Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
Hello miss! So what do you like most about Sora Takenouchi?
In response to your Kaze No Stigma comment:
Thank you very much ! I will admit that this review needs some heavy work since I really wrote it at the heat of the moment but, I still stand with my sentiments on it. The direction of the story needed more exploration and some world-building to even be warranted some development, to be honest. All we ever saw was the protagonist being well caught up in their past - I mean it's fine but they way it's approached in the plot isn't: more world-building, less squeezing with the villain could have helped. The 20+ episodes aren't justified by how tediously long the pace the felt.
Well, from around 400 of the anime I've watched so far, pink-haired characters have had a reputation of being my bad side. I'm automatically prejudiced to think that their characters will go down hill if they have even that one element, lol. However I don't think every single pink-haired character is necessarily bad - you could say it's more of an anime meme trope.
Hello there, I apologise for the late reply. I've been busy with school work this past few months and thus, I didn't have much of a chance to log in. I've doing well. How about you ?

I think those are some very well tropes to explore from a slice of life lens, it's something that the film delivered finely. However, I think a bigger issue presents itself with these adolescents. Is fantasy land their only refuge ? Assuming that the film was targeted towards a younger audience, I don't mind the setting but it feels a bit uneasy sometimes. At the core, the presentation was well purveyed but on the other hand, I would love to have seen a bit more of fleshing out of those tropes.
I can't blame the director or writer for this since it's more of a industry tradition rather than a consequence of innovative artistry. I think Ghibli films approach issues like this in a similar but classical way. They're not by themselves all that thought provoking but the vibe they present to their audience which is 'everyone' instead of a certain demography is amazing: there are times when they do take the leap, like for e.g. Grave of The Fireflies or When The Wind Rises. Those are fantastic - despite realistic depictions.
I think tackling tropes with well driven, immesive, other-worldly theme can truly invoke a fitting experience for such a film.
Sorry for the late reply. I wish you a wonderful New Year ahead as well ! Happy 2021 !
