Finally, a sci-fiction movie about time travel that actually makes some fucking sense. Because it's a teen movie, or it could be not the excuse, the atmosphere was light on the chest, often times the dialogues making me chuckle. Yet there is one line in the movie, which the plot revolves, that the comedic and adventure-themed animation didn't do any justice on the story.

There's no denying that its' background design is full with futuristic themes. However, on the late stages of the movie, it is basically, a unit spammer. You'll know what I'm talking about if you've seen them robots swarming. Animation on read more

2018 was nice.

But I didn't know this movie until a year later. At first, likewise to everybody's first impression, the title scared the shit out of me. Even one of the opening lines of the movie made fun of it.

Interactive, are we?

It gave then a deep, deep, and dark backstory. From what may be considered a product from the slice-of-life genre, the story strongly shows the pain through dialogues and facial expressions, instead of simply telling the character's thoughts, which have been quite the norm for the slice-of-life.

The style of the animators is the perfect definition of balance. Keeping the background beautifully read more

Overall, it is mediocre. The story of how little things could make a huge impact on someone, which again is beautiful, but not even imaginative. The only commendable thing here is that "age-is-no-barrier", yet remaining the ethics of a sane person.

Most of its script was dependent on the character's thoughts, which sadly, broke the "show-don't tell" rule. Love is unpredictable, but if the confession has no backstory, then it's not worth feeling it.

Background is believable, offering serenity and peace. However, failure after failure, the artwork on the characters are dreadfully simple. The sound puts a light atmosphere, and piano pieces are in play. The read more

For a 45-minute anime movie, this felt, if the conclusion was otherwise, very cheesy. The storyboard chose the right path, but rushed. Inevitably hopeless.

Story: No joke. It felt like your typical Disney plot but with a sense of realism. Script was one-sided, but just for the show. The backstory on the consistent return of our MC to the forest is shallow, that it could be mainly designed for children. No dynamics.

Art: Very simple. At least you made them move right. Eye design was atrocious. Background design is unimaginative.

Character: The anime focused on the story. Plus with the time constrict, it never gave read more

Unoriginal, unimaginative, and normal.

In what should only be seen in novels, the story is heavily dependent on internal monologue which, disappointingly, broke the rule of "show-don't tell". Even the thoughts are relate-able on the viewer, and painfully accurate, it felt as if the script was written by people who were lost in love, and not carefully thought out.

Perfect for wallpapers, and this is what anime is known for, but I discount it because our main focus is the characters, which is brutally animated.

Conclusion: Byousoku 5 Centimeter is a good anime, and I'm not judging it because of the ending that upsets many viewers. In read more

Story: Excessive amount of internal monologue. Broke the rule of "show-don't-tell". Dialogues are sometimes too flowery and out of place, but overall, the story is good enough to make an impression.

Art: Eye design is overdone. Artists exaggerated on the expressions of characters, and when they try to be realistic, it was horrendous. The dialogues are somehow connected to the art, and extremely reliant on the what the characters are seeing, and not what is really happening. Faces of the characters are eerily similar, but only with different hair color and shapes.

Sound: A pleasant sound to the ears. Would have been better if the characters read more

In a world where fantasy took over the Japanese animation world, this movie is a diamond in the dirt.

Of course, there are many, many anime movies that are visually entertaining than A Silent Voice is, but I adore how Kyoto Animation did this one. The background detail was decreased to further highlight the character's emotion through facial expressions and gestures without the stereotypical exaggeration.

The story is incredibly sequential. I have ran out of words to describe how beautiful a story, no, a journey it was. Powerfully written, and like I always expect from a masterpiece, a plot with a healthy level of looseness. read more

Story: The story was good enough to make an impression, despite being one-sided for most of the time. Inconsequential, and with few consistencies. For the viewer, it is satisfying, but logically insulting. Would have been better if some of the statements, dialogues, and monologues are backed up with backstories/reasons.

Art: With the addition of 3-dimensional rendering that could be seen in some scenes, and the ever-beautiful backgrounds which have been the trademark of the renowned director, the art was very good. However, the focus of our story is the characters which must have at least a commendable and genuine character design, which failed. Though it's good read more

The anime that set the bar in animation ridiculously high, Violet Evergarden is one of only two anime shows that I consider as a masterpiece. With its extremely accurate and hyper-realistic animation, it's a once-in-a-generation anime that is horrendously underrated by viewers due to its slow but reasonable pacing.

The character development of Violet Evergarden is simply phenomenal. The way the story isn't strict with the plot, through animating separate vignettes, and how Violet became the greatest dynamic character I have ever seen through learning the stories of everyone surrounding her, blew me away. The compactness in each and every scene, that the amount of read more
