Long ago, in the "age of fairy tales," the world's light is protected by seven individuals who reside in Daybreak Town and wield unique weapons called "Keyblades": the Master of Masters and his six apprentices. A devastating conflict has been foreseen, and the world's end is imminent. In order to heal it, the Master of Masters gives his disciples unique roles and instructs them to form Unions comprised of other Keyblade wielders. Soon afterwards, the Master vanishes.

There's no review for this movie? Why you might ask, well maybe because you as a Kingdom Hearts fan, and I especially, was not expecting this to even be on MAL.

But well lets dive in.

You won't probably like this if you're not a Kingdom Hearts fan. Even if you're just a casual Kingdom Hearts fan, you probably won't find this as interesting until more installments come out for the series. It just doesn't hold a large amount of substance to it.

Essentially a string of cutscenes that are rendered in real time. The direction is shit, characters just keep meeting in the same 1 or 2 locations, with a static camera angle. Vocal performances are sad. No real fights to speak of, characters make incredibly stupid decisions, and the story doesn't actually provide any meaningful context to the kingdom hearts universe.

Honestly don't wast your time with it, just read a summary on a wiki if you want to know what ...

So if anyone played KHUx on your mobile phone this is one of the half of the game, ...
