Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised by it.

I saw this movie, it was pretty great, all the stories were pretty interesting. Although it was getting close to dragging near the end. Actually Asano was the only one of the main cast I wasn't too interested in from the previews. My favorite stories were the ones with the 3 thieves.

I believe it is a physical representation of the psychic abilities of a newtype. Newtypes possessed a kind of sixth sense where they could sometimes predict actions in battlefield and sense the emotions of other newtypes and people.
