Having been a fan of the original anime the reimagining of this clut classic got me excited. However watching the first part...you are (not) alone i was a bit dissapointed as all i could see was better graphics. Now the second part is out i can see what was trying to be done. The story has changed so much to the original that it could be classed a work in its own right. If you are a fan of the old or new to anime get this you will (not) be wasting your money or time.
