  • [ – ] theoldsparrow reply It was a from the heart and fine review. I watched Koe no Katachi recently and it was really good. I highly recommend it. I didn't like it as much as Kimi no Na wa which seems to get an unfair comparison because the're apples and oranges but since they came out around the same time I guess it is kind of natural. Most of my friends liked Koe no Katachi better. Koe no Katachi is about finding your place in life after the hardships in your life that you caused. It's refreshing and realistic in that a lot of the bad stuff that happens doesn't just happen to us but we play a role in it. It's easy to write off Shouya when he was a dumb kid getting egged on to bully someone who is different and just wanted to be friends with everyone but it's hard not to sympathize with his older self. These are flawed characters and that's a good thing. The ending as you mentioned was very cathartic after all the pain these characters went through. Only advice I would give to someone going into this movie bl...moreind is don't consider it a romance movie. That's not what it's about and if you do want romance go watch Kimi no Na wa instead.
    • [ – ] SamEarl13 parent reply Thanks for the comment, I definitely wouldn't consider it a romance either. I haven't watched that other movie yet although I'm the sort of person that doesn't compare anything in reviews.
      • theoldsparrow parent reply Kimi no Na wa is really good. It is a romance with a twist though so it just depends on if you will like that kind of thing. Definitely check it out, friend.
