Personal Opinion

I watched this movie a couple years back with my little brother using English subs, as I didn’t know any Japanese at the time, so if you know English you can definitely watch this regardless of your Japanese level.

I really do like this movie, I can’t think of a single bad thing to say about it, it was consistently good, and had a great and fitting end. Despite the topic it deals with, I don’t think it’s “edgy” or overbearing, it felt like it had just the right amount. So if the topic isn’t a trigger for you, I think it’ll be a genuine good watch.

There isn’t any excessive gore, or that much at all. It’s basically just the concept of what happens that makes it something to watch out for, there is blood, but not excessive, and nothing disgusting.

Anyway, really good watch. One of my favorite movies in general.
