I've watched it 2 times in japan theater and i cried both time. And i have to say that:
[spoiler]Story: it've been a while since the last time i watched an anime that could make me cry like a baby ( only 3 anime could have done this to me). Not about romantic love but the love between the mother and her children. I bet that you all will find yourself in the movie.
Art: 1 word: out standing
Music: Same as above. The last song make me feel like its a mother's lullaby.
Well... I wanna meet my mom right now. [/spoiler]

Let's start with the obvious: Yes I did give this movie a bold 10/10.

I wasn't sure how to feel about it so I watched it twice in cinemas in Japan with a one week cool-off period in between both viewing.

Honestly, the first time it simply blew me away and stayed in my head non stop for like 3-4 days. This is a heavy statement but it is indeed one of the best animated movies I've ever watched. The second watching was in order to try to find flaws and to focus a bit more on small details of the plot and the music.

I'm very lucky that my father is a movie critic as he, and by extension me, was invited to watch a early screening of the movie (also got to meet the women responsible for distributing MHA on DVD) but Its amazing. I cried. My dad (the most stoic person I know) cried his eyes out. All I can say is that it was outstanding. It's a bittersweet masterpiece about motherhood. The art is fantastic and while the story isn't the focus its still very good. The characters however. Brilliant. I still feel like crying 2 hours after its finished. They feel real. Too real for read more

To start, I watched this in theaters in Japan.

The art for this series is fantastic. Backgrounds, buildings, and landscapes are all works of art. The characters, on the other hand, are not so great. I hope they improve them for the Blu-ray release.

The voice acting was pretty good, but there were a couple places that had me wondering how it passed pre-screening.

The story starts out kinda slow, kinda jumps to a bit of action, then slows again. There is a lot of character growth, and you do get attached to them.

Finally, this movie is an emotional rollercoaster. I usually don’t cry in movies, but this read more
