This is the highest peak of Chinese animation now

This work is a Chinese web animation theater movie.
Directed by MTJJ Kito, which will be screened in Japan in September 2019 with subtitles.
In November 2020, as a dubbed version, “The future I choose”
It has been re-screened with a subtitle.

This review also includes spoilers.

Woods

The movie begins with the scene of “deforestation”.
“Xiao Hei”, a fairy in the shape of a kitten who lived peacefully in the forest
Such a place for him disappears.
The production of this opening scene does not dare to describe “human beings”.

Oguro doesn’t know what happened suddenly.
Suddenly the trees are knocked down and lose their place of residence.
It is a scene that impresses fantastically by not depicting humans
I feel something like “Ghibli”.

Although many Chinese animations are broadcast in Japan,
Most of them are “low budget” and have a taste of Japanese anime and manga.
If you say it without muddying the words, it’s like a second decoction, if you say it straight, it’s like a pakuri
I have to say that there are many works.

However, this work is not pakuri. It’s not a parody.
Feeling “respect” and “homage” to Japanese animation,
The maker liked Ghibli and wanted to create an atmosphere like Ghibli.
You can feel the love of the producer and the passion for anime from the beginning.

Especially the depiction of the background feels particular.
While drawing natural scenes such as forests fantastically like Ghibli,
By drawing realistically on the streets with man-made objects where people live
The picture is sharp, and the forest, which is the place of fairies, and the city, which is the place of humans.
The atmosphere is clearly drawn.

Although the character design has a slightly deep “edge”,
Clothes that are cute and can feel “Chinese”
There is a solid atmosphere and you can feel the charm of Chinese animation
It has a background and character design.

This work is different from other Chinese animation in the scene of about 5 minutes at the beginning
It makes me feel firmly on the side watching that.

enemy

Humans are enemies for the main character, Xiao Hei.For him young
Humans who have no choice but to live in the city after robbing their place are evil,
Desperately robbing humans of food to live, hiding from humans,
Sometimes you have to fight humans.
My friends help me while I was trying to survive lonely even though I was young.

That is “Fusy”.
The same fairy, stronger than Xiao Hei, and a dependable adult
He has given me a place where I can live with peace of mind.

He’s childish, sometimes in the form of a cat, sometimes in the form of a strange human
The frolicking appearance is cute, and the acting of “Kana Hanazawa” who is acting
Together, it’s a little cheeky but childish, even though it’s castrated.
You can feel the charm of the main character, “Xiao Hei”.

You can live in peace with the same fairies, eat rice, and sleep with peace of mind.
It’s a place he finally got.
Whereabouts is also the theme of this work.

While thinking for myself by a child fairy named “Xiao Hei”
This work is such that you get a place through various events
The story is on the axis.
At the same time, “values” are drawn.

Human

However, even though I got a place to stay, humans attack again.
He relentlessly aims for “Fusy”, and Xiao Hei also fights desperately
You will be separated from Fusie.

The development around here is a little steep due to the scale, so with Xiao Hei a little more
Depiction of interaction with Fusie and digging into relationships
There is a part that I feel I wanted, so as a sense of the viewer
Because humans will attack about 5 minutes after getting a place to stay
I feel that the relationship with “Fusy” is a little weak.

Although Xiao Hei was captured by the human “Mugen”,
Mugen treats Xiao Hei as if he were a selfish child,
Travel to take him to the mansion.

A trip with a person I hate, why I try to take myself to the hall
I do not know the purpose of Mugen, and I recognize that he is a human being and an enemy who attacked Fusie
Xiao Hei tries to escape many times.

Even if it becomes a serious development from time to time, it is because it is a child of Xiao Hei
Innocence creates a comical comedy scene,
The atmosphere isn’t heavy, and it’s not a deliberate gag.
Xiao Hei’s childish behavior that makes you laugh naturally and giggles
This work is made into a light work in a good way.

trip

The travel scene is a bit long, but that length is necessary for Xiao Hei.
The viewer is also Mugen’s purpose, and Fusie’s attacking the same fairy behind the journey
Because I do not understand the intention well and it is drawn from the perspective of Xiao Hei
It is difficult to grasp the “situation”.

