So, German distributors don't seem to be interested in this movie at all, and with all the COVID related shenanigans, let's see how many of them are left when the the dust is settled, so I've decided to use another mode of acquiring it.

here's my review  SPOILER: Show
This movie just slaps. It just GOES. It goes and never stops. This is especially rewarding for people familiar with Trigger's/Imaishi's earlier work; he basically just slaps his world view onto the screen in the coolest possible way, so not being bogged down by exposition was quite nice. I really enjoyed the gayness, like how they really laid into the fact the the two male leads made mouth to mouth without the usual Anime shenanigans. The character design is HOT AF, generally visually this is a treat.
The animation is mind-blowing, it's amazing one can tell what's going on in action sequences, despite the sheer amount of stuff on screen at any time; I just adore the vaporwavy color scheme, I always wanted an Anime looking like that. The aesthetic overall is just amazing, it feels like we've *finally* managed to find a blend of CG and 2D that doesn't only work, but actually looks good.
The voice acting is also very good, like this is anime af, but it is still good. I don't know how Trigger and Khara manage to make their voice overs sound good, despite being full of retarded anime bullshit.
Two minor things I can complain about: The beginning doesn't really flow, like it feels like the movie has 3-4 beginnings; and while generally this is a masterpiece of animation, the prologue looks weirdly jank. Idk, maybe it's just the simple designs for the NPCs not matching with the elaborate filter over it... Also, the music is also not my style, Sawano was never the guy who is known for a subtle OST... And normally this fits, but in the beginning it's just a lot. The Engrish, especially is just mega-corny. But this is a personal preference.


Either way, I've preordered the amazing special edition by alltheanime, it's been a long time I got away this satisfied from an Anime.
Might be a 10/10...?

I watched the film, finally, and it is pretty amazing. However, I feel I need to rewatch it. I will xome back here and edit this post. And also answer a post by Gendo'sPapa which I forgot to answer.
