Japan's Answer To Disney's Star Wars
25 July 2018 | by jop-84271See all my reviews

This is Japan's answer to Disney Star Wars, a film made with low quality, stupid script and for teenagers.

There is a thin girl and she is made to act so teen girls can pretend they are her as they watch the film and fantasize themselves as the character (like Daisy the Mary Sue in Star Wars). She looks at a regular ordinary junk cat trinket and thinks it is the cuuuuuutttteeest thing in the world (like Daisy the orphan looks at the Millennium Falcon and can fly it!), then things happen for no reason and the plot gets really stupid. For example, she is standing right there in plain sight five meters away but neither guy can see her and they talk about her and she overhears everything. Ha!?! Yup inexplicable Mary Sue plot points.

Anyway, just a stupid film based on somebody else's work that has girls watching and seeing themselves in the situation. In this case a 16-year old who is going to marry and goes on long distance trips with her beau and has no parental supervision or anything (in Star Wars it was an untrained orphan thief who could fly space ships, make random long distance video calls with her mind and of course know the jedi arts better than jedi no training required).

Yup it's nonsense.
