushed...I'm sure I could gripe more, but it is basically the entire series (even if it's alternate universe type flare) crammed into an hour and a half.

I agree that the ending felt rushed. I wanted a cataclysmic fight between Van and Folkien. I didn't expect to see (forgot his name) the feline-man step in, and the quick resolution there was cool...but not as cool and well-executed as the fight between Van and Dilandu.

Truthfully the movie was just eye candy. Don't get me wrong, it was nicely done and interesting eye candy, but it was nothing compared to the series. And Iím not sayin' that I didn't like that move, not at all. I loved it!! To me it just doesn't hold up to the series, story wise; though in the movie I was fascinated by the whole goddess of wings thing, which to me appeared to be the whole plot.

But for all you who interested in seein' the movie I highly recommend it! Just don't hold it up to the series and expect to enjoy it. Think of it as a free standing movie and you will ever so fall in love with it! I did!

I thought the movie was great.

Just don't watch it expecting to see the series told in 90 minutes, cause then you'll be dissappointed. Watch it as though you've never seen the series.
