Having watched the other movies in this five part story arc, Yuria's disappointed me the most. As someone who only had seen the movie before watching these story arcs, it was actually worth watching to learn more about Yuria and what happened to her as the movie failed to do so.
I had a great deal of high hopes for this movie arc as I imagined it would have gone over a lot of what happened in the original motion picture version and it did..just not the way I expected.
It managed to gloss over every one of the epic battles that took place. It was like they purposely wanted to crush your dreams of seeing all the great reenactments take place and it hurt knowing that they squandered the opportunity.
To add insult to injury they took the time that they could have used for these battles to replay events that should have been viewed if anyone took the time to look at the other story arcs. It was not a very smart film decision in my opinion.
Some may say they were taking a higher road as to express a "softer"(:P) side for the heroines story line, I say they were just trying to cut corners in an Arc that should have been littered with memorable fight scenes and its just ashamed they took this route because there may never be another retelling of this the story again.
