Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai (I Want to Eat Your Pancreas) is predictable, heavy-handed, unoriginal, and, yet, I still love this film. I do not love the movie in any sort of guilty-pleasure way either; I unironically think Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai is one of the best anime films I have ever seen. Why, though? Well, the film uses its predictability, heavy-handedness, and unoriginality to craft a message that is so unbelievably powerful, and it struck a chord with me and left my emotions in absolute, complete shambles. I honestly doubt most people could misinterpret the themes of Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai, so read more

Say what you want about this movie being generic or being acclaimed only because it is a “tearjerker”, but I don’t care. I loved this movie, and I cried my eyes out. The reason people love tearjerkers is because people want to be moved. We want to experience something that will truly take us away from our lives and make us feel something so strong that we are moved to tears. This movie did just that. In an effort to avoid spoiling anything for anyone, I won’t write about the climax and ending, but it was unexpected. That said, I couldn’t imagine it ending any read more

[Spoiler Warning]

'I Want to Eat Your Pancreas' is a common drama production to this industry. It offers generic school settings with rather superficial teenage characters. The only thing it tries to accomplish is toy with its viewers' emotions to the point of some cheap tearjerking. Those who are okay with this will most definitely see how the movie accomplishes exactly all the thing it wants to. Those who want something more from anime, should look elsewhere.

This movie is a story about death. It starts when the most perfect mary sue on the planet starts randomly talking with a no-life loser dude who happens to be read more

A lot of anime fans seem to be under the impression that as long as some sort of tragedy is featured and said tragedy happens to a cute girl, an anime automatically qualifies as “good” with its flaws being dismissed due to its label as a ‘tearjerker’ or ‘feels’ anime. Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai, or ‘I Want to Eat Your Pancreas’, is a recent addition to this label and, while falling into the same traps as many of its predecessors, the movie manages to accumulate even more flaws on its own, resulting in something that is ultimately underwhelming.

"I Want to Eat Your Pancreas" is one of the worst excuses for a movie I have ever seen!

There will be spoilers! This review goes out to people who have seen the movie. If you liked it, please note that this is my own opinion, no need to bash on me. If you disliked it then this review is for you.

This movie starts off with our main girl, who is annoying, very annoying. She has no manners, forgets about the rules of the library (basically shouts all the time and annoys readers around her), and does not respect main character's privacy. She also read more

Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai, also known by the English title "I want to eat your pancreas", is a drama anime film with tragedy. It is about an outgoing girl who has a pancreatic illness which she has not told anyone except her family that she has this illness. A boy from her class stumbles upon her diary that she left in the hospital and she comes back to fetch the diary only to realise that he read it so she ends up telling him about her illness. Due to this secret knowledge of theirs that none of their classmates know about, they start to read more

See you can make a memorable modern movie if you want too Japan! Made by a studio who nobody even heard about it "I want to eat your pancreas" is a rare gem that everyone must see! Like Frank Sinatra's song "Strangers in the Night" I too was a stranger before coming across this movie. This movie is a letter of love addressed to life who despite being short is damn gorgeous!

A strong point in this movie is how simple and enjoyable it manages to present the story for its audience. The strong willed female lead character made the story so damn enjoyable and read more

"I want to eat your pancreas" was very hard to sit through. Not because it was heartbreaking, but because it was really bland.

The story is simple, but good; it just needs to have characters we care about for the story to be good. This is where the movie completely falls apart for me.

The two main characters are very two dimensional, and only one of them is even likable: The likable one is the happy/extroverted one, the other one is the book otaku. The only good scenes are the ones where the extroverted one does things, usually by herself.
The side characters are really annoying and repetitive.

I enjoy clichéd, predictable tearjerkers as much as the next person (honestly, I do), but not like this. Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai chooses to explore how we live out our relationships with others in the face of death, and does so by presenting a questionable relationship in the first place.

— Art & Sound —
At best, the art is inconsistent, and at worst, it's fully distracting. If you want to trace my confusion at the character art as you watch, pay attention to their noses. Sometimes Sakura looks like she has no nose, and sometimes she looks normal. When facing forward, they have little dots read more

This review vaguely goes over themes discussed at later points in the film. Read with caution.

I've been forward to watching this movie ever since the adaptation was announced. Despite not having read the source material, the premise, while cliché, sounded less like a story that was larger-than-life and more like a passing, everyday one. And on a whole, the film started strong in that aspect but began to deflate upon itself when it took a down-to-earth story and made it more than it needed or was supposed to be.

