A high-school girl named Makoto acquires the power to travel back in time, and decides to use it for her own personal benefits. Little does she know that she is affecting the lives of others just as much as she is her own.
Told in three interconnected segments, we follow a young man named Takaki through his life as cruel winters, cold technology, and finally, adult obligations and responsibility converge to test the delicate petals of love.
The latest feature film from award-winning Japanese director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children): When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he's taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who's been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely family will be put to ultimate test-a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.
So, I finally watch this movie, and I never expected how good will be. The story can be very familiar, it has and been used before but, how is told in this movie and how the characters grows through it, really brings this anime in a different level. I got emotional during the movie and had this feeling of affection for this characters. The story develops really well, with great pace and giving time for the characters to grow. The animation is great and very well done with simplistic style but in a great way. At the end I was so glad that I just invested 2 hours of my time in this anime. Great movie, great story telling, great animation, what else you need? I really recommend this movie!!! So good!!! giving 10/10.
