Yep, it's sad alrighty. I bet your old lady will love it. Been trying to get her interested in Anime but could never find the right thing? Exploding robots and sexy babes just weren't doing the trick? Air is just the ticket.
The REALLY sad thing about this movie is that it's quite excellent in a technical way. The animation is great, and very detailed as others have already pointed out. Even the story is interesting. It sort of reminded me of old time twilight zone stories is a twisted-story kind of way. If you could take one of those stories, lengthen it over 12 episodes, add a bunch of tear jerkiness and give it a Japanese flavor you could end up with something like Air. You know those people who are always complaining about character development in movies? Well, they would o.d. on this.
So, it's OK except the entire time I was watching I wanted the story to move along, but I didn't want to fast forward because I didn't want to miss some important little detail that may pertain to something else later in the series.
My 6/10 is because this just ain't my cup of tea. However, I'm sure lots of people will love it (especially the ladies).
If you're just such a huge anime fan that you HAVE to watch it (like me), don't watch it with your buds. There are just too many parts where you "get something in your eye".
