This is a very artistic anime, which is nice because I like anime like this. It had a very nice watercolour and canvas effect, and also has the most detailed settings you'll ever see. Add in a few hints of CG (i.e water effects) and some nice music, now the art is really alive.
But after saying all that, I did TBO find it a bit boring. It's nice to scan through the canvas and search out little details or to watch mini planets float across the screen, but to just scenery for 30mins is a bit to much. It would of been fine if it had been shorter.

Overall 7/10

You definitely have to be in the right mood to watch this. It's really slow paced, but the artwork is amazing.

Don't watch this low quality, or I doubt it will be worth it as the art is the main focus of this. I was watching the 1080p version, and it was visually stunning.

Same here. ThorA release ftw.
I kinda liked it. This fantasy world was so beautiful and calming.
But it became a bit boring after a few minutes. 30 minutes might be a bit too long for something like that.

I hate, hate, utterly despise "chill", calm things, so there is never a time I will be in the right mood for something like this. That being said, it is still obviously absurdly stunning, and I could not help but chuckle at the "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" that they carried for like a minute straight about 21:00 in.
Elsewhere, a somewhat startled Warren Worthington III finds that he has accidentally wandered into an electrified east-side world of post-twist teens and watsui-ing teeny-boppers...

And that's all. If someone wants to see 30 minutes of slide-show with thematically related beautiful pictures, then here you go. But I don't think it's worth your time. 6/10.

Studio Ghibli makes a screen saver, and it's still better than Gedo Senki.

The CG was gross, and 30 minutes is indeed kind of much for looking at art that I could at least have my own choice of music for viewing with. 1080p=the only thing making this worth it.

This was a big feast for my eyes, but that was about it. ^^

This is something you play in the background while you read a book, which is just what I did and it suited that purpose wonderfully.

If you're looking for story, this is far off the mark. But for what this anime was trying to achieve, I think it is wonderful.

It definitely is too long.

Soothing, beautiful and surreal!

Beautiful and well detailed watercolor painting like background. I know the whole point was to depict the setting, but it's not really fitting in a video format when there's no plot, just scenery porn. Also it felt like an overdose of scenery porn at some points, I agree that 30 minutes is too long.

I really enjoyed this. It was a bit long though, but as I was in the right mood it was perfect. Also I wish to see it every night before I fall asleep. I'm sure to have interesting dreams then :)

This very much reminded me of Spirited Away, the whole "whisked off to a magical place on a railcar" experience. I was pleased to see it was Ghibli who produced it. :>

It is really awesome if you have right mood i think. Such a slow meditating sequence of animated pictures. But i found music a little bit aggressive in the end, so 9/10 :)

Quite literally a painting coming to life.

I liked it. Would also make for a nice screensaver if I ever used one.

I think enjoying this anime simply depends on person and his/her current mood. If somebody had a bad day and is angry or sad, then he/she should watch it. It's difficult to rate Iblard objectively.
