Following her grandfather's recent death, Hamaji Ooyama lives out her days on an isolated mountain hunting for food and caring for herself. One day, Hamaji's brother, an aspiring samurai living in Edo, sends her an invitational letter to end her solitary life and join him in the city. When she arrives, however, she is met with a grisly sight—the heads of six dogs displayed for all to see. These heads belong to the Fuse, a group of eight human-dog hybrids that have been terrorizing the people of Edo.

Hamaji assists a strange man escape a group of assailants and makes it to her brother's house, where he asks that she help him collect the heads of the remaining two Fuse, as well as the Shogunate-sponsored bounty. But it is easier said than done—as the Fuse can blend into human society almost seamlessly—and the kind man Hamaji had just helped showed the Fuse's telltale signs.

This movie was a very enjoyable watch, though it comes with a few (but important problems). The world building was spectacular, but the character relationships were lacking.

Story: 7/10
The premise of the story was simple and easy to follow. Though the idea of a misunderstood and feared species is not exactly original. The story is character driven and focuses on romance.

The story of about the "fuse" was nice, nothing new, but I liked it.

Art: 10/10

Mixed Feelings
This standalone movie takes some ideas from Wolf Children, some ideas from The Boy and the Beast, and puts them together into a coming-of-age love story type deal.

It wasn't the worst hour and a half of my life, but certainly not the best, either. You might want to give this a try. Then again, you might not.

It was produced by TMS Entertainment, the same studio behind Megalo Box, D.Gray-man, Baki, Dr. Stone, ReLIFE, Rent-a-Girlfriend, and ...

This is kind of a bittersweet review for me. Sweet because I loved the art and wanted to love the story. Bitter because this movie is is dreadful and not worth watching. With a premise similar to the likes of Tokyo Ghoul its unfortunate this lacks all the moral gray area. Newsflash: the Fuse ARE the bad guys, they kill and eat people's souls there's no way around it. There's a tiny mention against this in a single line at the very end but honestly, I'm not even sure I understood it correctly. This is the sort of thing that I feel HAS to have ...
