Overall, the movie looked cool, but sometimes the 3D animation clashed with the 2D animation. Maybe I'm just not used to the use of both together.

Wow, what a sacrifice to become a tree like that.
Wow really? Teardrops to release the band?

Lol. Kind of silly that the volcano would self-destruct.
Some of the dialogue is kind of cheesy, but overall I really like the animation and overall story.
I would have liked to have seen the movie with Japanese audio and English subtitles.

Some of the dialogue feels unnatural.

The animation, however, is pretty good. Though as before, I still think the 3D sometimes clashes with the 2D.

Overall, the movie is just okay, being hurt mainly by an undeveloped plot.
