The rigorous city life of China, while bustling and unforgiving, contains the everlasting memories of days past. Three stories told in three different cities, Shikioriori follows the loss of youth and the daunting realization of adulthood.

Though reality may seem ever changing, unchangeable are the short-lived moments of one's childhood days. A plentiful bowl of noodles, the beauty of family and the trials of first love endure the inevitable flow of time, as three different characters explore the strength of bonds and the warmth of cherished memories. Within the disorder of the present world, witness these quaint stories recognize the comfort of the past, and attempt to revive the neglected flavors of youth.

The tripartite anthology "Shikioriori", is deeply ingrained in Chinese culture and recent Chinese history, in particular that of China's rapid economic development during the 1990s, so it pains me to read so many reviews that seem to exhibit no awareness and no understanding of the cultural context and demographic to which this film targets.

1) Sunny Breakfast

For non-Chinese people, or those who have not grown up in Chinese-influenced societies like much of South East Asia, you may not know that food is widely recognised as the most important part of Chinese culture. That Chinese people often greet each other with "Have you eaten" and that Chinese read more

With the release of any film as popular and profitable as 2016's Your Name, there will inevitably be cheap imitators shamelessly riding its coattails. What separates Shikioriori from your average rip-off is that it was actually co-produced by CoMix Wave Films, the studio that worked on Your Name. We had a reason to expect quality from this movie, it was even advertised as "from the creators of Your Name". However, the director of that movie Makoto Shinkai had NO involvement in Shikioriori whatsoever. This movie is just another low effort cash grab.

Shikioriori imitates Shinkai’s stories about long distance relationships, it borrows many of his storyboards, read more

This is going to be my first review! (LIGHT SPOILERS)

Story: 7
This movie is an anthology that is composed of 3 stories. I'll briefly comment about it one by one.
"A Sunny Breakfast" 6/10
it comes off as an introduction story of an adult lingering the remnants of youth. The story doesn't really progress instead it comes off poetic and nostalgic. But that's just it.
"A Little fashion show". 8/10
A story about two sisters with different careers that separates them from living a kind of lifestyle yet they share the same roof. It's pretty decent to look at it as a whole but somehow it lacked read more

As I was sitting down and scrolling through kissanime new anime additions something caught my eye, like a a really pretty bowl of noodles in a fish shop. That would obviously be this movie. Obviously.

Throughout watching the first part of the movie there was a lot of thoughts swirling in my mind. Why is there only narration? Why does this sink look better then the entire movie? Why aren't there more noodles? To many questions were going through my mind. One minute the dude is eating noodles and looking at this pretty girl next second were at his grandma's death bed and I'm like read more
