Only Yesterday review

Only Yesterday (Omohide poro poro) is quite a mature anime aimed at the josei audience (females from late teenage years to later), according to Wikipedia. It has a very heartfelt story that isn't usually found in animated form, but Studio Ghibli adds its own touch of magic to it without straying from reality.

Unlike many other Ghibli films, this one isn't really for kids. It deals w... read more

This was seriously my first attempt of a really "Slice of Life" anime
piece of work, and was I completely stunned by the amazing story this
turned out to be... It was enjoyable, interesting and rather thoughtful
ever since the beginning, simply because the characters were so simple,
realistic, well-developed and most important of all, likable. The
ending was outs... read more

"4.7.2014 Aikamoista nostalgointia ja menneisyyden läpikäymistä ei-koheltevalla ja draamaan painottuvalla otteella, joka on aina otteena toki toimiva - ja jokseenkin ei-Japanilaisissa animaatioissa aivan liian vähän nähtyä - ja vaikken itsekään nostalgiaan taipuva tai menneisyyttä muisteleva tyyppi olekaan, tämä suhteellisen laajasti ja osuvastikin onnistui niitä kaikenlaisia suuria pettymyksiä ja traumoja ja positiivisia kokemuksia käsittelemään."

"01.08. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Isao Takahata Another 4-star Ghibli film but what can you do? It's sincere, heart-warming, beautifully drawn and animated and had great music as well - so it's like every other Ghibli film I've seen. The childhood parts felt particularly authentic. I also have a soft spot for romance films where no actual romance happens, 'cos "
