There is Jin-Rou and then there is anime movies. This movie sets the bar too high for other movies. Its the best movie I’ve seen in term of movies not just animation. The Psychology in the move is mind blowing. So I’ve seen lots of action and military movies mostly live action and none of them were as good and Jin-Rou. I’m afraid to say something that might spoil the movie. You see Kazuki doesn’t seem like your average protagonist. Which is why I’m so taken by this movie.

The movie’s animation is incredible you wouldn’t guess that it was released 17 years ago. I feel like nothing I would say would do this movie justice. It a must watch.

Overall Rate: 10/10
