I bought this DVD not really knowing what to expect. It had been a while since I had bought any anime. It took a while to get going, but once it did I was hooked. The tension created is almost unbearable, and it does a good job of confusing you. I didn't like the ending so much, it built up with so much fantasy, and left without explaining things.
The extras are pretty good, the presentation is very nice. It's all layed out like a website in keeping with the Mima's Room theme. I think if I had the choice of renting it instead then I wouldn't have bought it, it's a good film, but I'm not sure if it was worth the money.
