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 !

Well, I'm glad we can be cordial about the flaws it has. 

Yes, it's definitely proprietory to revise the prose or the episodes before making a conclusion. In many cases, some anime/manga require the audience to re-visit it in order to fully grasp the underlying theme or plot - some complain about this being a flaw on the writer's end but, I typically don't think that's true. I see it as more of an innovative and original way of tying things up. Then again, I don't think anyone expects the average viewer/reader to expose themselves to something more than once since they mainly engage in it for entertainment purposes. Also, thank you again XD. 

I'd be willing to revisit it, should there be a re-adaptation.

No problem ! You do the same.
