Just came back from watching this. It was honestly not that much better than any individual anime episode. 67 minutes long which could have been much shorter. I'll share some of my thoughts
60 fps slow-walking the movie Hanekawa and Shinobu fanservice A lot of talking like always but the Hanekawa-Araragi conversation was the only interesting one A lot of French The character designs are a bit odd Hanekawa and Shinobu are the only heroines who make appearances Oshino Meme is badass The whole movie was basically just shaft being shaft
I don't know enough about movie direction to have an opinion of that.
I hadn't really been keeping up with news on this movie.
Quite disappointing actually. I'm still looking forward to the other parts (Part 2 this summer apparently) but if this film in itself was just uninteresting.
I just saw it today too.
I thought it was amazing. Oshino was a badass, Shinobu was super cute, Araragi was awesome.
It looked much better than any anime episode too.
Yeah the cliffhanger fucking sucks but we knew it was coming and almost everyone has already read the story anyways.
I think it was indeed "shaft being shaft", but then again that's why I went to see it. If you don't like shaft then why even watch any monogatari in the first place?
I'm going again next weekend.
I just don't think it's necessary when each is only about 60 minutes.
I think two would have been acceptable but like this especially the first one suffers from lacking content which of course is annoying for those who are unfamiliar with the source material.
From what I have read some Japanese reviews were saying that if anything it felt packed for a 60 minute film and because of the amount of stuff in it felt more like a full length feature.
Yeah it did feel like a full length feature.
I also was very upset about the fact that they decided to split it into 3 movies, but after seeing the first I'm glad they did. It feels like I'm savoring every moment of the story. It feels good after the 6 year wait or so.
Yeah some parts were not as action packed, but that's fine. Nothing was rushed. It had somber moments, and tense moments, and fun moments.
I understand that it may be kind of strange for those unfamiliar with the novel, but those people can get rekt
2ch seat counters counted 132k seats for Kizu, which should come out to about 280 million yen week 1. Yokai Watch had a strong Sunday, so it'll probably fall behind that and Star Wars though.
Araragi wakes up on a beach with a red sea washing up, blue sky in the background, sat on top of Senjougahara strangling here. Senjougahara looks up and says Kimochi Warui. The film ends.
It's Oshino, Araragi and Shinobu in the cram school after Oshino saves Araragi from the 3 vamp hunters.
Oshino tells them that he'll help them out and go negotiate with the vamp hunters.
I don't know about your country but the only cinema I have experienced where it is acceptable to make large amounts noise is in the USA. In Europe in my experience everyone is generally as quiet as is reasonable to expect perhaps besides laughing at funny parts of a film.
>laughing at funny parts of a film.
Here in Germany you literally couldn't hear the fucking movie at times because everybody was laughing so loud at Inside Out.
It got pretty annoying sometimes.
I hope it's not too loud when Kizu is here.
Hanekawa and Shinobu fanservice
A lot of French
The character designs are a bit odd
Hanekawa and Shinobu are the only heroines who make appearances
Oshino Meme is badass
Sounds like someone didnt read the book
