Remember Me | register
I was excited to know that 3 anime movies are showing in my local theaters. Out of the 3, I've watched 2 - Tiger & Bunny and Fairy Tail. I'm still deciding whether to go and watch the Naruto movie. Hmm... should I? Anyway, I shall talk about Fairy Tail movie first. Personally I really like Tiger & Bunny movie but I can't say the same about Fairy Tail movie. Since I watched Tiger & Bunny movie first and Fairy Tail movie a week later, the high quality of Tiger & Bunny animation makes Fairy Tail pale in comparison. Story: (6/10) – Fair The film revolves around a mysterious girl named Eclair who appears before Lucy. She lost all of her memories, except for the imperative that she must deliver two Phoenix Stones somewhere. The stones may spell the collapse of the magical world, and Natsu, Lucy, and the rest of the Fairy Tail guild are caught up in the intrigue. Frankly, I'm not impressed with the story. Since Mashima Hiro sensei is involved in the story writing, I was expecting more out of it. I felt that he's trying to create a grand finale but disappointingly, not only did it not look grand, it actually felt boring. I was not very touched by the ending too. Characters: (7/10) – Fairly Good There's nothing special about the new characters. The villains are also not very impressionable. Among all the characters (including the main cast), I'm most amused by Erza in the movie. (*Spoiler Alert! She actually wants to be a bride badly! LOL) Anyway, there's TOO MUCH of Lucy and that's a big turn off for me. Art/Animation: (7/10) – Fairly Good I'm more used to the animation in the anime series. The animation in the movie feels a little off and the quality is just average. The new character designs are ok, except for the yellow bird. It's not cute and it's like a Tweety Bird ripoff. Music: (7/10) – Fairly Good Frankly, I can't quite remember the themes but the impression I had wasn't too bad. Enjoyment: (6/10) – Fair To be frank, I regretted watching the movie. It was a waste of money in my opinion. Overall: (6/10) – Fair Given the quality of the story and animation, it felt more like an anime filler than a movie.
