I absolutely LOVED the movie >_<
The pace of the movie was just right with the plot.
Animation wise, it was superb. The details for the effects were very impressive.
The ending song was also amazing. Best song heard from AquaTimes (but I only heard 3 so far =P)
I love this anime so much, I'm gonna start reading the manga & playing the game =D

This movie is quite special. Like many other Anime, movies in particular; there is a certain style and idea behind every scene and occurrence. Which obviously also applies to this movie. However, unlike many other Anime movies; it's so darn cute and cuddly. The movie isn't girly; and it has a few occurrences in between that aren't considered cute at all; but tend more towards sad.

But still, I can't help but say this movie was a cute one. A young boy striving forward. While not particularly being talented or smart; rather much more average. He goes into a different world to there fulfill his wish.

Brave Story: an adaptation from Miyuki Miyabi's novel of the same name, is a film that any kid under 10 would really enjoy. I say this due to that my 4 year old son and 2 of my nephews(also under 10) have made it their favorite movie. When I asked why they liked it, their answer was; "because it looked cool!"

Now I haven't played the games nor have I bought any of the franchise(apart from this DVD) which all stem from the novel, yet after finishing the film I knew that a lot of the script were cut from the original adaptation, making what could read more

I give it a full score!! Indeed a very splendid anime movie I could day. It cover a little bit about the urge for someone to achieve something. It's just like when there's a will, theres a way. You would found it movie interesting if you like imagination, fantasy thingy.

The story is also touching, but would not probably make your tears come out I suppose. I would recommend this to everyone. You'll found it worthy giving this a try.
