Using superpowers to enter their clientele’s photos one by one, Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang take their work seriously at “Time Photo Studio,” a small photography shop set in the backdrop of a modern metropolis. Each job can be full of danger, but nothing is more important than fulfilling every order, no matter the scale…or peril involved!
Just like the majority of the reviews say, this Donghua (Chinese Animation) is much better than expected and not the generic story that you could expect from the first episodes. The show starts episodic but beginning with Episode 3, the cases they investigate take 3-4 episodes (see the note below for the special), finally revealing that there is a main storyline that ties everything you have watched. So this is one show that you really need to commit to the end of the season to properly judge the full story. Unfortunately, this season ends with a huge cliffhanger, so you'll have to wait for the upcoming 2nd Season to conclude the story. Some people have compared this to Violet Evergarden for the structure of the show. But while Violet Evergarden leaves you with a feeling of hope after each episode, these stories are rather dark & somber, Episode 1 will give you a good idea of the style and types of stories you'll see. However, the structure of the show will change towards the end. The struggle between the capacity to change the past in order to create a better future vs. the unforeseen consequences this could have on the present; is one of the main aspects of this show that keep it interesting. You may identify with the character who "wants to help no matter what", or the other character who "knows better" and is more cautious about how the changes could affect the timeline. The struggle with these contradictions is what takes most of the show and what makes you feel for each story. The animation is good for its time. The Music is outstanding, I especially liked the outro and think is a perfect fit for the mood of the show. The background music and songs in the stories are quite good as well. NOTE: I recommend you watch Link Click: Marrying by Contesting between Episodes 2 & 3 as it's where it fits best chronologically. This special is advertised as Episode 5.5 as I assume that was the order it was released between Episodes 5 & 6, but this story couldn't possibly happen at that point in time, so I recommend you watch between Episodes 2 & 3 where it fits better chronologically and also because the story on Episode 6 continues immediately after Episode 5, so it makes sense to watch that way. This story will be referenced again in Episode 6.
I'm surprised to see that there's no reviews on Link Click yet. Well, it's still airing episodes... but anyways. Link Click is so enjoyable that I'm giving it 10/10 and 5 stars! I love the idea where they can go back in time, and run a small business based on that ability. If haven't seen Link Click, and read reviews to decide if you should watch it or not, let me just say... You should watch it! I'm 99% sure that you'll enjoy it. It's a pretty original original work of art, and it's really underrated. I recommend to watch this late at night while enjoying some snacks. That's how I enjoyed it. There isn't one boring episode (so far). I'm not very good with reviews, so I'm sorry if it sucks. I want to help people find something good to watch, and I hope this review made someone at least consider to start watching Link Click. And I'm also sorry if there's some spelling mistakes. I'm not English. This is my 2nd review ever.
‘Shiguang Daili Ren’ or ‘LINK CLICK’ tells us the story of Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang two men with special powers who alter time with their superpowers, for the better or for the worse.The first thing you will notice is how striking and aesthetically pleasing the opening and ending is. In terms of animation, it is perfectly done, a beautiful combination of smooth and sleek - and the music fits perfectly as well. Moving on to the art style and animation, its style is very unique in my opinion. It’s not “detailed” or “smooth” but the line-art and general style of it is very well done. There is a certain charm to it that transports you to a new world altogether. The characters aren’t two-dimensional or generic, with no backstory. We are given a glimpse of how the two met, and they are a perfect blend of chaos and neutrality, and regardless of being polar opposites, they make a perfect team.This is definitely Haoliners Animation’s shining gem, and I think it is safe to say that I am deeply and heavily invested in this ONA, and I am constantly looking forward to the new episodes. It’s truly one of a kind, with its animation, art style, plot, characters, soundtrack – it truly looks like this ONA has the potential of being popularized more. I’m really glad I got to know about this and I would highly recommend it.
