(May contain spoilers. And English mistakes. Sorry about that.)

Summer Wars is a feature-length anime, directed by Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) in 2009. It was produced by Madhouse Studios.

Summer Wars tells the story of Kenji, a shy boy who one day is “recruited” by Natsuki, an older coleague, for a summer job at her family's home. However, as... read more

trippy and absurd

I cant help but wonder what was the idea behind this movie... I try but I´m clueless nevertheless. I guess it tries to unify way too many issues (family, tecnology, love, social networks, anime, videogames, japan history and the list goes on) in a movie meant for teens but also for kids, young adults, adults and perhaps some grannies.

It fails but it´s interesting enough (the end... read more

"Mamoru Hosoda's next film after 'The Girl Who Leapt Through Time' was this even better . 'Summer Wars' is a fast moving comedy adventure in which a gifted maths student, Kenji, is forced to pose as an acquaintances fiance when she visits her oddball extended family for her great grandmother's 90th birthday. On top of this, Kenji also becomes entangled in an online war when a stranger begins destroying the virtual reality online world he is a moderator for. Things escalate from there in both dome"

"Another movie that I wanted to see for years, but didn't see it until 2012. The animation was very good and I enjoy all of the characters as well. Another movie that I would add to my Blu-Ray collection. "

trippy and absurd

“I cant help but wonder what was the idea behind this movie... I try but I´m clueless nevertheless.

It fails but it´s interesting enough (the ending is way too long and boring, though) to deserve a gilty-pleasure watch while booing to the screen and hitting the fast forward when you feel it´s needed.

Better to enjoy under the effects of mild mind altering substances (i guess).” read more

"13.10.2011 Höpsö tietokonemaailma, jonkinlainen Internetin edistyneempi versio, tuntui turhalta. Olisin halunnut katsella enemmän ihmisten välistä draamaa, joka oli paljon kiinnostavampaa kuin lapsellinen mättö tietokonehahmoilla. Elokuvan sanoma sentään oli jonkin verran teknologian vastainen.
