Wow, thats great and weird at the same time. The manga is so graphic (in many different ways) i wonder if theres going to be alot of cut scenes, because this can be easily be rated ‘R’.

The review I linked to above didn’t give it a very good rating, so maybe this might be a rare case of a movie that could benefit from a Hollywood reimagining. The story is certainly weird and interesting enough to attract someone like Zac Snyder… maybe.

That’s just me looking forward to Sucker Punch and Superman though.
