Wolf Children Review

wolf children

What is this you ask? Why a wild post has appeared! Because there will be the weekly post tomorrow and it’s the beginning of my site, I thought I might post today!

Short Review:
Where to start…okay well here’s something: HEARTBREAKING. Okay so maybe not so heart breaking. This definitely is inspiring to those who are “coming of age” as it is said, and to those trying to establish a sense of individuality. When I say this was an amazing movie, I mean it. I sort of wish they’d base brands and series and comics on it because it really does deserve it. Wow. Just…just go watch it. Recommended!

Extension:
During her college years, Hana falls for the dashing werewolf who is soon to be the father of her daughter, Yuki, and later- a son, Ame. Soon after their son is born, the werewolf is killed. Hana is left alone with two, quickly developing, wolf children.Unfortunately, hiding the children (who rapidly change forms at random) is a difficult job, especially with prying neighbors next to the small flat/apartment. So, Hana moves them to the countryside so they can grow their own crops and eventually mix into the community when the children are more controlled and mature. Of course, when a wolf girl goes to school there’s bound to be an incident but inevitably makes friends with the victim/witness. Ame however decides to take lessons from an old fox and eventually takes a much different path. The ending is quite predictable but moving nonetheless. I hope you enjoy it!
