As someone who hasn't watched the first movie, and in fact didn't know there was a second movie (jee, thanks Netflix! ), I have to say I enjoyed this movie plenty! The art is great and the movie is complete enough to be a stand-on.
8/10 would recommend! Just try to watch the first movie first even though it's not necessary.
Having said that, WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD:
HOLY SH- Without context of the first one I KEPT getting tricked by this movie! In the first 1/3 of the movie I shipped no-name guy with Verta just because I thought that what Verta was meant to do was understand her sister's will. Blanca loved a weak guy for his heart, and Verta resented this because her sister kept getting hurt. So when Simon appeared I was like: Yep, this is the plot isn't it? Cause you know, Simon: strong, kinda bad guy. And No-name guy: weak but sweet, heroic guy. Predictable enough?
However I was wrong, the more time it passed the more I was convinced that no-name guy was Blanca and I needed to stop the shipping boat, BUT THEN UNO REVERSE Again.
Suddenly no-name guy 'isn't' Blanca and is just wearing a mask.
BUT OH NO, In the end HE IS BLANCA'S REINCARNATION.
BRO WHY ARE YOU PLAYING WITH ME LIKE THAT. Why can't I ever predict Chinese movies? ( Disney is seriously way too predictive. Kudos to you, movie).
Anyways, the story was really touching because both sisters just wanted to find each other! :')
8/10 would recommend! Just try to watch the first movie first because it'll provide some context and avoid some confusion.
