When I seen the trailer for this movie, I expected it to be a movie with great animation as well as a compelling storyline with relatable or interesting characters, which isn't the case. The animation is overall beautiful with realistic movements, smooth movements, and extreme detail in every frame, however, the style of the human faces is very disturbing and creepy as the eyes of each human/ human-like character are huge with realistic looking mouths. When watching the movie, you get used to the faces for the most part, however, certain scenes in the film make the characters look very creepy and inhuman which can be hard to watch. So the animation gets an 9/10. I watched the English dub of the film, which was a very good dub. The only time that dubs are not very good are when the same voice actors from other anime films dub characters with the same voice, most of the voice actors in this film are new at voice acting and are actually pretty good at it, with some only being in a few live action tv series, while others are new at acting in general. The voice acting is 10/10. Now the reason why this film is did so bad in my opinion is for its terrible storyline. The beginning of the film is ok, where it shows Ruka, who is a preteen that hurts a girl who was rude to her, this causes her to get emotional and to go to the aquarium where her dad works. There, she meets a human boy named Umi, who grew up with sea life with another boy named Sora. Ruka eventually meets both Ruka and Sora and talks to them, however, after this moment I completely got lost in the storyline, with so much happening in a short amount of time. Sora disappears after giving something to Ruka, afterwards Umi stops speaking and eventually disappears also. After all of this happens, a whole bunch of animated fish and whales gather around Ruka as she says something about being the universe. After this she is found by her parents in the water, it then shows her walking across the street like she did in the beginning of the film, she sees someone and guess who it is? Is it Umi? Is it Sora? No!!! It's the rude girl that Ruka hurry in the beginning of the film. I have no idea what the symbolism is or even if there is any, The middle and end of the film run the whole movie, atleast in Your Name, the two main characters see each other at the end, but no, they had to show us the girl from the beginning, I can't be the only person who wanted to see Umi and/ or Sora come back. The storyline in this film is 2/10. Overall, if the storyline was better than this would've been a good movie, but sadly it wasn't so The movie isn't.
