I never knew it was possible for a documentary to be THIS bad...
8 August 2019 | by wildernessloftsSee all my reviews

You could make a drinking game out of all of the times the narrator curses for no valuable reason or how many times she says she doesn't know/still doesn't know anything about anime.

As others have said, this feels more like an hour long commercial than any sort of actual documentary. It has absolutely no value to anyone that is familiar with anime and even less for people wishing to dive into the medium.

She tries to portray these artists, producers, etc. as eccentric, otherworldly characters instead of real people. She jabbers on and on about things that really don't seem like actual coherent thoughts.

She knew nothing about anime, and now, as a life-long viewer of anime; I feel like I know less than I did when I started. That's how bad she is.
