Has anyone seen this?

I enjoyed it as a concept but I found the MC a bit of a letdown. I understand she acted her age-- willing to lose her sense of self over a boy she liked. But it wasn't relatable in any way. The way she was up in his face at school was obnoxious. He could have been polite about letting her down. But instead he just bullies her more. And likewise she was unwilling to take a hint. These characters have zero chemistry.

The ending was terrible. I don't think it sent a healthy message.

 

That he suddenly decided he loves her enough to follow her into death and risk his very soul for her after another cat tells him what's going on is absurd.

There was opportunity for so much more depth and sympathy for the characters, but it just wasn't working for me. So I found it disappointing. 

What did you guys think?

There were definitely parts that were offputting & the characters weren’t endearing.

@Wedgy It's definitely a disappointment to see an anime try so hard to follow a plot and make it as relatable and realistic as possible. But when it's oblivious as it was, and she still felt for it, it almost defeats the purpose of a decent plot. It's pretty offputting to see a male harass and bully someone, let alone a female to the extent that he did. 

To say that they weren't meant to be would be a huge understatement.

It's unrelatable and unrealistic.

The way of going about it for them may work in an anime world, but in a realistic environment,  they've set themselves up for failure.

My brother and I started this on Netflix and literally went "Is this a studio ghibli movie" and I was like LORD I HOPE NOT.

I thought the concept it of was interesting, the lore behind the cat spirit world is something I could get behind. Does kakashi turn into a cat with his anbu mask?

The issue was the was basically just a stalker movie. The girl stalked the boy at school, out of it. She spent all her time watching him so of course she was the only one that really understood him. If the movie spend maybe just a bit more time exploring her family and her place in it, and maybe have her mother(s) play a bigger role into her romance life rather than just two women bickering over the same child and husband. I don't know if it was the right call as that might be perceived as more realistic having a kid just turn her back on her family and lose herself in her romantic interest to escape her emotions toward her family, and the adults being too caught up in their own mess to really care for the kid. But instead of using that to deliver a message the movie was like "dats how it be sometimes" and left it at that. I think this movie had a few good intentions, but lacked a lot of delivery and better character development.

      Note: Some of the content like most of the content may contain spoilers, you have been warned.
      The question that I realized is:
      In "Darling in the Franxx" in episode 24 when Nana and Hachi were on the hill Hachi mentioned that
      I tried to add the things to cover up the spoilers but I don't know how.

      So, if you've been watching Aggretsuko, you can probably recognise how relatable it is. The characters are all a part of this adult 9-5 ecosystem. I can't help but root for Retsuko and her quest to find happiness and fulfillment in her life.
      Currently, we've made it to season 3. I have to get something off my chest here. So-- spoilers ahead.
      The whole dynamic between Inui, Haida, and Retsuko. I don't feel good about it. This entire time, the series has been spotlighting Retsuko making hard decisions for herself. FFS she has turned down life as a billionaire's sugar baby and rockstar fame-- both whilst finding herself in dire financial straits. It's also been, on the side, building up Haida to be the underdog who is bound to win the girl in the end.
      I just can't help but feel like Retsuko doesn't want that. Or maybe she does? She's turned him down twice. Inui was totally into him, and it can only be assumed Haida was interested to some degree. I love that Inui had grace in finding out his heart wasn't in it. But where does that leave Haida and Retsuko? He basically forced himself in at the end of the season there. I'll give him points for the confidence, but Retsuko literally told him she wasn't okay and didn't feel safe.
      So where does this go from here? The season ended on what might have been a cliffhanger. Do you think she will give things a try with Haida? Will she stay or ultimately end things with him? In a narrative sense, I expect the writers will give the prize to Haida. But damn it if that doesn't leave me disappointed. I guess I just don't want her to 'settle'. It seems like the wrong outcome for a character who has such big dreams.
