In an old mythical world, there reside spirit-like beings who oversee the natural order of the mortal realm. One of them, a young girl named Chun, has just come of age and must undergo her rite of passage by experiencing the human world for herself. While there, she gets caught in a fishing net during a storm and is rescued by a human boy.

However, the boy ends up drowning during the incident, and Chun returns to her realm full of guilt. Afterwards, she meets the Soul Keeper and decides to revive the boy in exchange for a part of her lifespan. Little does she know, meddling with the natural order of the world has severe consequences.

Da Yu Hai Tang is a story about sacrifice and redemption as Chun comes to terms with the limitations of her powers and deals with death, love, and her own emotions. She must decide if she will sacrifice everything to save the human boy or forsake her moral obligation for the order of the world.

Finally watched this movie after I lost the name a year ago and found it again last week. I got to know about it because it's a collaboration between a Chinese studio and the Korean studio that made Korra.

The art and animation are next level revolutionary. The character designs, flora and fauna, music, voices and everything visual are like endless orgasm for your eyes. You can see the Korra and Ghibli influences in it. I loved it. BUT it was a real real pity - the entire film happened too fast, it was one tragedy to another in minutes, too many characters that seemed read more

I made an account on here just to write a review for this, since no one else has! This is such a beautiful movie. In my opinion (and I know not many will agree with me but whatever), this by far surpasses any Ghibli movies, as well as Kimi no na wa. Of course there were a few things it could have done better, but honestly, everything was too superb for me to notice many flaws at all.

Art: 10/10. Literally so gorgeous. The vibrant colors and scenery were incredibly majestic and stunning, and the whole time I felt completely immersed. Not to mention, all of read more

Hi, this is a very negative review of Big Fish and Begonia.
I'm only writing this because I seem to disagree with all the other reviews, so a different point of view might be interesting to read.
Keep in mind that this is a conversation, please do not randomly get offended.
So, here is why not only did I not like Big Fish and Begonia, but this movie actually made me seriously angry :


The plot is a generic seemingly harmless come of age story about a strong girl who thinks out of the box and follows her read more

I recently watched Da Yu Hai Tang, without expecting too much from it.

It looked like an ordinary average anime, but it was surprisingly good.

At the beggining I thought it was good, I enjoyed, but then it began to be more and more interesting by the passing of the minutes.

The anime had a lot of suspense and a lot of emotional scenes.

Why I think the anime is really good?

1.Story - The story was very well made, not the usual boring story like in almost all anime, it's something different, and this is a good thing.

2.Art - The art wasn't quite a masterpiece, but it was good read more
