I thought overall it was a great movie. I kind of thought the character designs compared to the wonderful scenery were very plain, if not a bit ugly. I was kind of thinking through most of the movie that Yuki's friend was also a wolf or some other animal. It was such a big deal that he could smell her. I gave it an 8, maybe 8.5

Good story telling.
My complain is that ending feel a bit rush,Ame changes not explain clearly(but perhaps that's understandable as Yuki is the one who narrate the story) and Yuki-Souhei relation feel a bit force.

But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.
It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

12:00 human transformation to wolf = scary, freaky, run away
12:43 wtf? Wolf x human doin it? How distrubing…
20:00 fucked up trash collector scene… just f-ed up
35:23 hana really fixed up the place
1:08:31 Yuki is starting to look like her mom
1. I knew I wasn't going to like this series because the genre's were only 'slice of life' and 'fantasy'… which usually contain ordinary (boring) stories.
2. Don't mate with a wolf human cuz wolf kids are hard to deal with & Hard to fit in with other kids
3. Felt sorry for hana. She had to deal with so much yet she's strong
4. Ame chose the crappy way of living. U don't get to watch anime or play games in the forest.
5. There was no narration by Ame… that's probably because he didn't go to school
6. If this series taught me anything… then it's to not have kids. U lose all ur freedom, time, and u end up getting divorced in the end.

I just finished watching the movie. Without even thinking, I gave it a 10/10. (And I'm very fussy about giving out 10s, trust me.)
I just... I can't even describe how powerful it was in words. But I can say that my soul feels like it's been robbed of everything and replaced by a vat of sadness that can never be repaired.
@billybob300c Seriously, your review gave me some much needed laughter. It was fun!
@Aeowina Yeah, the fight scene with Ame was really scary. Especially that last look... ;-;

I just finished the movie and I think this is probably one of my favorite movies ever. I was very surprised at how realistic it was...well as realistic as having wolf children is.
Good job to Hana and all mothers out there! I knew from my mom it was tough raising my brother and me as babies but never did I know the details. She is a very strong woman and I thought her determination to raise her children was admirable.
As for the movie dragging out, I personally liked it because I never wanted the it to end. xD
People here are complaining about Ame and his decision to leave or Yuki's decision to live in a boarding school but that is their choice; the same thing applies to all parents out there. One day, your children that you've worked so hard to raise are going to leave. I don't believe that they'll never come back. I'm sure that both of them are very grateful to Hana, like Ame's touching farewell that showed he wasn't leaving because he wanted to. The important thing was that Hana seemed to accept both of their choices. :)
In my opinion, this movie isn't sad but the struggles the characters go through and then the final ending really touched me(so obviously I cried.) :') Will be watching this again.

Don't really like how the drama sets up for the characters in this movie.
Although, the movie is down right cute at times which is a good thing, and the art is very nice especially the background looks a little real life to it like the trees.
7.5/10 Good movie, but not exactly my favorite movie.

Wolf Children is amazing. Definitely earned it's place being MAL's top 10 anime. Truly spectacular. I've watched it several times already, Must watch agaiiin. Srsly tho, this is one of the most inspirational anime to teach me how to work hard, just like Hana.

Okay just finish watching the behind the scenes work and lots of info i managed to get :D
Hosoda-san use his hometown as a setting is because during the production of the movie. They were traveling all over Japan to see what setting they have. His past works(Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo, Summer Wars) uses a more fictional setting based on real world.
Here, he wanted a more realistic setting. He also happens to stumbled upon a abandoned mansion next to his hometown so that's when he decided he would use this for the movie.
If the mansion was not there, the setting would have been different :P
Voice recording was only done in 4 days(Full time though non-stop), I'm guessing they spend more time on the animation and story. Surprise they still manage to make a high quality voice work in such a short time!
Osawa, Takao(OOkami's voice0 even said not to dub the movie during screening all over the world. He doesn't care about his own voice, but the voice and production value the staff put it all in their work.
Something dubs will only replicate and nothing more :)
I also saw the trailers, damn i'm glad i didn't watch them!
Soo many spoilers! They even showed the death of OOkami and the last scene when Ame was on the top of the mountain!
It also reminded me when Ame's eyes became all red after the fight with Yuki. I actually thought they were gonna kill each other that time O__O
Here's the post interview from last year.
I can't wait for whatever his next work will be :)

Wow, that was a really great movie :D
They were a really sweet and lovely couple T^T Why did Ookami have to die T^T
Hana still managed to take care of the children and raised them, but she sacrificed many things, though you can see the happiness in her :))
Ame and Yuki are both so adorable when they are little *^*
Their house and the place where they live looks so beautiful!! I am really going to Japan!!
Yeah, the only thing that I didn't like like was that they just left Hana alone in that house. If only Ame had some friends, he would have probably chose the human path just like Yuki. Yuki should still live with Hana because they can't just leave her all alone, she has done so much for them T^T
Beautiful story, characters, OST, sceneries, animation, atmosphere, and voice acting. The song at the end was really good too.
I really enjoyed this Anime, it was beautiful. I'll read the Manga someday :D
I really thought that Shinkai Makoto directed this movie *facepalm* I just checked it out a few minutes ago and it was Hosoda Mamoru who directed this movie. I must say that he is good, direction was beautifully done. So, he is the one who made Summer Wars too! So, that's why this and Summer Wars' animation and character designs looks really the same, they both have the same feel too (Madhouse is really good at animating). I'll watch Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo too someday!
Thank you ^^
