Like every other thing i've watched from Makoto, it hasIncredibly beautiful animation and an interesting concept, but it was obviously conceived for 16-year-olds. Still enjoyable to watch and great to look at. It could've done without the third segment or actually doing a third segment for realz.
My rate: 70% - Aesthetically beautiful piece of art with its attention to detail. The visuals and the gestures presented sent out emotions that speak out better than any words. I felt connected to the story aswell even though it did got a little too overly-sentimental for me.
I think the graphic is to too excessive but overal look great. And when we look from the side of story , thats too flat and make me a little bored to be seen , especially the ending looks weird and awkwardness.
this film accomplishes what creating time to watch a film should be like: an atmosphere you can sink into and just absorb. every favorite film of mine has affected me on some spiritual scheme and this is no different. a poignancy that is so serene you almost forget how much it hurts.
It wasn't bad but overall this is a movie that I will most likely remember just for the animation and the backgrounds and not so much for the story or the characters. Although the animation its a little limited, the visuals and the backgrounds can be really impressive at times, however the romance/drama its far too corny and the characters are just forgettable. The film may look nice but everything else its boring.
