Finally saw this movie now. Or atleast, now in a way I could understand everything. I was surprised how much I liked it. The acting of the characters seemed pretty natural somehow (which isn't usually the case for anime) and they
mixed in some different subplots - although I felt a bit bad for Tomohiko/Balder until the end. I guess this confounding with his friend was even somewhat believable considering the online/offline behavior of gamers like them.
But I think the characters I liked the most were Grandpa (he is just an adorable cool old guy) and David. Damn, even his avatar was awesome. Now I am curious to know what exactly happens in Thanatos, hope someone will sub this
as well or upload a .txt file somewhere. Can't really complain about the CGI either, since I don't watch many movies of that kind anyway - let's say that it was fitting to the MMORPG setting. Maybe the end could have been a bit longer overall
(it seemed like the players were a bit too easily persuaded to help, considering the danger Virus Bug - or The World, since they didn't know about that thing I guess - emitted for everyone them). But I think I liked the movie pretty much overall.
