In the late 90's, in China, Tu Xiaoyi, an high school student, takes no interest in marks and prefers to play video games with his friend nicknamed "Peanut." One day, he was chosen by his teacher to become the class representative with Yao Zhetian, a very cute girl. He will experience his first love and disappointments.


Manhua artist Pocket Chocolate began production of a full-length animation film adaptation of his work Zuori Qing Kong (published outside China as Crystal Sky of Yesterday) in July 2015, after seeking feedback on a sample pilot adaptation. The film's target audience is viewers born in the 1980s and 1990s. In order to prepare for production, the animation team spent time studying the Lanxi cityscape, including finding textbooks, school desks, and bicycles used in the film's time period.

One - Story. This story was ...

Disclaimer: I am not Chinese, nor am I very familiar with the culture, so there were undoubtedly some subtle cultural things I missed while watching this film.

Overall: 7/10
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I decided I wanted to find some Chinese anime to watch to learn more about the culture and language. I rated this movie a 7, but that's still a massive compliment compared to most other Chinese shows I've seen. It's overall pretty good and wouldn't be out of place as a Japanese anime movie, aside from the language obviously.

The story really hits you in the gut, you'll like it, especially if you're into movies like A Silent Voice. It's not like other romances I've seen, this one takes a different approach to adolescence that I haven't seen before.

It was a shame the subs I used didn't fully represent the story. It wasn't just that the english wasn't great, but many times they completely mistranslated what was said, or left out details that would've added so much more depth and understanding. Also they didn't bother translating the songs, which are pretty good.


The animation's pretty high quality. There were some moments with slightly bad ...
