The film won several awards, including the Japan Academy Prize and Tokyo Anime Awards for Animation of the Year. The English version was licensed and produced by Kadokawa Pictures USA along with Ocean Productions that make the dubbing and released by Bandai Entertainment in 2008.

I really recommend this film. The story is really interesting and unexpected in the end. The character design is incredible and you can note this even more because of the HD resolution of the movie.
