The animation itself is quite pretty with some nice detail and the characters are designed quite well. The story itself is interesting, but not as punchy as those from big animation companies and i liked the overall feel.
The only thing that got me was the lip-syncing. It was pretty bad and very distracting from what should've been an engaging story. I understand the difficulties that come with animaton, but I just thought that going that extra mile would've kept me keen.
What should've been an original and totally great story was ruined by the mis-matched lip-sync. Rent before you buy, but I feel that every animation-lover should watch it once.
