I was interested in this movie since I am a Tibetan myself, so I watched it with my family yesterday.

Story: 7/10
Nothing really new, just the same tale of a lad meeting a dog that changes his life. It was interesting that there was a "devil" killing many people though

Art: 8/10
The art style reminds me of a Ghibli film. It's charming and approachable. I also really think the landscapes were especially well designed

Sound: 6/10
It was alright. Had some traditional Tibetan music but nothing really else. The VA's were decent

Character: 6/10
The characters were decent as well.

Enjoyment: 8/10
It was fun seeing all the Tibetan cultural references. My read more

A new take on the classic "boy and dog" relationship. This is a must see for any animal lover or for anyone looking for a beautiful story. If you're not already, you'll fall in love with the Tibetan Mastiff.

For anime the setting is original as takes place in the mountains of Tibet. The PLOT is engaging as it follows a young boy who moves to the Tibetan countryside following the death of his mother. As he struggles to fit in to his new way of life and the relationship with his father he befriends a mountain dog. ART, The landscapes of Tibet are beautifully read more

Story takes place in Tibet, where we follow the young boy Tenzin who is going to live with his dad in a shepherd village. The sound was pretty decent, nothing to special in my opinion.

Now onto the story, overall it was a pretty realistic story, we got a bond between a dog and Tenzin. Halfway through the movie the realism slowly fades away as the big evil appears, without having any purpose for being evil. The setup for certain things were great, such as showing the strained relation between Tenzin and his dad, but we never delved much into these as they are either read more

Tibet Inu Monogatari is a Madhouse film from 2011. Yes, Madhouse. The studio that can make things as good as Rainbow and Monster but also things as rubbish as anime X-men or Highschool of the Dead. I never know what to expect from them just because their quality does vary so greatly that I can honestly say they've made some of the best and some of the worst anime I've ever seen. 

Story:

Our narrative opens with a youngster named Tianjin being moved up to the mountains of Tibet as his mother just passed and that's where his father is. He quickly forms a bond with a golden-furred read more
