It was a good story, targeted towards a younger generation than I am though, but still appreciated. Scattered thoughts as I had sent to porsupah in post-watching ramblings:
Apparently there is a game adaption. Japanese, obviously. Damn.
Squee, catpeople~
Those streams of demons reminded me of the matrix sentinels...
Subs were a bit odd here and there - spotted at least one blatant mistake (start of the "spiral wolf" scene, he says "inu?"/dog?, yet it gets translated to "Hi there" ^^;; ).
Need screenshots of the silly stackable birdies though. Silly things... where have I seen them before...?
Predictable plot, alas. Typical Good vs. Evil, travel the land for magical artifacts RPG sort of thing, compressed into about 2 hours. Typical characters. Given the amount of time though, character development was decent. Plot, similarly so. (as in, had it been a series, or longer than just 2 hours, it could have been even better.)
Catpeople, again. =^^=
Yay fantasy worlds. Oh, how I've dreamed before......
More than pretty good animation. Some use of CGI that was a bit odd (flight of the dragons), but otherwise effective. Details were mostly there, at least for the first part, like what you might see in a Studio Ghibli work.

probably a 9/10 for kiddies ages 8-14. For us older folk... eh, if you enjoy poking your inner kid who enjoys fantasy/adventure, yea, it's a fine way to use up two hours. Otherwise, you may wish to find something more solid...

future anime

I wanted to look into this one. Haven't yet though. At first, it looked interesting (from a completely fantasy-fan standpoint, that is), and for some reason I was thinking of Spirited Away by Miyazaki so I thought my sister might like it. Do you think she would?


Oh, and I wanted to ask you if you had heard of and/or are anticipating this one:

Guardian of the Sacred Spirit

And here's a youtube vid (the teaser) that I had immediately looked up after finding the ANN page.

(I swear to god, that young man she fights looks a lot like Sai.)

I don't know why but that one caught my eye on ANN, and it doesn't even say anything about it!

I had wanted to show and ask you about two weeks ago but I get lazy whenever I get near my computer. :P

Re: future anime

Err, depending on age and genre preferences, maybe..yes?

Nope, have not heard of those~
