Warning: This review is purely personal and probably won't match with yours.
At first, I'll try to be "objective". The film is mainly for kids, although I think it can also be fun for adults. I think most people wouldn't find it boring, knowing what you're about to watch.
The characters are something that existed before the film (from gachas in Japan), so not much to say here. If you haven't ever seen them before and don't find them adorable, then this film is not made for you.
The music and sound was great, loved the songs on the special moments.
The art design is very simplistic, which is
understandable since it's what the character designs rely on, plus it makes the art cuter.
The story was actually interesting, very simple of course since it's made for kids, but still interesting.
Now, on my personal opinion. I have a very special attachment to these characters for personal reasons, and I was not expecting this outcome at all. I thought it would be just fun to watch, maybe even boring and drop it after a few minutes in. I couldn't be more wrong.
This film gave me some of the purest feelings I've ever experienced. It will sound sad to say this, but I'm on my mid-twenties, and these feelings haven't crossed my life for a long time. It made me remember those feelings of pure and innocent joy, happiness and sadness. I had to hold myself from crying three times, however on the last one, when the credits rolled, it was too much, too many emotions I am not used to control. It wasn't sadness, it was simply an overflow of emotions, pure emotions.
And for that, I now have even more attachment to them, even though I am fully aware that this was just a long promotion for their product. I can already tell I will remember this film for ever, and when that happens for a good reason, it means it has been an excellent film.
