A wonderful adventure for adults

I gonna say, this is my first review in IMDb.

The background and view of the story is amazing. Limited by the discription of protagnist, some supporting characters are some sort of plate. I was really touched by Emily and long for more stories of her and the "reality Girl?" should be added more details (my problems?). The face of her when looking mum and A and her final behavior is quite deep and inspiring.

Good painting style espeacially in the fantasy parts. I don't like too much motto in lines, that's why I said for adults NO.1; NO.2 the movie offers a new perspective for adults to understand children and the set of mum's dog is beneficial; NO.3 it occurs to me some plots in a horror movie, I have forgetten the title, and COCO about the memory of ancestos, which is also about forget.

Falls into the rather unforunate category of children's movies.

I just watched a new anime kid's movie on Netflix called The Imaginary. It's about a little girl and her imaginary friend who are threatened by someone who has lived for hundreds of years by devouring children's imaginary friends. I think kid's movies can be broken into two types. There are Miyazaki's films, which are the best. They were made because they had to be made. They were a compulsive expression of the artistic mind behind them and are not restricted to a juvenile viewing public. Then there are kid's movies that were made simply to be a kid's movie and make a buck from the kid audience. They range from utter trash like The Goonies to okay movies like The Imaginary. It has some good ideas in it and I guess it is worth a watch.

Flawed, yet visually and splendid concept from Studio Ponic

Studio Ponic ain't no Studio Ghibli for sure but it's visual atmosphere and interesting concept does wave away a mighty blast and engagement for children and families. Filled with amazing animation, character designs, and colorful structures, the concept about children's imagination and the allegory surrounding them is interesting and while it's writing is convoluted, it's ambitious direction holds up and carries away with magic and some spark.

The characters and settings are interesting but I found myself being more invested with the supporting characters rather than the main lead and I wish the movie had a bit more focus on the supporting characters instead. Alongside with some great voice performances, dialogue, and pacing.

All in all, this isn't going to be the same as Ghibli but I am looking forward to see what Ponic offers next.
