Casshern Sucks?

From AnimeNation:

The Japanese Fumihara Weekly Magazine has reported the results of the latest Kiichi Awards, the Japanese version of the American Golden Raspberry Award, for worst Japanese films of 2004.

The Kiichi Awards are determined by a panel of 20 movie reporter and film critic judges. Devilman, which has received universally bad reviews, was voted worst Japanese film of 2004.

Oddly, the live action Casshern movie, which has received numerous international positive critical reviews, was named second worst Japanese film of 2004. The award panelists called the film, "Nothing more than a promotional video for Hikaru Utada's videos." Casshern was directed by Utada's husband, Kazuaki Kiriya.
