When one looks back one the history of anime in the West, it's easy to see the progression from the initial "cartoons are for kids" perception to it's current position as a viable storytelling medium. It's only natural then that both anime and manga have begun to creep in to our everyday lives, from modern "cartoons" for children, to games, advertising, even quiz show questions. The influence of anime and manga is literally all around us, every day. However, like anything in life, both anime and manga are also susceptible to influences as well, and Miyori no Mori is one of the few titles that read more

It is an amazing story about a girl named Miyori and the forest she becomes involved with. The story takes place in a countryside village and the forest right next to it. And throughout the story, Miyori matures quite a lot as she realizes that she is not alone at all.
The soundtrack is enthralling and suits there really well. It drags you even deeper into the story and makes it more believable.
The animation is also a success and all the environments are really beautiful. Each character is very unique.
I enjoyed every last second of this anime. It is touching and gives a good feeling.

Miyori no Mori is a rather straight forward story about a girl accepting her place in the world and saving the forest she's grown to love. There's a strong environmental message that reminds me of Ghibli films like Pom Poko and Mononoke Hime. While the spirits and demons bring to mind things like Tonari no Totoro or Natsume Yuujinchou. It really succeeds with its' imagery - classic scenes of thatched houses or dragons or witches are used to evoke a nostalgia and wonder.

In short, if you enjoy Ghibli films or relaxing stories about demons and spirits in Japan, than you'll like this film. The read more

Miyori no Mori is a tale about a girl trying to explore the countryside after being sent there by her parents. The anime focuses on her adapting to new life and developing into a better person.

Talking about the plot it was pretty simple and average with nothing really out of ordinary. I don't think there is a point in talking about plot speed as it's a single special episode movie. As the movie was developed by Nippon Animations it surely has that nostalgic art that makes you keep watching it but this time there was a bit of a problem with the design of read more
