For such a gorgeous-looking film, it was honestly jarring to notice cheap tricks - the "loop animation of characters walking while swapping the background" thing - but it was only once, and it was the only bit where I noticed, too.

It's gorgeous-looking and well-told, you should see it for those reasons if nothing else, but fact is that this story is really engaging. A lot of that engagement rests on plot tweeeests, so I'm honestly curious about how interesting it'll be upon the inevitable re-watch when I get the BD. It plays the high school romance angle completely straight, but who the hell cares about that when the rest of it is really, really good? I mean, this is the one you're going to show the next person claiming that 2D is dead. Hell, this is probably going to be my go-to film for people wondering why I'm into "cartoons" in the first place. Get your proper review elsewhere, I just wanted to put this out there.

And now, let us all consider what the press would've been like if it had been Disney who put out a film doing this story.

i watched it twice so far and enjoyed it both times. the 2nd time i got the experience of like, looking for things that connected to the twists that i now knew were coming, plus i was experiencing the dub the first time (the 1st time i saw it subbed), so maybe i won't enjoy it was much the 3rd time, but i think i will. i really really liked it. it helped that the tropes are tropes i really like too haha. i took my entire family to see it too (none of them are into anime) and they all loved it as well.
