Can’t put into words why, but I liked it
I really liked this trilogy. But it’s hard to explain why. It’s basically a movie revolving around Kurata, a traditional Japanese card game which requires listening to a poem being read and having quick reaction picking the card with the right upcoming syllable before your opponent does. Most of the time I did not quite know what was going on in the games and for a westerner it’s rather unusual, since we do not have anything comparable. But it’s interesting nonetheless and it doesn’t really matter, because what the movie is actually about is the deep friendship (and romance) between the main protagonists. The characters are all really likeable and it’s just nice and cozy to watch.
There are few movies adapted by manga that can pull of the whole action thrill. And this one nails it. The game, probably a bit odd for those of us who don’t know it, doesn’t appeal much at first. But, somehow, the movie manages to present it as thrilling as any other sports game. The action is packed and the team dynamics perfect. However, the movie centres around the game, which means that its sole focus is that and other parts of the movie, such as the romance and the friendship that faced some hardships, were overlooked. There were some hints here and there, but they are not sufficient enough to complete the picture of what happened in the past. That said, in addition, the film doesn’t really present its characters personalities and unique colours in depth. Finally, the performances were good and the movie, overall, enjoyable.
