When people talk to me about manga and Japanese animation, I clasp my arms over the top of my head and run as fast as I can. Miyazaki? Heavens yes. Japanese music? By all means.

Manga, tho... no es bueno. Yet I had to stop and wonder about Tekkon Kinkurito.

From what I make of the French (at fous d'anim), it's directed by Shojiro Nishimi, the guy who did Mind Game, and the art direction is by Shinji Kimura, who did Steamboy. Both of which are movies that I might have seen, if they weren't all ... manga-ey.

Can it be completely bad? Ehhhhhh?

Well, the stills look marvelous, anyway.
