Synopsis

Your favourite teddy bear. That model kit that took so long to complete. The picture book you used to read over and over again. The shining stone you found that day in the park. Where do all your childhood's treasures go when you grow up? In this story, we meet fantastic creatures that gather all these little objects that fall into oblivion as they are forgotten by their owners when they step into adulthood. These creatures sneak into our world from a different dimension, and unseen by humans, they take all the ditched and forgotten "treasures" into their world. Here, they use their booty to build their own city, a fairy tale-like place called... Oblivion Island!

Anime, like many other media, is a veritable Pandora's Box when it comes to finding something entertaining. What you think about a given show may range from outright loathing to blissful wonderment - you never know until you start watching.

Every so often though, something will come along that will give you hope for the future of the medium.

For starters, Hottarake no Shima ~Haruka to Mahou no Kagami~ (or, Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror), is possibly the most visually arresting 3D movie I have ever seen (and before you ask, yes, I have seen Avatar, and no, I wasn't overly impressed by that Dances read more

Oblivion Island is a movie that pops a question in my mind after I saw this movie; Why can't we get original and creative films like this on Hollywood? Well that's because nowadays, Hollywood is nothing more than a bunch of lazy dumbfucks that rather make garbage for the audience, while original movies get the middle finger by the audiences and they don't ever get mentioned again for generations to come. Oblivion Island gives hope that originality in filmmaking isn't dead and Production I.G has created a film filled with so much wonder and creativity that it deserves to be seen by the whole world read more

Both are stories where a young girl is transported into a visually-stunning magical fantasy world and has to overcome various challenges before returning to the real world. Both reference youkai and folklore, where the main character must befriend and interact with them.