The story is about a girl named Sakura who lives with the secret that she has a read more

I have never given my opinion about anything in MAL. But honestly, I had to make an exception here.

-  I want to eat your pancreas.

Impressed, amazed, fascinated and grateful. There aren't words to describe the wonderful way in which this was carried out. A story where we don't even need the name of the protagonist to feel identified; to be in his place.

You could call it one more movie. But, for me it's a masterpiece made with a lot of love and commitment. It's so real. 5 minutes is enough to focus your attention to the facts. It exposes us to a form of read more

I decided to watch this Movie in the split second that nearly made me miss the last bus that would make me arrive at the cinema on time.

From the Title you know what you are getting yourself into. even at the start of the film it starts just like Grave of the Fireflies. after it takes you back to where it began and you embark on an amazing journey that makes you Sad and happy with how Sakura handles her illness. As time goes by you immediately feel uneasy and sorry, until the credits roll and longer as a the end credit scene plays read more

What will you do if you know that you are going to die in one year? Of course, most people definitely want to live their life to the fullest, fulfilling anything they want, going to places that is impossible to go, or maybe devoting themselves to a spiritual journey in the name of God. This anime film definitely will reminded you of death that eventually come to us whether you like it or not, how you should leave your mark in this world and how it could change other person to a better one. Having the most misleading title I have ever heard, I Want read more

The main guy was awfully underdeveloped at the beginning, which made him completely unrelatable and boring . As the story progresses, he got a bit more developement and became quite a decent guy. But he is largely a very mediocre character.

The secondary characters - the "best friend" and "ex-boyfriend" - were dumb and annoying. Calling them a bitch or a dick would not be a harsh treatment. At the end of the movie, I had to ask myself if those two had any brain at all.

The plot is a recycled melodrama telling the story of a dying girl meeting a guy with the most useless read more

I've gotta say just one thing to start off with, watch this. sit down, don't get distracted, don't stop/pause it in the middle for a bathroom/popcorn/snack/smartphone break... pick some time where you WON'T be interrupted what so ever. this movie is excellent. I've no clue what the novel or it's manga is like; but as a stand alone movie this one SERIOUSLY ties my #1 choices up in knots. 'Kimi no Na wa.' WAS my singular #1 anime movie ever. but now I think I've got two.

I guess the biggest 'YES' for this movie is: Haruki is me. for over 40 years now I've read more

I recently watched this and toward the end, I felt strongly about how *bad* it got near the end and had to write my thoughts down about it. But before I begin...

Let's just get this out of the way. While I understand the meaning of "I want to eat your pancreas", why would someone ever title a story over this? Did you have NO other creative title to suit the needs of this story? How about Living with Dying, the title of the journal the main girl wrote? Was it copyrighted, and you couldn't think of something better? Was that too literal, and was too read more

"Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai" was a movie that was able to emphasize the main protagonists to be unique dynamic characters that underwent change throughout the whole movie. The movie's plot was unique and was not generic at all. "Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai" advised viewers about what it means to be "living" through focusing on Sakura's unaltering fate of death. The anime's art and sound were able to perfectly intertwine to create an enjoyable experience for viewers. Ultimately, I perfectly enjoyed the roller coaster of feels that "Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai" gave me. The movie highlighted the unchangeable fate that all living individuals read more

If I were to describe this movie in one phrase it would be normie pandering. The movie does nothing new to the genre, just your typical tearjerker that did nothing right.

The movie is full of contrivances, an example being the way the two met, the main guy just randomly finds the girl's diary and since he's a bookworm, instead of returning the diary to the lost and found, he reads it. The movie starts off with the girl's funeral, when I first saw that, my immediate thoughts were alright let's see some character building with the main dude and the girl, she's read more

Spoiler Alert!

I Want To Eat Your Pancreas is an interesting title to a frustratingly dull film. The concept is promising enough, touching on philosophical themes in an unconventional romance, all while intending (as one reviewer puts it,) “to loosen the lacrimal glands of the spectators.” Then comes the execution. Coming from someone who watched A Silent Voice through a wall of tears, this movie completely unfazed me from start to finish. It is neither compelling philosophically, romantically, or emotionally, and the burden lies entirely on paper-thin characterization.

The audience’s engagement lives or dies by the two central characters, Haruki and Sakura. We are off on a read more
