I used to love showing this movie to people just see there eyes tear up, one of the best anime's i ever seen.
Same here :D.
Wow this is really saddening especially since I just heard about the movie last semester in my Japanese culture course. :/ I certainly will have to watch it sometime soon. Will probably push Gintama aside to watch this now...
Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue), Jun Seba aka Nujabes (worked on music for Samurai Champloo), and now this? This is too much.
