Nice......Not for people with epileptic seizures or ADD
28 September 2017 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Nice visual movie, but lacks factors that holds attention of preteens and teens. I not going to put what movie is about. Or copy text like the other person did translated from Japanese to English. If have a chance see it.... do so. But don't expect anything but blaring sound and Quick flashes of light one the screen which can be very dangerous people with epilepsy or ADD
