    ★★★★½

    Amazing story, with a colourful and memorable cast of characters. The actors' performance was good, nothing too outstanding, but good, I'd say. The way the story unfolded was done really well, and there was always that little speck of ambiguity around everything, making the viewing experience itself very enjoyable.

    Absolutely phenomenal acting, and the dialouge is super well written. The movie knows perfectly well when to be funny, and when to be dramatic, as it has a tight balance between the two. The character drama is also done very well, especially the relationship between the teacher and the guy in the jeans jacket. The lunch break scene and the final act was also a joy to behold. One of my favourite movies so far, loved it.

    ★★★★½

The character designs are simple, yet beautiful, and there is loads of expressive animation. The visuals and aesthethic are my favourite part though, I just love it so much. Everyone should watch this, it's great!
