    And once again i'm hoping it has this layered story like Bloody monday had. but Bloody monday took larger elements from the manga and this movie doesn't look remotely similiar to original anime.

    Berg katze is played by a women? uh that's fine and all but couldn't they cast a bishounen type of person. i'm not going to suspend my disbelief that this person is suppose to be a half man half women type of person because there are men that look like women and there are women that look like men.

    than again judging from the trailer the girl that looks like berg katze doesn't even play berg katze.

    Yusuke please make this movie work!.
