I felt that the animation and artwork were fantastic, but wasted on an attempt to distill a 40 episode anime with multiple story arcs into a 2 hour movie. They didn't just cut away the fat, they cut right down to the bone. Many arcs were cut away completely, and what they did use was often mangled to the point that whole chunks of the movie made no sense unless you were a huge fan of the series. I have to admit that I loved the dance sequence they added in, but the way they completely pussified Akio, one of the ur-examples of the "magnificent bastard" was a massive waste and then that ending....holy shitballs. What in the actual FUCK was the thinking in that whole sequence?The Utena movie was a good fit for their crossover as it is generally considered the quintessential example of an "anime arthouse film"*
(*I actually like the movie for all its crazy bullshit but it is pretty pretentious)
I am completely with Kyle when he screams out "WHY DID THIS PINK HAIRED BITCH TURN INTO A FUCKING CAR?‽‽‽?" and him shoving JesuOtaku hard when she answers "SYMMMMMBOLISM!!!!"
