Well I got the disc in and checked it out. You weren't kidding, the audio for this film is outstanding. I haven't heard surround use this good in quite sometime. Very immersive. The low end is incredible to, clean and very tight.
The video presentation is also outstanding, I didn't notice any kind of compression noise in backgrounds which is very rare on DVD.
The only issue I had with the film was the blending of computer animation with traditional hand drawn. Sometimes it just didn't fit very well. It almost seemed like the hand drawn stuff wasn't near as good as the CG stuff. Not all the time, just in particular scenes, like right before the initial break in. There are a bunch of people at a party but they aren't even moving. They just look like quick drawings that stay static, but the background is breathtaking.
If you have a region free player, definately pick this one up!!!! Thank you very much wallinski for the recommendation.
