Hakubo revolves around the daily life of Sachi Koyama, a high school violinist with promising talent. Although Sachi is content with her school life and retains friends within the music club, her favorite pastime is appreciating the scenery around her neighborhood in Iwaki, Fukushima while walking to her bus stop alone.

However, during one of Sachi's after-school walks, she has an unexpected meeting with Yuusuke Kijinami, a boy whom she often notices on her bus ride home. After offering to help Kijinami find a perfect view of the evening landscape—the subject of his next painting for his art club's exhibition—the two forge a bond over their mutual admiration of the beautiful scenery bathed in sunset. This chance encounter brings together these two souls who yearn to cherish the present, knowing full well how easily it can all slip away.

Hakubo is the final installment in Yutaka Yamamoto's Tohoku Trilogy, a series of films produced to aid in the restoration efforts following the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. The charity project was intended to be crowd-funded, but the campaign did not raise the funds it was aiming for.

It isn't a great movie BUT IT IS A GOOD ONE. I recommend this movie if you want some Romance Movie without Heavy Plot and just wanted to relax.

For the story, it doesn't have great twist/mind-boggling/mind-blowing plot. It does have a simple plot but don't get me wrong here, the movie become great (atleast for me) because of that.

For the graphics, it is not that far (again,atleast for me) from well-known animes such as Makoto's work.

Hakubo Review (5.4)

About music and love,but they didn't meet my expectations in the story. The animation is not very good, but it's ok.There seems to be something missing that I didn't see in the story.The song is good anyway.

The story isn't very interesting,it's a bit boring and I thought it was just about the music on her violin and there's also a love story which is quite ok.

The background is beautiful,it looks like they just took a real pic then they edited it so it's not too obvious.But when it comes to the animation it's not good but it's pretty ok.

This was the biggest load of barnacles I have ever seen. The promotional video looked promising, with excellent visuals and what could have been a decent plot, and gave me high hopes that this short-ish film will be worth my time. After watching it, it’s confirmed that nothing about this movie was good except the gorgeous animation.

And when I say gorgeous animation, I mean the backgrounds and the scenery. The character designs were pretty mediocre and looked like they came straight out of 2010. Even worse than their designs, however, were the characters themselves. They possessed totally unbelievable character traits that no real human ...
