I saw it in 2D, I think it will look fantastic in 3D. Movie quality wise, it was weird. It was like they took scenes from the original and remixed them to tell a different story. If you go in expecting a different story, you might like it. If you are expecting the same story as the original, you will be disappointed.
Thanks. My anime days are long behind me and I don't remember the original at all. It will be freah for me going into it now so that seems for the best. Just visually it looks awesome so I am eager.
