I tried to really pay attention to the story this time. I even went back a few times to re-listen to parts where a lot was said quickly. Still, the story here has a lot of confusing aspects, that I'm pretty sure I'm not following.
The whole movie is really well animated, and makes me happy, but the biggest achievement by far is the music. This is easily one of the best film soundtracks ever created. Susumu Hirasawa is a genius. The music is actually the only reason I went back to watch the movie a 2nd time. So most of my points are given for the music!!
I think I liked the movie more watching it in a theater than watching it on youtube. You could feel the music.
