    I can admit that there may be a few misconceptions about the movie that may lead the viewer astray from what he or she was expecting; the title and beginning scene with Kenji/Natsuki assumed an innocent romance adventure between two teenagers. Little did I know - INTERNET WAR WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, FAMILY DYNAMICS, AND COLLECTIVE GOODNESS FROM STRANGERS ALL OVER THE WORLD. Perhaps the sort of frivolousness and rather convenient plotline may turn people off, but how can general fans…

    A fun little flick and beautifully animated. A real clever way to balance a more domestic story with a more fantastical one. The action scenes in particular are amazing. A wonderful fluidity to them that you can't really recreate in live action.

    A surprisingly good science fiction animation - the idea of everyone around the world depending on an online platform and the way that this can be misused and endanger the world was interesting.

    Que bien me lo he pasado. Me ha encantado todo, aunque creo que me quedo más con la trama familiar que la virtual.
    Enorme lo abuela. Lo mejor de todo.

    Alle ingrediënten voor typische anime: vrolijk, grappig verhaal over familiereünie bij adellijke oma, temidden waarvan een wizzkid - verliefd op oma's kleindochter - een wereldbedreigend computervirus bestrijdt

    Siempre que haya ciencia ficción, fantasía, realidad virtual o algo similar, rompiendo con la rutina y la realidad, acabo locamente encantada y emocionada ♥
    No tenía ni idea de esta película, ni tan siquiera de que iba. Y he alucinado bastante!!!! La recomiendo!

    De Hosoda había visto sólo Wolf Children en un Sitges hace unos años (¿2012?) y me prometí ver más cosas de él nada más salir de la sala. Por fin me he puesto a ello, y creo que Summer Wars me ha gustado TODAVÍA más. ¡Que derroche de imaginación, que bien funciona la dualidad entre el mundo real y Oz, que fácilmente se explica la idiosincrasia de ese mundo virtual y que sorprendentemente épico y sensible resulta cuando le toca!.…

    So cool.

    Animation is BEAUTIFUL, story is good, and the characters are likable.

    I would say more but I'd probably just ramble on about the animation.
    (cries silently because it is so beautiful)

    Diversión familiar con doble vertiente (mundo virtual y temas de familia). Del mundo virtual esperaba ver mucho más, pero el inesperado toque familiar me ha sorprendido por su realismo aún siendo tópico.

    Really disappointed in this, being from the director of Wolf Children and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Just a really odd film. Maybe it translates better with Japanese culture, but I just couldn't get into this at all. Didn't get into any of the human relationships, just seemed a lot thinner than most of the Japanese animated films I've seen.

    The family dynamic reminds me so much of my own. With the old matriarch at the helm of it all, it just reminded me so much of how my grandma is also like that and how I am a very strong woman who makes decisions in her family more than the men would or do. So, yes I cried a lot.

    Pensada para los pajeros de lo japonés -pero accesible igualmente y con un aroma a Digimon: The Movie perdonable-, ésta es una historia que bebe de un montón de shonens populares (tebeos japoneses pensados para el adolescente más puro y guerrillero de todos) y que fluctúa, por tanto, sobre un montón de caminos: todos ellos, eso sí, de satisfactorio desenlace.

    Se podría resumir en algo más que en cómo de disfrutable es ver a un pre-adolescente salvar a su sociedad…
