Story


This serves as a meer snapshot into the lives of the Borrowers and Sho at this pparticular instance. Some people will not enjoy the openness of the ending and there are some parts which drag a little but I think it serves a a very believable insight into how these people, both big and small, go about their lives.

Animation


As is to be expected this is amazing. There is fantastic amount of detail in the Borrowers world. So much care has been put in to showing how peole this size would cope and interact with the world making it a pleasure to watch. 

Sound

There is a little depart from what is normal here, with more of a European feel to the soundtrack. This matches the feel of the setting and is perhaps a nod at the English author. The voicing was good and well matched into the characters.

Characters

The characters are good, but not quite up to the same standard. There is a strong heroine, as usual, but for a change we do have some characters playing gender-stereotyped roles. Also I felt that both Sho and Homily could have benefited form more development.

Overall

Having watched quite a few of the Borrowers adaptations I can say that this one is my personal favorite. A little more depth to the characters and some closure and this would have definitely had a higher score

8/10 story
