Maybe it was good I had only seen a couple of episodes of the anime and read only the first two or three volumes of the manga, as I seemed to enjoy it more than some of the people in the theatre. For some people it strayed too far away from the source.
It was a fairly violent movie, obviously nowhere near as violent as the manga and anime, which was multiplied by the fact the primary leads are 10th graders. Right off the back it changed, Kurono, Kato and Kishimoto are college age. Obviously the violence is toned down a little, but I found it to be not too bad on that part. And of course it lacked the amount of nudity the manga had, much to the disappoint of the males in the theatre."
