The year is 2027, and the city of Kyoto has undergone tremendous technological advancement. Within the city lives Naomi Katagaki, a socially awkward and introverted boy with a love for books, and Ruri Ichigyou, a girl with a cold personality who is often blunt with people, but shares his love for reading. Despite having similar interests, Naomi is afraid to approach Ruri due to her unfriendly nature.

One day, as Naomi goes out for a walk, a crimson aurora pierces through the sky for a brief moment before vanishing. Shortly after, he sees a three-legged crow and a mysterious hooded man who reveals himself to be Naomi from 10 years in the future, explaining that he has come to change an imminent tragic event that happens to Ruri shortly after they start dating. Initially taking his words with a grain of salt, present-day Naomi follows his future self's instructions and starts getting closer to Ruri, determined to save her.

Hello World focuses on the present Naomi alongside himself from 10 years into the future. With the help of his future self, Naomi begins his preparations to save Ruri. Will he be able to change the future?

"I just wanted to see her smile again."

Well, well. What have I got to say... That was some pretty good words coming from a guy who has spent so much time trying to get her to wake up again. This Sci-Fi romance film was something I wouldn't have expected to be extraordinary, I kind of kept my hopes down for the entire film. But after watching the movie, it felt... decent? good? I was confused at that point. However, what I CAN say is that the romance was implied pretty strongly on the main character. Spending 10 years to save a girl you literally ...

Mixed Feelings
I was going to hold this review back, but upon seeing what made it to the forefront of the reviews, I thought some differing opinions could spark conversation.
TL;DR Score: 5 - First half good second half bad.
Incidentally, you watch Another World AFTER this movie.
Most of the problems stem from the flawed and convoluted story. To put it simply, it's split into 2 parts. The first part is a fairly pleasant romance drama. The second part is mostly an action flick with scifi themes. I also don't mean that there are 2 stories, rather that the 1 story really shifts gears halfway through ...

Been invited to watch this-- advanced special screening in PH. Oct 28.

It's definitely 100% CG but it's not a bad cg. It's a very well made cg, consistent, trippy -- there's so many "inception-ish" going on and I understand why they made the whole thing in cg.

- The characters are likeable like they are straight outta tamako market
- The sound design is outstanding 10/10
- Story is interesting, some parts are cliche but the plot twist is a bruh moment
- art is.. its ajin on steroids

Im gonna rewatch it again when it airs here on the 30th.
PS: I enjoyed this more ...
