Satou Ichirou once called himself "Maryuin Koga" and behaved as if he were a hero in a fantasy world. His strange behavior caused his classmates to bully him, and he left the school.

At his new school, he tries to behave like a normal boy, but one day he meets a girl who cosplays with a blue cape. She calls herself "a researcher traveling from the outer world to search for the 'Dragon Terminal.'" At first, Ichirou rejects the girl, Satou Ryouko, because her behavior reminds him of his embarrassing past, but he changes his mind after seeing her getting bullied.

In order to bring Ryouko back to real life, Ichirou accepts her and his past and begins the final battle as Maryuin Koga.

I'm not sure why this necessarily got such an average score. The characters are a modern Japanese interpretation of Cervantes that is very accessible even to a non-native speaker. It is an hour an a half of tightly written story line with very little empty time, and while the animation is nothing spectacular, there is a genuine interplay between the main hero and heroine that all throughout makes the movie very enjoyable.

There comes a time when most of us tend to dislike reality. Boring people, normal unending days, and nothing much to do. Then we turn to fiction. We visualize ourselves as someone we're not and, in extreme cases, live up to our fantasies.

That's what Aura's story is mainly about. Aura is about a story of former chuunibyou (8th grader syndrome) case who's now trying to become a normal person, that is until a faithful encounter with a girl who calls herself as a "researcher" searching for dragon terminals. At first, he hesitates on helping her as he doesn't want to have a relapse again but read more

Seiji Kishi is an interesting director. But rather than go into a couple paragraphs about him, all you need to know is that he’s a great director when it comes to comedy and a pretty poor director when it comes to everything else. However, as of late, Kishi’s really hit a new low by taking a really interesting story and slaughtering it with his poor directing. With his half-assed video game adaptations being his biggest felon, it’s no surprise that people have been panning him.

Aura’s a different story though. This time, Kishi takes a not-so interesting story and actually brings it to life with pretty read more

This gentleman in the times when he had nothing to do—as was the case for most of the year—gave himself to the reading of books of knight errantry; which he loved and enjoyed so much that he almost entirely forgot his hunting, and even the care of his estate. So odd and foolish, indeed, did he grow on this subject that he sold many acres of cornland to buy these books of chivalry to read. … [In the end], he so buried himself in his books that he spent the nights reading from twilight till daybreak and the days from dawn till dark; and so read more

Anime: Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!
Basically the same premise in both. Guy has an "imaginative" childhood, becomes ashamed of said childhood, switches schools to avoid being bullied, meets girl at new school that is currently having an "imaginative" period, guy inevitably gets mixed up in the girl's "adventures", and resolves himself to help her return to reality.

Anime: Kotonoha no Niwa
Both movies revolve around the subject of escapism, protagonists' desire of getting away from reality (although shown in completely different ways), and the hardships of those who try to help them. If you enjoyed Kotonoha no Niwa and would like to watch a bittersweet drama, try Aura.

Anime: NHK ni Youkoso!
If you're looking for anime that deal with characters and their social problems in a realistic and serious manner, then look no further. The theme of escapism permeates these works, and the characters struggle with the world and people around them. Perhaps you may even relate to some of the problems they face. Whether that is the case or not, there is still a sublime message lying in both of these great titles.
