(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

"23.11. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Mamoru Hosoda Part cyber-hacker-thriller, part romantic comedy and family drama, Summer Wars is a joyful film about a teenage math nerd and a virtual world ("Oz") programmer who gets "a summer job" pretending to be the boyfriend of a girl popular at school. As for the positives, I liked the visuals a lot - the opening sequence introducing Oz, for example, is really cool. It does an interesting job in providing cyberspace and Japanese countryside as the back"

"June 20th Seems like at the half way point they decided to throw every retarded plot point they could think of, bogging down all the good stuff from the first half. Also why was this movie just the Digimon movie?"

"I've heard many good things about Summer Wars and when I found out a friend had just bought it, I had an overreaction and it was watched. It brings up a lot of good thoughts and blends traditional versus modern/technological Japan really well. If you like anime movies at all, watch this! "

"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 d"

"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. 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 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
