Character roles could have been defined better at the start. One of the shocks near the end is very predictable early on. The characters are OK. The dialogue was mostly good. The plot wasn't as interesting as I expected and seemed confusing even though it really wasn't. I think the confusion came from not being sure what the boundaries and therefore true purpose with the charcater's motives really are. I suppose that's the mystery but it had little suspense as there was little set up for what was at stake and I wasn't sure where the risks truly lay. The end seemed to have picked up on a good plot idea but then it finished. It was OK but not for everyone.

A little slow and hard to piece together in the beginning, but really liked the ending and animation.
