As much as the Great British weather tries to convince us otherwise, summer is finally on its way. And so what great timing to post this review of an animated film that I really should have watched sooner: Summer Wars!
So one day I was on the bus home from college and I wondered to myself: “When you mix the age of samurai with beatboxing, breakdancing and graffiti taging wars, what do you get? Well, I’ll be damned if I don’t go and find out.”
I found out that they blend together surprisingly well.
Warning: watch the film first – you won’t be disappointed
When I decided to write this blog, I decided to do so because, to be honest, not many people I know share this passion of mine, and those that do usually have different tastes etc. What I’m trying to say is I wanted to express my thoughts and opinions about the anime that I watch with a community that would actually want to listen and enjoy talking about it as well. I wanted to ‘share the love’, per say, and most importantly share the anime that I enjoy the most to other people so that they could enjoy it too. I really enjoyed this anime movie, and so before you read this, I want you to go and watch it first, because to be honest if you read the review and watch it afterwards you’ll walk in with such high expectations that I feel like it’ll ruin the impact a bit. There aren’t any spoilers in this review, but the amount of merit I gave the film for being awesome would take away the impact in a similar way that spoilers do.
It’s only a film-length film if you get my drift, so it won’t even need to give the usual time-investment that watching an entire anime series requires, so go away and watch it first – you won’t be disappointed!
Now for the review!
