My personal favorite movie ever, the characters are engaging, the music is captivating, the animation is stunning, the story and direction are phenomenal, the action is jaw-dropping, and this series is a must-see. You won't be disappointed at all if you watch this series unless you only like childish anime.
Holy crap man, I bought 3 pints of Strawberry Haagen Dazs to prepare for when I watched this! Best movie of 2009, no contest!!! The action scenes were amazing, the animation was excellent as usual, and Touko, Shiki, and even Mikiya (in his own way) were pretty badass in this one.
