Not long after i got married my husband turned me on to Anime (Inuyasha,Ranma,Berserk,Lain,Nadesico,Fruits Basket). Perfect Blue got such good reviews, I bought it for my husband for Christmas. We watched as soon as he opened it! The beginning was really lagging and i was getting really bored and easily distracted, that's why i gave it only 4 stars. Once the movie picked up the pace and got more interesting i was totally into it! It's a great movie and the characters are more life like than most Anime i'm used to watching! This wouldn't be my first choice, but i would recommend it!
