Just got my copy of Mulan II. Well, actually, I got the "Mulan Value Pack" which was released in Japan last month and consists of both Mulan:Special Edition and Mulan II.
Briefly skimmed through Mulan II, and so far it's as Luke described in his review. The animation is more than adequate. Not as good as Lion King 1.5, but not as bad as some of the earlier DTVs. The only big problem is that Mulan in particular looks quite off-model in many shots. I know that she's not the easiest character to draw consistently, but it was still rather distracting. Where was this animated, anyway? I saw lots of Japanese names in the credits, so I'm guessing the Japanese studio.
From what I've seen, the story seems quite nice, if a bit heavy-handed. I mean, they just keep hammering that theme into you. Also, although I was a fan of Mushu in the first film, I really couldn't stand him in this one. As with other DTVs, they made the mistake of reverting his character to what it was before the end of Mulan, essentially erasing any of the character development that occured in Mulan. Mark Moseley's dismal impersonation doesn't help matters, either. Speaking of voices, they also shouldn't have had Ming-Na talking before Lea started singing, because the contrast in voices is just too obvious.
Also, that Atomic Kitten song at the end is beyond

Are you friggin' kidding me?
