Synopsis

Spring marks the start of another new school year at a junior high school in Kamakura. A new transfer student, Ryoichi Kyogoku joins the 8th grade. Kyogoku has a very special proficiency in telepathy and has been ordered by his father to use this ability to scan other people's minds and take over the school.

He instantly gains popularity at school from his good looks and charisma and he sets about taking control of the school. As people begin to fall under Kyogoku's spell, he covertly manipulates his followers and pushes aside anyone who gets in his way.

With the school almost completely under the control of Kyogoku, only one boy seems unaffected—Seki. Does Seki have what it takes to save everyone from the clutches of mind control?

After watching this, I was torn between regret of even trying it and a slight satisfaction that I was able to complete it.

STORY (4)

This movie starts off in a cliche manner. There's a new transfer student who, from his very first lines, we can confirm is not from Earth. We are introduced to the main set of characters- a typical, "you pervert!", finger-pointing anime girl who is the neighbor of the main character, the girl that the main character likes who's talented, shy, and also typical, and the main character himself who seems to be the typical anime guy who does not measure up to read more

Vivid, intense and often exaggerated, like our emotions, Nerawareta Gakuen's (NG) focus relies solely on displaying those properties. Its artistically crafted scenes and unconventional use of what might seem like a regular plot deepens and strengthens its story and characters by mere emotional display. Using methods and devices which are all so familiar to us, and misdirecting our instinctive focus away from these things towards the importance of underlying motives brings out an entirely new layer of storytelling, which is often left covered up by other works of the genre.

Setting
The setting is rather undefined, it takes place on Earth yet with some fictional elements, and read more

Recommendations

Similar concept, time travelling + little bit of romance
both are very well animated
but Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo has better story and characters imo
If you're looking for a philosophical, confusing time travel plot, these two stories are alike.
For instance, both display some similarities like good soundtrack and animation, the overuse of cellphone theme, romantic hints and again, a future where mankind is almost at extinction. I prefer NG because it develops its characters much better. In both, the plot is not very consistent and leaves you thinking and wondering, but if you appreciated one, you'll surely appreciate the other.
