Yesterday, I was looking up for new recommendation on Netflix (since COVID-19 started to spread again in my country, I’ve got nothing to do..) I found Hello World movie animation with the total length of 1 hours 33 minutes. It is about a teenage boy and a man claiming to be his future self who came to the past to let the boy save his lover. To be honest, there weren’t much reviews about this anime both on blog reviews and twitter feeds. Today I made a review for anyone who’ve seen the title on Netflix but they hesitate to watch. This contains no spoilers, feel free to read it!
Hello World is a sci-fi animation with unforeseen plot twists. Yes, I intently wrote plot twists with an ‘s’ because at the end of it, I was like “Wow, this is beyond my expectation.” The storyline is well-made. I watched it without seeing the trailer and my mind uttered the word ‘wow’ for countless of times throughout the entire movie. After I finished the movie, there was plenty of conclusions in my mind. I had to look up for the clear answers of my questions about the movie. Somehow everyone has different ideas. We perceived it in various conclusions which made me feel more impressed about the storyline.
The visualisation is very unique. If you watch it, you will see the similar visualisation as in idol anime. I think it’s quite great and I enjoyed the movie very much. However, some people don’t like it. As I looked through comments on internet, many people commented that the plot is brilliant, but the visuals drops it away.
Lastly, the theme song is masterpiece. I found this randomly on Spotify. So when I heard this in the film, I was like, “Wait, I knew this song.”
