On an island off the coast of Okinawa, two young men meet on a beach. Shun Hashimoto is gay and aspires to be a novelist. He is interested in Mio Chibana, a somber high school student, and starts to flirt with him. Day by day, the two of them grow closer, but then, suddenly, Mio decides to leave the island. Three years later, Mio returns and approaches Shun with the words, "I've thought about it for the past three years. I like you, Shun, even if you're a guy." However, when faced with the prospect of finally becoming lovers with Mio, Shun cannot take the first step towards commitment...?

review might have slight spoilers , but no major ones :) i watched this on 9anime.to , but you can find it on youtube aswell . im always looking for more wholesome or just in general good bl & gl . alot of the time theres some weird incest , the storyline is just bad or it fetishes mlm / wlw relationships which isnt something i want to watch . so when i got recommended this i was worried it was going to be like something i listed above , but i was so wrong . im surprised at how not alot of people are talking about this movie story : the storyline is so good and heartwarming . we see two boys ( shun and mio ) meet and have their feelings grow for one another as each day passes , however mio would have to move for the mainland leaving shun behind . after three years mio comes back because he still has feelings for shun and thats where their relationship starts to grow even more , however they are faced with difficulties as shun isnt exactly ready to commit to their relationship ( and another thing but i wont mention it ) . i loved the problems that the movie showed between their relationship , even if they were just minor ones it just felt so much more realistic compared to some other bl's animation : ahh dont even get me started , the animation is beautiful ! it was so colourful , everything was vibrant especially the flowers which is one of my favourite things about the movie . it was smooth and clean , thats all there pretty much is to say . they executed it really well sound : just like the animation , there isnt much to say apart from the fact is was good . the scenes at the beach were my favourite as the sound was so relaxing , it makes you feel as if youre actually there . the small details like hearing the kid running on the sand or the crickets when it turned to night was so cool characters : i loved the character designs and the detail that was put into them , including their backstrories as both mio and shun have gone through things . one of my favourite scenes was when we saw the flashback of mio and his mother running along the beach towards the end of the movie , it was a short moment but it was sad as you can understand the grief mio has gone through and how he misses his mother ( which is why he told shun to go see his father because he knows what its like to lose a parent ) overall : this movie is definitely worth the watch , its only about 58 minutes long and to me its different from the other bl's ive seen . im definitely going to be buying the manga to see what the movie may of missed out if anything at all . sorry if i missed anything out or wrote something wrong , this is my first review and if youve read it this far thank you :)
It was absolutely horrible. Characters are flat and unrealistic. It was trying to tell something more occasionally, like being excluded from group of friends and family but it was treated briefly. The story was meant to be peaceful and heartwarming but because of an unresonable behaviour of characters I couldn't get into it. Nobody acts like that, I couldn't sympathize with them. It has a simmiliar vibe to fanfics from wattpad. Besides that, the story was very rushed, everything happened so quickly, there wasn't time for this relation to grow up properly. I think that was the main reason it turned out so unnatural. I was laughing out loud during watching because of how cringe and ridiculous it was. The animation is good, but it's worthless without the story. Summarizing:Umibe no Étranger is a cheesy movie without depth. Conflicts are artificial, as well as characters. I think that the plot wasn't a priority there. "Cute" interactions between poor created characters are the main advantage of this movie, but it isn't enough to make it interesting.
