Still an innovative premise that documents the unique experience of a demographic that’s been underrepresented by cinema and society at large (Gay Black Men)
I spose we can make this one simple:
Tl;dr it looks and sounds great. Best Japanese animated film of the year.... BUT the writing was dumb. Don’t regret seeing it in theatres
1. Absolutely superb grasp of visual composition in animation. Top notch score, near flawless editing. Technically/theoretically speaking the best in the series.
This was definitively a FILM and not a TV EPISODE and was by far the most well crafted anime I’ve seen this year.
Rewatched this film 3 times now and it has truly affirmed itself as my favorite; withstanding the test of time!
Why? For starters this movie is 6 or 4 (depending on the cut) HOURS long and despite this can be watched multiple times! Each rewatch is more productive than the last as the eyes begin to move away from the subtitles and toward the films visual elements! It is bizarre, cheesy, offensive but somehow it is never ending once unbearably…
