About this movie

When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he’s taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice.

This one is merely good, but really weak in comparison to Wolf Children and Summer Wars (may their smoke rise up forever).

Comes up short in comparison to other animations. The art work quality is on par, however the pace is somewhat choppy and all over the place. Hard to recommend amongst all the better of this genre, however if youve already watched all Ghilbli's film, then might as well watch this as well.

Best movie next to Wolf Children. Very good lessons are learned from this movie. I laughed and cried. Anyone that hates it is a fool. This is a great movie that is going to be long remembered by all anime/ animated movie lover fans. <3
