Movie Reviews

'This is the story of a curse, and how it was broken'
S. Samraoui | UK | 07/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"AIR is without a doubt, the most beautiful anime I've ever seen. And I've seen a lot of anime. The animation: blessed by the legendary Kyoto Ani studios, AIR is a stunning visual piece with sweeping backgrounds and gorgeously crisp and original character designs. Everything is beautiful, from Misuzu's golden hair blowing in the summer breeze to the stills of the sun setting in a reddish-purple sky, its an aesthetic masterpiece and the eye candy will keep you entertained throughout. The soundtrack: perfectly crafted to inspire visions of a summer's day, the music sweeps the viewer along in its own quiet, poignant way. Most memorable is the piano track called 'Summer Lights'; from the very first episode you just know that sweet little tune will stay in your memory forever. Worthy of mention is the vocalist LIA, who provides the haunting opening theme, the uplifting ending theme and the tear jerking insert song Aozora-her angelic vocals send shivers down my spine every time. The characters: even the supporting cast stole my heart in this anime, although they weren't fleshed out as well as they could have been. However it was Misuzu, Yukito and their ancestral counterparts that really stole my heart once the main arc of the story sets in. Not to spoil anything-but the ending is beautiful, if heart wrenching. The story: AIR is a tale of innocence, hope, and a love that transcends time, all told during one fateful summer where a Misuzu, a lonely young school girl finds a friend in a travelling puppeteer named Yukito who is searching for 'the winged girl waiting in the sky' that his mother told him of. But supernatural events from their past lives are catching up to them, and this summer might just be their chance to break the cycle of doomed love and sorrow that has lasted for a thousand years. Worthy of every good word ever said about it, AIR is truly a masterpiece, and if you enjoy beautiful meaningful anime such as Spirited Away and Rahxephon you will undoubtedly enjoy this."
A modern epic masterpiece
Archmage Ryokosha | 08/23/2007

"AIR is one of those rare anime where nothing disappoints. As other reviewers, I've also seen a lot of anime, and find few that can stun me on all levels as AIR continues to do with each watching. Breathtaking animation, hauntingly magical music throughout the opening, closing and background songs, and a story that so enthralls time seems to stop when watching it unfold.

The tale told throughout AIR is so wonderful that I cannot truly say more then has been said in other reviews for fear of spoiling it for others, so I will only echo that AIR is truly the sweepingly epic romantic fantasy others have said, one that defies time itself, and one which is worthy of more praise then words alone are capable of expressing. Truly AIR should not be missed by those longing for a beautiful epic story."

"Ok, this is such a good anime, I can watch it over and over again. AIR is about a guy named Yukito, who is a traveling puppeteer. He is looking for the girl in the sky while on his journeys, and in one town he makes friends with a young girl named Misuzu. Yukito stays with her and her 'guardian' and takes care of her sometimes :P Misuzu tells Yukito about some strange dreams that happen, and Yukito thinks they are connected to the girl in the sky. Yukito makes other friends too, like Kano and Minagi, oh and Potato (sp?) as well :) Yukito helps his friends to get though ruff times and shares happy ones with them too!"
