Canary tells a pretty simple slice-of-life story about a band trying to get back together and make it to the upcoming festival concert. It's not a very complex tale, but despite that, it's a bit hard to follow at points. However, some of the scenes are presented pretty decently, and it has some alright moments here and there.

The real problem I have with it are the characters, though... as they're just entirely bland and uninteresting. It makes it difficult to care about the story at all, especially one as simple as we have here.

The animation is passable, but it's bogged down by the crummy read more
