Hotarubi no Mori e

Jun 27, 2015

If you want to get someone hooked on anime, make them watch this. 

I cant really say much about it. It feels like im watching a Ghibli classic. Friendly animation, good music, sweet story, strong and memorable ending.

Negatives would be predictability and the fact that they somewhat play with it.

SPOILER: my first thought was that the Hotaru will fall from somewhere and Gin will catch her to save her or maybe pull her out of the way from some other danger. And they almost did it. Its kind of playing with the nerves of the spectators. 

Also the animation fells outdated for 2011, but its still good. 

Overall: I strongly suggest it for everyone and even more so for people, who are noobs at anime. You want to get hooked? Watch this!
