  • #Piano#

  • I know what you're thinking.

  • What a ridiculous title...for a film

  • and for this review

  • but I promise that I won't be eating your organs in any minutes or less

  • however I hope it will only take me 5 to convince you to see this film.

  • It may be pretty predictable in places,

  • it panders to a lot of cliches...

  • ...

  • and it tugs on the dramatic side at times

  • but its overarching message is one I've been pondering since leaving the cinema

  • ...

  • what does it mean to be alive?

  • And if I throw that question over to you what would you say?

  • I'd say this film does a damn good job of making you question that answer.

  • My name is Isla and this is my review of Studio Voln's I Want to Eat Your Pancreas

  • ...

  • If you've read the manga or the light novel or seen the live action

  • then you'll understand the meaning behind this films name

  • but I hadn't seen any prior material before going into the anime

  • so I assumed it was either about a pancreatic disease

  • or the beautiful artwork was a clever marketing attempt

  • to hide a film of the cannibalistic variety,

  • well it was the first

  • but our secondary protagonist Sakura makes no attempts to hide how much she enjoys eating animal organs

  • however she goes through great lengths to hide her illness from everyone.

  • #Slow piano#

  • Until one day our nameless main character finds her diary

  • that she's called 'Living with Dying'

  • Sakura decides to tell him everything

  • and he promises to keep her disease a secret

  • but their shared knowledge brings them closer together

  • and the film follows their growing relationship in Sakura's final months of living.

  • #Emotive piano continues#

  • Death is the ever growing, over arching shadow that permeates this movie.

  • It cuts through each sweet, funny scene that our protagonists share

  • as the knowledge of Sakura's imminent end is around every corner

  • making the entire movie feel bittersweet.

  • But the sadness is always balanced against humour

  • and the way the extroverted Sakura bounces off our introverted MC makes for some shared lovely scenes

  • and those moments are a mix in terms of animation.

  • There are points I was struck by how genuinely life like it felt

  • such as the way Sakura thumbs through a book

  • or that moment in the rain

  • ...

  • but just when the animation is reaching its peak

  • it switches to still shot montages that while well drawn

  • take us out of the animation

  • going from feeling like a theatrical cinematic experience to a TV Movie.

  • However if you closed your eyes for a few moments

  • the quality of voice acting is what shines through -

  • especially Lynn's

  • she speaks chemistry without visuals

  • and is able to portray Sakura's cheerful personality and underlying sadness all at once

  • notably during the fireworks scene.

  • ...

  • This moment is I Want to Eat Your Pancreas's triumph piece

  • and is set in a place that is so very dear to my heart,

  • it gave me goosebumps,

  • made me wish we were heading for a happier ending

  • and really highlights the talents of not only our leads

  • but the animation staff,

  • the composer Hiroko Sebu

  • and the unlikely writer director of this film Ushijima Shin`ichirou.

  • #Soft emotive piano#

  • For a man who has only ever directed episodic action anime

  • Ushijima is a surprisingly emotive writer,

  • translating the novels saddest moments into beautiful animated snapshots.

  • But he's still a work in progress,

  • the films final half runs on a little long

  • and could have had a more devastating impact if 20 minutes had been cut off the end.

  • ...

  • Yet throughout its almost 2 hour run there are a few smattering moments of brilliance

  • that made me think...given time

  • Ushijima could develop a style that sweeps the audience off their feet.

  • And while this doesn't have the emotional euphoria of a Shinkai film

  • or the imagination found in Hosadas

  • or the heart in Yamadas

  • it does shine brightly enough to move an audience to tears

  • and powerful enough to deliver its message -

  • finding meaning in being alive.

  • #Soft Guitar#

  • While I Want to Eat Your Pancreas isn't quite the powerhouse that it could have been

  • it's still more than worth a watch

  • and is full of small surprises

  • the most notable in our Nameless Protagonist -

  • he is without a name for a reason so keep that in mind as you watch this film to the very end

  • don't skip the credits and don't skip this anime

  • because I'd like to leave you with three final point

  • first my recommendation that it is certainly the underdog anime film of 2018,

  • second I'd like to assure you that the ridiculous name goes on to make sense

  • and I'd lastly with a quote from Sakura that I can't stop thinking about.

  • Everyday is worth the same no matter how you choose to spend it.

  • So spend yours exactly how you want to.
