I feel genuine sorrow for anyone who is a fan of anime who hasn’t sat down to watch this brilliant piece of cinema. The animation is brilliant, the story is heart breaking, the characters are memorable and if you’re like me you will most probably cry at some point during the story or at least feel greatly moved by the plight of both robots and humans within the story.
