Metropolis, just a few words

Today I watched Metropolis, a movie made by Madhouse studio and directed by Rintaro. The movie was made in 2001. And I am nowhere near being ready to review it. Mostly because I feel I won’t be able to give the movie justice if I write a review before I watch some other Osamu Tezuka adaptations (even though Metropolis doesn’t seem to be a close adaptation of Osamu Tezuka’s manga with the same name).

I don’t make any sense, I am sorry. All I want to is to suggest you to looks at the screenshots made from this movie, and check out the art style ^^/

I can’t show you the animation, but it is also great. In fact, you can say that this show has a better one than Akira, which is famous for its animation. By the way, one of the guys who worked on the animation for this movie is Yoshiaki Kawajiri. I mentioned him before a few times (here – 1, 2).

That is it. Isn’t it awesome how different an anime can look like? See you next time (^_^)/
