If you have already rented this I would like to give you my condolences. To those of you who hesitated and rented something else, you dodged the bullet. Thank god I got this rental for free. The story was less than epic to say the least. The main character is on a quest for revenge, but you don't find that out until the last 20 minutes of the movie. The characters had less personality than the coiled piles of crap that my dog leaves on the back lawn. The only part that I actually enjoyed was the funny but short bar fight at the beginning. The battles are much akin to the Record of Lodoss war battles, which is to say mostly still frames but a couple of 5 second action fights.
With the hour+ this movie took from my reasonably useful time I feel resentful enough to give this anime a 3/10.
