Yeah it seems it just have to be that way, again I don't intend to attack you personally or your taste, it's clear that you are passionate about this show, it's just my personal taste really. I'm just expressing that this show could've been much better given its promising setting and world from my point of view. If you like the show, it's completely fine, I won't condemn you for it, everyone has different taste, like favorite foods for example.

I have to disagree about me viewing it as normal romance show, I already made it clear that I understood where Chise and Elias is coming from, what's their personality, and how they have been set up from the very beginning.

There's a huge difference between trying to awkwardly learn how to establish proper relationship and being forced-fully to act certain way by the show that it made the interaction felt jarring, unnatural, and inconsistent as the show progressed. I don't have problem if the show presented Chise and Elias having unique kind relationship or took their sweet time for slow burn or something along those lines, just keep the characters consistent as the story progressed.

I know the manga is ongoing, and my problem is not so much the ending of the anime, more of how they handle the characters and story.

I understand that the angle of of their romance is that Chise is throw herself fully to Elias, while Elias himself is ignorant of love emotion(or any emotions really) and basically a kid(even most of kids understand more emotions than him) in adult body. I think I should clarify what I meant by forced.

I understand that they are purposefully made to be that way given the situation of both characters at the beginning, it's just that the show keep trying to make it that they are more or less about at the same level of understanding as when they started throughout the majority of the show, basically like one step forward and one step backward or maybe more of 3/4 step backward. It just that I felt like the show is trying hard to sell us "Look at how awkward and cute their relationship is", it's understandable for the couple times at beginning to mid, especially with the settings that has been set in the first place, but when you keep doing it even after some moment when it's clear that they have some grasp about what they are feeling towards each other, more than half of all episodes later, I cannot help but think "Haven't we gone through this?".

I don't mind about Chise and Elias personality, in fact at the beginning of the show, I immediately understand the setting that is prepared for both of them, and I eagerly anticipated it, watching all of their interactions with each other, and when it looks like there's some progress, I was glad. But after like 3/4 of the show later, I felt that there's no meaningful progress, like "where's the previous progress??". I understand there is "progress" but honestly like I said, the show keep trying to make the characters show this "awkwardly cute romantic bonding moment" by switching "romantic" and "non romantic" moments without inbetweens that it felt jarring. In final episode I just felt like the show suddenly throw "This is the final episode, let's wrap this up in romantic mini weeding!".

They just feel so inconsistent and unnatural, so by forced I meant that, not that I don't like or don't understand what the setting is. I understand it and in fact eagerly trying to enjoy every step of the journey to the end. It's just that the show forced them to "act this way" and "act that way" when the show wants it, instead of their relationship progressing naturally along with the story.

Just my personal opinion on the show, not trying to attack you or anything like that really.

Hmm. I don't agree with that at all but it's understandable opinion.

Only Yesterday is the most human anime film for me. It captured the subtle, delicate emotions in astonishingly detailed manner. Regret and nostalgia are not something dramatic like the most of works, but rather something trivial… yet bittersweet.

thanks but sadly removed due to overuse of Caps

That's good.

It seems like you've given some… scores that would be interesting to talk about, lol.
Only Yesterday is one of them.
