Only Yesterday review

15 years, 2 months ago at Sep 29 19:26

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

A story about knowing and discovering oneself

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

For me this is one of Studio Ghibli's more realistic films, and it is also one of the more beautiful ones too. Not to mention underrated, in my opinion. It isn't a favourite, but I still admire it hugely and think it is very re-watchable. The story is well structured, and has a real sense of realism about it. As said, there is no visible magic or fairytale like characters, the magic is in the stor... read more

Beautiful and realistic

“For me this is one of Studio Ghibli's more realistic films, and it is also one of the more beautiful ones too. Not to mention underrated, in my opinion. It isn't a favourite, but I still admire it hugely and think it is very re-watchable. The story is well structured, and has a real sense of realism about it. As said, there is no visible magic or fairytale like characters, the magic is in the story and in how it is told. It is also quite a nostalgic story too I feel. The animation is very good, and the music is lovely. The dialogue is respectable enough, and the characters are immensely likable and never fail to engage. And as usual the voice work I have no qualms with. Overall, very beautiful film. 9/10 Bethany Cox” read more

"24.3 Takahatan aliarvostetuin elokuva ja ehkä jopa samalla miehen paras työ. Enemmän aikuiseen makuun suunnattu coming of age -tarina, jossa käsitellään studiolle epätyypillisen rohkealla tavalla naiseuden ensitaipaleita. Taekon lapsuustakaumat nostavat melkein tipan linssiin ja erityismaininta akvarellimaisen unenomaiselle piirrostyylille, joka korostaa jo valmiiksi nostalgista tunnelmaa. Pala palalta rakennettu kerrontatyyli, jossa Taekon lapsuusmuistot pulpahtavat pintaan elokuvan ede"
