Mamoru Oshii, the director of Ghost in the Shell, returns with the beautiful and intoxicating The Sky Crawlers, a story about a young fighter pilot seeking purpose in his forgotten life.

QUALITY:
Amazing.  The picture has a clarity usually not seen outside of Pixar releases.

BONUS FEATURES:
3 featurettes.

The bonus features are severely lacking, with only 3 featurettes, the most interesting of which is the interview with Oshii.  Despite that, I can whole-heartedly recommend this release for any anime fan and even action movie fans that don't mind the anime look.  This movie easily returns Oshii to the forefront of anime.
