Great! What do you expect? It's anime!

There are two parallel plots in this great movie - one is a family gathering and a budding romance; the other is a takeover of virtual reality by an A.I. program that is leading to nuclear disaster. I especially loved the extended family story, with "granny" as a leading character. Warning - there are a couple of moments when there is some inappropriate humor. In the virtual reality battles, there is some violence that may be too much for little kids.
