I started reading the manga a little over a year ago, long before there was an anime and live action for it. I fell for the series instantly. I was not disappointed in the least by the movie, the choreography of the fighting scenes were 98% accurate, I say 98% because I don't think they could convey the fighting from any more properly than they did, after all it's not 100% realistic. The characters, were very much akin to their manga counterparts, to the point that most of the main cast looked exactly like their manga version, it's as if they stepped out of the move pages of the books, and was impressive. The story being packed into a movie, meant that there were thing's obviously left out, but I feel like they stayed very true to the plot and didn't miss anything of importance. I don't see why you wouldn't want to watch this movie, if you are a fan of the manga/and or anime already? It's far more true to it's original counterparts than a lot of live action's out there. Hope there will be a part 2!
