Name-dropping "Magnetic Rose" is my litmus test for how shitty or non-shitty a person's taste in anime is.
It was directed by Kōji Morimoto, scripted by Satoshi Kon and based on an idea by Katsuhiro Otomo. Basically as close to a dream team as an anime production can get. I love it.
Don't forget Magnetic Rose's soundtrack was composed by Yoko Kanno - the primary influence being Madame Butterfly.
Now I'm depressed over the death of Satoshi Kon all over again.
It's stuff like this that makes me hate our shitty future filled with tween hackery.
It's unbelievably beautiful, but LORDY is that movie a downer.
Five stars for Magnetic Rose - arguably the best piece of anime under 60 minutes, if not one of the best period.
The rest of the movie was fairly unmemorable though.
