The editing in this film is something special, and it seems to only be possible in animation. The constant shifting of what is reality helps bring you into the main character's mind and makes this one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever seen. Something else I really love about this film is the story idea is so uniquely Japanese. I don't know any grown men here who love girl bands. Love the soundtrack too.
3.5, probably 4. Edits, cuts, go to unexpected places. Except for all those scenes that revel way too much in the image of beaten young women. Anyway, I usually don't like montages this flashy in modern drama (as opposed to say, and experimental film). Personal taste def. pushing against high esteem I have for the way this was put together. Hate it when that happens!
yo i'm a sucker for animated movies and let alone a psychological thriller animated movie. lots of unexpected stuff, really cool shots and little technical things that made me happy. the ending was a little weird and awkward but yknow who cares. would watch again tbh
