    Who the hell decided character outlines had to be black anyway?

    Summer Wars is a delightful movie exploring the concept of family, identity and the internet at large, which are all very popular themes explored in Japanese media.
    Being an internet dweller, I found myself thoroughly enjoying how well thought-out the world felt. But let me jump to what I really want to talk about here: The animation.
    I absolutely adored seeing traditional animation and computer animation working in tandem…

    Summer Wars manages to do a lot with its nearly two hours runtime, and while it means it doesn't manage to excel in any of its themes and tends to fall back on familiar anime tropes, the film delivers a satisfactory experience wrapped in fantastic visuals.

    Oh boy the visuals were really great and the OZ world that they were in looked really cool, and the art style was really nice to look at, real interesting movie kept me immersed the whole time but the way things worked in the OZ world were a little vague or maybe I just missed it either way this was a really great movie.

    The first half is promising, but the plot quickly becomes extraordinarily corny. The 3DCG is pretty good, and the film isn't ugly; it's just not that great, especially for a theatrical release.

    An ode to family values and their never-dying importance, this is a visually dazzling and masterful animated film that offers a display of imaginative storytelling, superb characterizations, outstanding timing for comedy and poignant emotional components. Its sci-fi-influenced storyline may present quite a few outlandish elements that are necessary to get used to during the first few minutes, but once the story kicked off and all the major characters were properly introduced, it grabbed my full attention to never let it…

    A great fun anime about a family having an adventure in the internet. It has the most clever use of fighting on the internet.

    What started out as a cliche teen love story evolved into a badass cyper-brawl for the ages!

    Summer Wars is an amalgamation of several things. It's like a Charles Dickens novel where everyone important somehow knows each other, it's like an average anime film where it's extremely melodramatic with all the other hallmarks that go along with that (most obviously in its final phase), it's like and it's even like a Yasujiro Ozu movie in the way that it largely focuses on a Japanese family in their beautiful old-style home, and has the old matriarch of the…
