This is a series that could have been acted out in live action but I'm sure something would have been lost in that context. What's presented here is just enough of a slice-of-life series to keep the characters in the realm of reality, yet artistically askew enough to allow the viewer the illusion of safety in the believe that it is not "actually" happening. The seemingly watercolored backgrounds almost give a sense of unrolling an old silk story scroll and the animation is just enough to bring it to life.
In the end, I'm left depressed and a bit uncomfortable with the humanity of it all. Koshiro, the male lead, is a man who has truly hit rock bottom. He has reached the point where he's so indifferent to the people around him that he even treats his (ex)girlfriend like a stranger. Yet, for a moment, the bright eyes of a young girl help him to see that it is actually spring time. Problem being; it's those same eyes that lead to a much greater downfall in the story to come.
More often than not, it's stories like this that make me appreciate Japanese Animation so much. Through simplistic artwork a subtle characters comes an emotional intensity that can't be matched by any level of violence or noise that the mainsream often delivers.Read more ›
I thougth it will be wrong and disturbing.
yet when you sit down and watch it, it is amaxingly done. I dont feel creeped out by it, your heart wrenches for the characters.
I think Koshiro is one of the best ,and most realalistic anime charcters I have seen written in a very long time.
Shortly after watching the first DVD I had to run out and buy the other 2, cause I needed to know what happened.
it is sad, and involved.
I have found it difficult to try to bring new watchers into this series. I try to go into the the general plot and people ugh our sick. but it isnt like that.
I doubt this helped had a review , but trust me it is worth at least one veiwing.
it is a well done anime.
This anime is world class, very realistic stuff (at least in the case of koshiro's character). For anyone who really wants to understand some of the complex dynamics and feelings of what having siblings is like this series is a must. For I think anyone mature who's open minded and has always wanted to understand or explore those `strange' and `weird' more-then-just-siblings feelings moments in their childhood, it will most likely be enjoyable analysis and social commentary on how non-disgusting genuine love between two people is, who just by fate happen to be related to one another grow to love one another. This is simply a must see for all mature brothers and sisters (who know who they are) who've struggled with similar more-then-sibling feelings at times, even if fleetingly for but a moment.Read more ›
