Even comparing to a similar anime film Anthem of the Heart, which surprisingly lacked the ability to really give me a tearful moment. You were asking to have your gun jam on you. She is paper thin with her sole character trait being she likes to feed fish. Understand the events and eleven art brings a quiet voice: the film, the story of the atonement, to return to the big screen for two in January of this. Perhaps it was because of the limit of having to cram the story into a 2 hour film that the writers had to cut corners. The movie tried to stay true to the manga as best as it could and in the core elements in delivering the original message that the manga had, it succeeded. Con: I feel that the original manga's theme was very challenging for a very young manga artist to deal with; I also felt that some themes weren't fully explored or developed properly.
At Keisei Rosa10 in Chiba on September 17th. It was really incredible, I loved tons of shots, how they tried to accent on legs and lower parts of the body I mean shots excluding characters' heads :D. I dare say that in some aspects, it is better than a Ghibli film. Nothing too special and memorable besides theme song. Saori Hayami, Yuki Aoi, Miyu Irino were expectedly good, and Kaneko Yuki who played Midori in Tamako was a great pick for Ueno, another difficult character.
Story felt good and dramatic, as Japanese like to do. Lonely and depressed, unfortunately find Shoaya Shoya so mend. We are on 7 months for A Silent Voice and still nothing, along with no projected North America release date if there will be one. Character development with the side characters were very lacking and a lot of important details were stripped apart leaving a big hole in the story. Spoilers All spoilers must be tagged. I'm just saying that Kimi no Na wa was up for watching online not that I support illegal activity 6 months after theater release.
Years later, he sets himself on a path to redemption. However, was this better than Tamako Loves Story - I cannot tell. The tone and ambiance is not comedic. As I had heard people talking about while leaving the theater. Be prepared for a emotional roller coaster as the movie plays with your ever so weakening heart as the movie progresses.
Until an older, wiser Shoya, tormented by his past behaviour, decides he must see Shoko once more. She was asking him what he was texting about. The ambient piano background music really matches with parts of the film, and the use of marimbas and even silence at the dramatic climax worked out well. He wants to atone for his sins, but is it already too late. And I probably should finally read manga completely. But as for characters and their development, movie had some problems. Shouya shows no signs of development and no effort to change throughout the work and then magically obtains a group of friends.
And there were some shots that I didn't quite understand, like, for example, why Shouya's mom was bleeding and looked really beaten up, after she gave money to Shouko's mom? When the deaf Shouko Nishimiya transfers into his class, Shouya and the rest of his class thoughtlessly bully her for fun. But that also meant those who haven't were left scratching their heads. You tend to twist your elbow to absorb the recoil. I can tell you that this film is successfully doing what it wanted to do. The main reason for this release was to have an archive worthy 720p version that would also not hurt your storage space. But such a large amount of, probably, interesting supporting characters weren't developed good enough, even though the movie is more than 2 hours.
There's also the issue that a child's voice will eventually change, which can be a problem for long running series. He is heartlessly ostracized all throughout elementary and middle school, while teachers turn a blind eye. But unfortunately while following the path, they dropped a lot of it's side content. Keep in mind they have restrictions in place to avoid spam. A show like Monster works this concept excellently because it uses the object of interest Johan as more of a symbol.
The only character who avoided this cut was Yuzuru who retained a lot of her details and character development. Sadly, the execution is simply sickening. Having read the manga 4 times over and crying every time, I went into the theater not expecting much tears as I have pretty much dried up my emotional experience with this manga. It's just that it's higher pitched. An understated actor-actor wouldn't really become Redline or the majority of serial anime, and a perfectly enunciated and embellished voice actor I feel would be out of place in a quiet film like The Wind Rises. They're focused on different qualities that I feel can mesh with different tones of animated story. The major issue holding adults back is not their line delivery but actually their vocal pitch, which often sounds over-exaggerated.
