If I had to nitpick, some of the animation in places looked a bit stiff and robotic (in particular, the dragon's wing flapping, and Ara's torso at times). However, there were also moments that more than made up for this. In particular, I thought the subtle facial expression acting was very well done. And that's not to mention all the scenes where some cloth/hair sim wrangling needed to take place.
