Eh, it was decent. Kind of disappointing though from all the people recommending it. I was expecting more, but it's not like it was bad or anything.


Yeah I remember being all hyped about watching this due to all the acclaim. I ended up being thoroughly disappointed. >:(

It was too... corny for me, for lack of a better word.

Loved it. Didn't betray my expectation. Watching Summer Wars in Summer was very good decision, I guess. ^^ Very memorable. So many things to discuss, but I'll let them be in my blog post.

It wasn't a bad movie, but a tad overhyped in my opinion. My expectations were way too high because of all the acclaim.
Natsuki's voice was a bit weird and it took me some time before I got used to it. Also, why didn't they just shut down OZ's servers? If an AI is going on a rampage in OZ, they should've just shut everything down and that satellite would never have been a danger to anyone. Where were all the game's admins? And wasn't that AI programmed to just gather knowledge in the first place?

I can't choose between 8 or 9 for this anime, but since this could be because of the disappointment, I think I'll put 8 for this first watch and see how it holds up next time.

It's was a good movie, not mind-blowing or anything but the execution was nice and it's something nice to watch on downtime. They did a nice job of with making the family seem all lively and believable. 8/10 stuff.

I didn't even see the Digimon movie everyone reference it too and still got Digimon vibes from it, haha.

I really preferred whole "awkward family tension" theme that the movie had going for it when Grandma was alive. When it started to get more into cyber wars, while impressive to watch (one of the most epic card game match ever), most of the soul of the movie was gone for me. You could say the movie died a little when Grandma kicked the bucket...

Anyways I really got irritated by the Kenji in the end, cmon guy you save the frickin world stop nosebleeding and blushing so much. Meh despite that I thought Kenji was too good for Natsuki anyways, she used him for most of the movie and even ignored him when Uncle came around who she preferred anyways at the beginning.

She didn't really like him until he played that big part in saving the world and then saving Natsuki's household, of course you gonna think highly of someone who saved the world. Kenji deserves better but Natsuki was his old crush so hooray for him I guess, he got what he wanted. That whole confession scene in the end was lame.

Really amazing movie!! It has a brilliant story plot. The Grandma was really funny, i mean; SHE IS CRAZY! Like really... Though she died. lol
Koi-koi game looks boring, guess I'll never try that in my life, if someone try to teach me how then why not? Kenji, is awesome. Figuring something out in head is crazy >.>
>dat family

Really coolish movie 10/10

This doesn't play on traditional values in a way you might think. Instead, it mixes them with modern day lifestyle and serves them together with creatively animated koi-koi action. Made me a koi-koi fan, it did.

I had trouble taking this film seriously. As a person a few posts above noted, if this happened in real life, the servers would be simply shut down and voila, problem fixed.

It wasn't a bad film but it wasn't ANYWHERE near as good as Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo.

Wow. I loved the film. I saw it on TV, and I was very impressed. The animation for OZ is gorgeous and very well-done, and I liked the human character designs.

I liked the family parts more than I thought I would, and the fight scenes, when they happened, were very good. The ending kept me at the end of my seat, and the part where the Grandma dies was very sad. Truly an amazing film.

Although very well done in it's own right, Summer Wars is basically War Games, a live action movie from the early 80s (starring Matthew Broderick & Ally Sheedy):

Kenji & Natsuki = David & Jennifer
Wabisaki = Falken
Love Machine/OZ = Joshua/WOPR
Threat of WWIII via distruction of nuclear reactors = Threat of WWIII via "Global Thermonuclear War"
Hanafuda = Tic Tac Toe

I'm not being critical. As I said, Summer Wars was well done; it's just not all that original. I also have the feeling that a large percentage of Summer Wars' viewers weren't even glints in their daddies' eyes back in '83, the year War Games was released.

I really enjoyed this movie! I thought it was well done! OZ kind of reminded me of Facebook, the way so many people are connected, not the entire world or governments, but still.

AMAZING MOVIE!!!! I just watched it and I was blew away by how well it was done, and how entertaining it was. Definitely a 10/10 for me. I loved it so much, this is the kind of movie I could watch over and over again and never get tired of.

Reminds me of that Digimon movie I watched when I was a kid with that cheesy final battle.
