Katalina, a Lieutenant of the Empire, seeks to escape one of their airships with the experimental subject Lyria. An accident results in them landing on an island, where Lyria is discovered by Gran, a young local who has trained with the sword. As he fights off the Empire soldiers pursuing Lyria, he's eventually joined by Katalina. When the opposition becomes too fierce to handle, Gran dies at the claws of a hydra, only to be brought back to life by Lyria, who combines her effort with Gran's to summon a dragon that drives off the Imperial forces. Now Gran's life force is split with Lyria, so he must go where she goes. That's not a problem for him, since he was planning to go on a journey to seek out his absent father anyway.

Do want Zoku. But as always, the high cost for the movie from Aniplex is a bit of a barrier, as they're charging $20 more for it than the Natsume and Pancreas movies I got a few months earlier. And still being unemployed, best case where I could get it would hopefully be around income tax time since I also have the holiday season to deal with right now.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for

Old Man Dream: So.... dragging my heels for another 2.5 weeks before Ralph Breaks the Internet is available on Disney+? Yay!
Nov 25, 2020 3:22:00 GMT
Taka: Really? Disney is slow to add the stuff that already got released. Same goes for DC Universe. Then DC UNiverse got converted into a comic only app. Well, Disney has more success. I think the other streaming sites are trying to hold on for money too.
