This really is a beautiful animation. In fact it is quite breath taking. It rivals even the best of Studio Ghibli's back work. The story is one of many imaginative and creative twists and characters. Aliens, Five tailed foxes, Shadow men etc. The visuals are astonishing in parts. CGI is used sparingly to enhance the 2D animation. It brings it to life in ways I can't remember seeing. The story itself may be typical fantasy, but their is enough truly touching romance, funny sidekicks and dark moments (the opening is essentially a horror) to make this a rare family film that should be treasured by everyone forever and ever.
this k-anime has all the right elements: cute animals, mystery, childhood gaiety, combined with high-resolution 3D-scapes and action, yet lacks the passion and moving story that drives this genre of anime; it thus ends up as (pretty and) lifeless as the soul-stolen bodies it portrays. nonetheless, a commendable effort, particularly shining in the gfx department.
