    There is no way I can verify that you indeed watched it before the tag was added. Sadly, this is denied.

    This anime is not from the 2010's but from 1983 so I can't approve it.

    I will approve the two reviews because they were made for some short anime and there is not much you could review but, honestly, it's not in the spirit of ABC and I, personally, don't approve of this practice. APPROVED! You have 325 abstract points. Congrats in reaching level 1!

    APPROVED! You have 111 idol points.

    APPROVED! You have 23 memory points.

    APPROVED! You have 5 grand, blue points!

    APPROVED! You have 9 spicy, fluffy points!

    You've claimed it now. APPROVED! You have 4 mythical points. And I see that you have evolved to mythical again. Congrats! :D

    Thank you for the recommendation ^^
    I read the manga so I was familiar with the story and I can’t say I was blown away by the movie but it was decent.

    I can tell a lot of work went into the sound design but the constant instrumental symphony-esque poundings were an unrelenting onslaught -- my ears are still ringing from the strings.

    I did enjoy Catie Harvey as Yotsuha and Glynis Ellis as the grandmother but I didn’t care for Stephanie Sheh as Mitsuha, and Michael Sinterniklaas as Taki was iffy-alright.
    Though the Japanese voices for Mitsuha and Taki didn’t sound right for teenagers at all.
    --> It’s pretty common for me to find fault with vocal performances in both dub and sub. *sigh*

    The decision the dubbing team made for English covers of the songs is one I can support though.
    “Let’s make a sign for when we say nice to meet again” works just as well at conveying the message of the union between Mitsuha and Taki as “If both our voices could carry, what would we say?”.
    --> The Japanese singer’s softer voice matched better with the overall story though.

    I think there was either too much pressure on the animation team or they wanted to make this a “theatrical” film and it decreased the entertainment value for this viewer.

    I’ll same the same for the dub in regards to vocal casting. Too much reliance on well-versed actors who can do the job but who are so recognizable as this that and the other thing a dozen times over that it makes the listener yearn for something refreshing.


    My first personal connection
    “Some morning I wake up crying and don’t know why” → Dianne Reeves When I Cry “I call out your name.” -- oh the feels. If you’ve ever lost someone this song goes above and beyond in connecting with the pain you feel.

    My favorite part:
    “You work way too many shifts.”
    “'Cause you keep wasting money.”

    Overall I'd watch it again dub or sub but probably not for a few months.

    Ahh I see. Well, thanks for giving my suggestion a try anyway. I generally always watch the subtitled version because most of the time the English voices dont seem to match up with what was originally intended for the character, if that makes any sense.

    APPROVED! You have 8 defender points.

    APPROVED! You have 13 epidemic points.

    Can't approved this claim, as it appears that you started watching the anime in January and you must have both started and finished the series between the beginning of the season and the deadline at the end of the season. If you have re-watched those episodes after April 1st, then everything is ok but without that it can't be approved. So let us know if you did that and we will approve.

    It appears that you have already claimed those anime on your 3rd bingo card so you can't use them again.

    Thank you for claiming Colorful instead! And I understand that you had the screenshot but I think that we both know it's not that hard to get rid of the tag just for a screenshot :D
    Look, I've made my own! :D

    APPROVED! You have 364 delicious points. I blame Word for everything though so your eyesight is safe!:D

    It was a whole lot better than Colorful which popped up when I was looking for Eevee and Colorful Friends {guess it doesn't have a page on AP..couldn't find it}.
    Shortish long story: I was looking up the anime to show someone why Jolteon, Flareon, and Vaporeon are the best evolution of Eeevee and why I don't support the others.

    Anyways, both Colorful and Colorful (2010) popped up and I started Colorful first and got less than 30 seconds into it when I exited out.
    My poor eyes will not unsee that filth.​

    Colorful (2010) though I enjoyed. The main character did something heinous in life and as result the Powers that Be send him back to see his errors.
    I recommend it.​

    Haha nice Pokemon story. Eeevee is cute. But, I hated Colorful. Eeeeek.

    BTW I used spreed sheet for my anime challenges. I know, kinda nerdy, but it works. Maybe try that?

    I properly am going to throw in a couple of the obvious ones that some people are going to suggest and that is Konosuba and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime as they are shows that I personally enjoyed that fits this genre.
