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 not near to be ready to make a review on it. Mostly because I feel I won’t be able to give the movie justice if I review it before I watch some other Osamu Tezuka adaptations (even though Metropolis in my personal opinion is not at all an adaptation of Osamu Tezuka’s manga with the same name).

I don’t make any sense, I am sorry. All I want to tell you is this. Look 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. Just look how different anime can look like. See you next time (^_^)/
