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.

I will try my best to keep this spoiler free ^^. As you may already be able to tell from my score. I really enjoyed this film. Being a new wave of 'Chinese' produced anime, from studios, I have never heard of. This film was a very fun and interesting watch, I found myself watching this weeks before my exam, in need of procrastination (not a good thing). Only to be left astounded with the breathtaking animation-at times. And the beautifully composed characters and story plot. Overall I will be splitting this review into 5 sections, for simplicity's sake.

One - Story. This story was read more

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.

Story (no spoilers): 7/10

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 read more

The movie has some incredible animation and breathtaking backgrounds, but is wildly inconsistent. Not that any of it is terrible, but some parts clearly stood out as rushed or with janky cgi character movements. Other scenes are quite striking, with fluid animation that adeptly conveys both action, and more subtle body language. In fact, one of the film’s greatest strengths is the animation’s ability to capture the personality of the characters in each scene, whether it’s the rebelliousness abandonment of Qi Jingxuan, or Yao Zhe Tian’s quiet desperation to find purpose and break free from her overly structured life. Even side characters like the teacher, read more
