Maybe I’m too old or have the wrong ethnic makeup (or a combo of both) to appreciate live-action anime. Visually this packs a wallop, truly audacious, but that wears thin after a while and there’s not enough of a coherent story to carry it. I understand the anime version ran in the neighborhood of 25 hours, so the narrative naturally gets chopped up. Satomi Ishihara managed to stand out in a cast of stock characters.
