This Story is as bright as the star that the main character Ray is. It's a Folklore Tale that's cute and endearing to say the least. Teaching us to be kind and selfless
I find it was very interesting, kept me engaged and wanting to see what was going to happen next, tho i do have to say at some parts felt a bit rushed and I feel like the mermaid is presented as a bigger character than she actually is. It was very very cute and put across a very good message to it, which is to be kind to others.
I think it
was pretty decent, ocean scenes were lovely, colors were nice and real feel to it.
Music was very cute, set the tone for each scene and made sure you knew that this was a historical Anime.
By god the main character Ray was such a lovely and selfless person, even tho it was a period piece he still stood out just with that alone. The mermaid was very cute, but her design was a typical mermaid. not saying her design was bad or anything tho. Villagers and other side characters each had their own quirks to at least make it so they stood out from the background.
Favorite Character: Has to be the Main character Ray hands down.
Least Favorite Character: It's a toss up between the Samurai idiots and The King/Lord, both seem unpleasant.
I really liked it, but i feel like that has everything to do with the main character. Ray is just so likable that you want to see what selfless act he will do next, and where his life is headed. "Cute and Endearing" is literally all i can describe this movie as.
Re-watch Value: I'm not too sure if I would re-watch it or not, so I'll just say Maybe.
I feel like if you looking for something cute to watch than you should give it a watch, might not be to everyone's tastes tho, specially if you don't like historical Anime's but give it a try anyways.
Side note: Sorry to people who like Subbed only, when I googled this i could only find it Dubbed.
