Not very good
5 August 2019 | by lodekepolletSee all my reviews

I watched anime for a couple of years now and also read quite a lot of manga so I think i know enough about the subject. This documentary doesn't really help with learning about the industry except for a few interviews with some creators and people that are involved on the industry. I also disliked the editing and the fact that it's pretty much a giant advertisement for Netflix.
