i hate those posts that are like “you’re beautiful.” or “i love you and i’m proud of you for living another day” because they’re so. general. how can u say you love everyone or that you find everyone beautiful. what does it actually accomplish. if you are trying to cheer someone up do something personal for them dont just make a vague post omg
Just finished watching Studio Ghibli’s “Ocean Waves”, also known as “I Can Hear the Sea”. It was pleasant to watch but this film is comparatively underwhelming next to other Ghibli works. This likely has plenty to do with the fact that Ocean Waves was made for television and was the first Ghibli film directed by someone other than Miyazaki or Takahata. Additionally, this film marks the first work done primarily by Ghibli’s younger generation of animators.
I see this and “Only Yesterday” somewhat as parallels- quiet young adult dramas and coming of age stories- and the latter ends up being the stronger film. This isn’t a must-see in animation by any means, but if you’re a completionist like me, then this film, barely running over an hour and not demanding an incredible amount of attention, shouldn’t be hard to get through. It is important to note, however, that like Only Yesterday, this film does not have an official dub.
