A pretty good movie, by no means it was terrible nor excellent, the story was still decent. Would have gave this a lower rating if the ending wasn't well done but I'm satisfied. One issue though, this movie seems to have some pacing issues, if it had been a little longer, it would have turned out much better.

The transition from the SoL moments to the fight scenes were too abrupt and the conflict kinda ended too early, which kinda is a pity.

Yeah, pretty much. They just threw that last scene in for people who want that kind of interpretation I guess, which is nice.

Funnily enough I actually watched it in the theater that was featured in the movie itself.. was not expecting that and neither was the audience.

Same here! LOL

Was caught out of surprise but it was a nice surprise.

But yea, the last scene was pretty done well.

I like this show. Usually i don't like 3DCG animation, but this one is different for me. The plot is good. It's sad, yet happy ending.

In the movie format it felt a little rushed and it needed a 12 episode series to have the necessary time to shine. Although i understand that when it comes to CG, people would have trashed it in no time.
Anyway, overall it was fine.

This show must be added Action, Fantasy, and Mecha genres because they

This show shall be great if only they add more touching scenes to the romance and make the movement of the character dont be too rough to seen. I mean look at the hug moment between Kotori and Shin, awful. And for the end, the revival scene must be good to delete, because its no relevant and can be called as an asspull by me. Then, to the Riko and Miko, where they are? Again, no explanations. Hell, so must shit goin on to the story really make me mad. Fortunately, their animations and art for the actions so amazing which is only the strongest part of this whole movie.

I'm surprised this got subbed. I watched it raw because there weren't any back when I watch it.

I picked this up after watching Hello World so it didn't appeal much.

ok what in the world was this lol? Have to admit the initial premise that the Kotoko in the other world was responsible for the deaths of Shin's parents and leading to his depression could've created an interesting dynamic, with Shin's conflicting feelings towards Kotako (cause on one hand, the Kotoko in his world is a different one but at the same time she's technically responsible for the death of his parents). But what I didn't expect was Kotoko to literally die lmao, was actually quite surprised. But ofc they had to make her turn out to be a good guy all along and was only being used by the council

The 2nd half was just wtf was even going on, I don't even know anymore. Ending was alright I guess, but how did we end up back with the confession scene?

I also found it funny how the 2 date/gatherings were literally copy-pastes of each other, even both ending with that interrupted confession scene.

Animation wasn't too bad, some of the character animations actually felt pretty natural.

Overall 4/10, could've done bits but ended up being a waste.

Also @Cloudy and co. yall need to fix the VA's for the characters lmao, Jin is not voiced by Kaji Yuuki (instead by Yoshiki Nakajima), other world Kotoko is not voiced by Uchida Maaya (instead by Sayaka Senbongi)

edit: nvr mind that's only for the ONA :P

I watched this yesterday. The anime is good and entertaining. The only thing I did not like is the CGI

its good but the cgi is isnt that good compare to hello world. overall good its nice anime but some situations didnt explain well and the romance is bit force...
"Where ever you are in this world. I will always going to find you.."

"Who cares if we can't see any sunshine, I want you more than any Blue Sky.."

"I hope you'll remember me, even just a little bit.."

"Even if the world is destroyed, I still want to see your smile again.."

"I'm the one who lived my life just to meet you, just like cherry blossoms waiting for the spring.."

Craftar Studio, and this means a fully 3D CGI landscape. Still too fluid to make headwaves though.

And if you'd ask me that this is an alternative version to Soutai Sekai (same world, different settings), I wouldn't even have known but a few tidbits that draw parallels.

The relationship between Shin and Kotori (as much as the cliche OTP) felt very forced, as is their fate that draws down to the parallel world setting, not to mention their protectors from another world...even if it means plot conveniences to suit and match.

And man, I was surprised that Kotori died, because she's a vessel of the alternate world and nothing more (if you wanna call the childhood friend troupe one).

Whiel the 1st half was pretty linear and easy to predict, the 2nd half...was a dissemination of ideas that are "supposed to link and make sense" but in all instances, a mish-mesh of whack that became another Ingress the Animation (from the same studio).

At least it went out with a decent ending.

BOY am I SO glad this was a feature movie, not a TV series, because it would've failed outright (even if there wasn't 3DCG to begin with). It's not good, but pretty average if on a mediocre level. Good watch, but a one-time shot only.

Would've benefitted from a Netflix release (since it likes 3DCG animation THAT much).

This movie is beyond my expectation. The cover is really trolling me. Idk if this was a robotic story and what I guess is this is drama story and another things about drama and stuff like that. A bit disappointed and feel uncomfortable with art. Story goes anywhere and have no track. Idk the point of this movie. Didn't hate but I just don't like it. The movement look so rough and the boss is easy to beat. Didn't have any intense fight tho. Well I will say this movie can't be enjoyable.

This type of art is remind me about Akiba Strip game, 3D and a bit similar.

I can see some stuff from the ova's has been changed (for the better). Decent movie with an interesting concept but I feel like it suffers in its poor execution (probably due to the movies short length). For example Kotoko suddenly turning out to be on Jin's side, with the next scene the gang hanging out as if the deadly fight two scenes before has already been forgiven and forgotten.

Nice movie! I still don't understand everything completely, I guess this would have worked better as a 12 ep anime. I like the story idea and the entertainment was good!
I expected a romance movie and was fooled by description and tagged genres but I liked this outcome xD
Personally I would add Action, Mecha and maybe Sci-Fi as genres in mal. But I don't know if that would be too much spoiler

Uh and an absolutely brilliant movie, I didn't think I'd go back to 3d anime again. However, it seems that after so long I managed to see one again and not be disappointed at all, but how confusing the story is at first that my head hurts. However, how Jin works is beautiful, if I were you I think I would have acted the same way if it was someone from childhood, or maybe I would have taken it into the hands of my other self (((:. But I really did not expect to be It was the world leaders who did this, at first I thought Kotori (Kotoko) was to blame.
Uh and I don't really understand that, but I was thinking that if these two worlds are separated, the two Kotori will come back to life, doesn't that mean that Shin's father and mother are back too? I mean, that would have been normal in my opinion. But ugly that Riko and Miko had to sacrifice themselves and poor Jin was left alone again in that ugly world. ⁇

I'd say it was pretty good. The premise was orginal and the animation looked great during the fights, but it looked like laggy PS3 cutscenes during normal conversations.

The story was a bit fast-paced but I don't mind because I would NOT watch this if it was a 12 episode series with the same story.

7/10 - nice palette cleanser after watching the entirety of Seitokai Yakuindomo (which was great ngl) over 2 and a half months
