Three of My Favorite Anime Movies In one of my previous posts”Three anime for the summer” I recommended three anime for the summer and thinking about it I realized that some people maybe don’t have the time to watch an entire series, so I thought to share a “three of my favorite anime movies” and by any means I’m not an expert when it comes to anime movies so this is just my personal opinion.
We are starting this short list with The Boy and The Beast (jap. Bakemono no Ko), which follows the lonely orphan Kyuta as he runs away from his relatives, and after he gets lost he enters a magical entrance to this fantasy world called “Jutengai”, which is inhabited by humanoid beats. While wandering around Jutengai he witnessed a fight between two powerful rivals, one of them is Kumatetsu who wants to be the new grandmaster. After some incidents he ends up being the apprentice of the vulgar and loud Kumatetsu while learning how to fight, their salty relationship evolves more into a father-son relationship. This movie isn’t flawless but it does have a heart, and what I mean by that is that it shows the growth of Kyuta who doesn’t trust anyone at first, we see as he opens his heart and learns to love again and the same with Kumatetsu. What was really touching about this movie is when our protagonist starts moving back and forth between Jutengai and Japan, he gets torn apart between two completely different worlds and isn’t able to make up his mind if he should go back and live as a human or should he follow his father figure to follow his footsteps.
