With gorgeous enhanced visuals and artistic detail, Tamako Love Story dives a bit deeper into the human relationships presented in the series with a slightly more serious tone.
This is right smack dab in the good section of good movies that are made well. An excellently executed drama exploring the joys of really getting to know someone.
While interesting to see one of Makoto Shinkai's earlier works, this left me not really feeling anything. The first section was gorgeous and emotional, but the rest left me wanting.
While definitely a movie designed for children, there's a good amount of solid love that doesn't make it feel patronizing or pandering. A very cute, sweet, and emotional movie for all ages.
Focusing primarily on strong sisterly bonds, this movie is less of a Post-War Drama and more of a Period Drama (think Jane Austen meets Charles Dickens). It has calmer pacing than the series with even more gorgeous art and animation.
A truly beautiful movie with interesting, fresh, and unexpected elements, but still in the shadow of its predecessor, Your Name.
With some extra sentimental feels and more polished animation, this is a great finisher that fits right in with usual K-On shenanigans.
While it's literally the same plot as the series, the action and animation are improved (though some action is as believable as a Fast and Furious movie). It has a vibe of watching an eSports match, just with very Moe anime girls.
I can't remember the last time I literally felt my heart flutter in pure joy at the beauty of something. It feels like it's Christmas morning and you're eight years old again.