Who is the enemy, who is the ally, who is justice, who is evil.
There is no depiction of such an easy-to-understand standing position in this work.
Each one works with its own justice and values,
In a sense, everyone is a child and has no fixed values.
It ’s a friend.

Adult humans and fairies think their values ​​are correct,
I am trying to convey that value to my child, Xiao Hei.
Mugen, a human being, escapes many times during a long journey.
While catching, he has a cool attitude but is kind to somewhere.

The development that suddenly begins to teach Xiao Hei how to use “power”
Although it is a little steep, the elements such as “ki” and “art” are
From the human Mugen who feels Chinese and Xiao Hei has the same attributes
Learn how to use power and how to fight.

Besides that, he teaches me many things.
The specialness of one’s power, the structure of human society, human food and culture,
There are people in the city who live in harmony with humans and get along well.
Both fairies and humans have various values, and the various values
Mugen shows “Xiao Hei”.

The interaction between the two is very funny.
Xiao Hei also initially distrusts and doubts the human Mugen.
However, with the depiction of the relationship that gradually opens the heart to Mugen during the journey
The charm of Mugen’s cool but missing character,
The depictions of these two people’s daily lives and trips are smiling and grinning.

Especially the reaction of Xiao Hei and Mugen in the meal scene
Expressing the deliciousness of food, though simple
Two people who make it delicious and sometimes unpleasant are adorable.

Fusie

His purpose is simple. Humans who destroy nature and rob them of their whereabouts,
He hates such human beings and creates a “fairy-only place”
I’m trying to make it.
If Xiao Hei doesn’t meet Mugen, he agrees with Fusie’s values,
I may have lent my power at my own will.

However, his encounter with Mugen has shaken his values.
Dodge the word Mugen and learn various things,
By knowing human society and being told “gratitude” to people other than him
His values ​​fluctuate more.

Some fairies have a good impression on humans.
The organization called “Kan” to which Mugen belongs is
An organization where fairies aim to coexist with humans
They hide themselves as fairies and are trying to become familiar with and coexist with human society.

Certainly humans have taken away their place.However, the fairies in the hall
Even so, we are trying to create a place for ourselves among humans.
The values ​​of Mugen and others “Kan” are correct, and the values ​​of Fusie are also correct in a sense.
Neither can be said to be evil.

The relationship between nature and humans has been depicted many times in Ghibli.
Princess Mononoke and Heisei Tanuki Battle Pom Poko have been drawn in such works.
I can feel that this work is trying to draw the theme in its own way.

And the choice is entrusted to Xiao Hei, the main character of the story.

the term

However, because the original is Chinese, and there is also a problem with the scale.
The “terms” are a little difficult to understand. They use ninjutsu-like techniques,
Each has its own attributes, the main character and Mugen are gold,
Fusie is described as a tree, but it’s a little confusing.

If you think the term “area” has come up, say “spirit area”
It’s a little difficult to understand because words with similar terms appear.
If you have some basic knowledge of battle action manga and anime
Although there are many parts that can be understood somehow,
Some people may be confused when they are suddenly told about their attributes, spirits, and techniques.

Underlying is “NARUTO”, and when you read “NARUTO”
To some extent, there is a part that can be seen while translating terms in my head,
In particular, the technique used by “Fusy” is the technique of a certain character from NARUTO.
It’s a little worrisome, but it’s cute (laughs)

There are a lot of characters, but I can’t say that I’m good at it.
There are many characters who have almost no digging and almost no turn.
Even though there are many attractive characters, how to use them
The explanation of terms may seem sloppy,
It’s a waste.

The way to choose

At the end of the game, Xiao Hei reunites with Fusie.
Xiao Hei also knows that his power is needed for Fusie’s purpose,
I also know the circumstances of Fusie. That is why he asks him.
Maybe it was because I wanted my strength that helped me.
It’s a pure and innocent question.

Fusie apologizes but robs Xiaohei of his power for his own purposes.
Fusie can’t pull back anymore, for his own purposes,
I can’t choose the means for my justice.
I know it’s bad and I don’t really like it
He can’t stop because of his companions who believed in him.

