Edgar Cochran’s review published on Letterboxd:
Sometimes, cyberpunk is not precisely interpreted as a new life style. Sometimes, the reign of terror of technology is interpreted as the ultimate doom of the human race. In the world of Kôkaku Kidôtai, we arrive to the conclusion that we have come to a point of irreversible outcomes: alternate realities taking over our psyche, machines raping our pride, strong political figures becoming meaningless and God being farther from us like modern audiences are far from appreciating good cinema.
Do not allow the sequel to be missed; your eyes won't believe the animation quality.
