I quite liked it, except for Hugo. A lot of people have said that was the weakest element of the script; I would differ by saying the casting was the problem there.

I hope it manages to do just well enough to justify a sequel!

Just went into this completely blind (I don't watch movie trailers, and I haven't seen this anime or read the manga).

I actually enjoyed it! And found out I find photorealistic people with freakishly big eyes far more attractive than I probably should...

The love story seemed... gratuitous? Unnecessary? But overall, I found the entire experience enjoyable, and hope there is a sequel.

Here's the good news, folks: The film grossed over $404 million worldwide, becoming the ninth highest-grossing film of 2019 and Rodriguez's most commercially successful film to-date, per Wikipedia.

So the sequels aren't out of the question yet.