Even if I knew it would kill Xiao Hei
He can’t stop anymore. “Takahiro Sakurai”‘s acting
Coupled with the character depiction of Fusie who is even melancholy
His depiction of his values, which cannot be said to be wrong, stands out.

Battle scene

The last battle scene is especially overwhelming.The battle scene of this work is
It is drawn with a fairly high quality.In particular
Regarding “camera angle”, by projecting the character with “three-dimensional camera angle” which is not often done in Japanese animation
It sublimates 2D drawing into a 3D-like three-dimensional expression.

Exchange of techniques and techniques while moving around at high speed,
Although it is undeniable that it is “NARUTO”, it is a character that moves around
The many depictions of the technique are breathtaking.

Mugen fighting for Xiao Hei even in a situation where he can’t win
Fusie tries to push through her justice.
At the point of trying to push through my justice at the expense of Xiao Hei
It may have been decided that Fusie would lose.

sorry

At the end of the game, there is a part of opportunism or lack of explanation,
Xiao Hei, who was about to lose his life, is fighting
It’s a little difficult to understand, although it will be explained later, such as the reason for coming.

However, he still lost the place only for the fairies with his own power and will.
Even if I can’t use my special power again, I think it’s okay
The lacrimal glands are stimulated as if the values ​​were set and grew.

There is no longer Xiao Hei who had a grudge against humans, he can coexist,
There is a way for me to get along like Mugen and for fairies and humans to coexist.
I believe. All the events are over and questions remain in him.

“I wonder if Fusie was a bad person.”

When. Fusie apologized to Xiao Hei at the very end.
That is why Xiao Hei remains questionable.
The future that Fusie drew and the future that he tried to build is for fairies
Maybe it wasn’t wrong.

“Mugen” gently spoke to such a question,
At the end with Xiao Hei trying to follow the same path as “Mugen”
It was a work that involuntarily invited warm tears.

General comment: What Japanese anime movies have forgotten

Overall, it’s a work that feels simple and interesting.
The drawbacks are the large number of characters, lack of explanation of terms, and difficulty in understanding.
Although there is, the element of coexistence of nature and human beings that Ghibli once drew,
In the form of respect, not pakuri
It is a work that is drawn like China.

The good thing about this work is that the main character has a strong appeal.
The main character, Xiao Hei, is cute, cheeky, but childish.
Because he is the main character, he decides his values ​​while hesitating.
Finally, the flow of finding the answer and your own place by your own will seems to be the main character
It’s full of charm, and it’s a warm story because he’s the main character.

The drawing is also really wonderful, and the well-drawn background is
Sometimes fantastic and sometimes realistic
The feeling of reality and fantasy are switched by the depiction of the background,
While making the character design feel Chinese
Each person has a solid and attractive design.

Although it is undeniable that the battle scene has a sense of respect for NARUTO,
The battle scenes that move around with a bold camera angle look great on the screen.
A spectacular action scene is drawn from the beginning to the end.

Some people may have “prejudice” because it is a Chinese animation,
On the contrary, this work has a “children’s perspective” that is not found in current Japanese anime movies.
It’s a work I cherish. That’s why I want children to see it
Adults can also enjoy this work, but like the old Ghibli, this work for “children”
It is a work that adults see and feel that they want to see.

Personal impression: After a long time

Most of the recent Japanese anime movies are aimed at high teens to some extent.
Your name is especially noticeable after the hit, so-called youth anime movie.

Recently, “Sumikko Gurashi” may be said to be a work for children,
Anpanman, Doraemon, Crayon Shin-chan, Pretty Cure,
Except for those things, it seems to be aimed at elementary school children or kindergarten children
The number of anime movies has really decreased.

The anime was something that kids watched. Although the prejudice still remains,
On the contrary, that prejudice has diminished and the otaku population has increased.
The number of works for “children” has decreased.

If you look at this work just because you are watching such a Japanese anime movie situation
A work that was once made for children by Japanese anime movies
It was a work that reminded me of something I had forgotten.

At the same time, I feel a wonder about Chinese animation (laughs).
The Japanese anime industry can’t be helped either.
