Luo Xiaohei is a young monster who normally takes the form of a small black cat. Living freely in the forests, gradual deforestation and human development force him to flee and find a new home. Wandering the city streets, the black cat struggles to survive until he encounters Feng Xi, a fellow monster who takes Xiaohei to an isolated island inhabited by a small group of monsters. Excited to find what he thinks is his new home, Xiaohei lives with the monsters for only a short time before Wuxian, a human Guild Executor, arrives on the island in pursuit of Feng Xi.

Feng Xi and his companions manage to teleport off the island, leaving Xiaohei and Wuxian alone. Though Xiaohei refuses to cooperate with the man who attacked his friends, Wuxian forces the black cat to travel to the Guild along with him. Embarking on an uncertain journey, Xiaohei is exposed to a new perspective on the relations between humans and monsters in a rapidly changing world.

Absolutely amazing animation! I think now it’s one of my personal favorites! Story isn’t that unique here but it’s the way that it’s done makes up for it well. The art style itself may be a bit basic but Animation is outstanding and cinematic. One particular thing that stood out to me was the timing and realistic character reacting in this film, there’s no lagging anime cliches to be seen here.

Characters are all pretty much lovable, even the side characters. It feels like they all have their own stories and like they’re not just there to fill up space. Highly, highly recommend!

This movie is a prime example of what anime should be like. Exceptional character development, the animation is astounding, it's simple yet so crisp. The story line is so nice. I actually enjoyed every second of the movie. Would highly recommend for everyone.

And here I am writing out my disappointment about mal actually telling me that I have to write a how long review they want. Without any spoilers or story summaries. Even though there are so many reviews already. I have bought up the subject already in the suggestions @ mal so if u agree, help me make it shorter.

A gorgeous, adorable, sweet, fun film.

The story is heart-wrenching and funny. Perhaps the only issues it has is that things are kept overly vague for the entire story. You can imply what the mysterious organization does, but it's probably not a full picture, and the story doesn't attempt to clear things up, giving the audience obscure hints and teases like they have more to show without making good on the promise. I guess it helps build up this sense that Hei is rightfully conflicted, and the characters demonstrate through actions rather than overarching dogma which is the side to choose, but it still leaves read more

Quick Thoughts:
Much like the main series, the main appeal I got of this movie was its art and animation. Between its more well-defined characters, rich backgrounds, and smooth animation, it's a very noticeable improvement visually. That's about it though, the story hardly made sense to me. It's supposedly a prequel to the web-series, but I had a hard time this movie is even related.

I think the story was supposed to show us how Xiaohei gets over his hate of humans. It starts with him displaced from his home in the forest by humans, and shortly after he meets another group of spirits with similar circumstances. read more
