Summer Wars

Type: Not an actual war

u0qyc
Synopsis: Men are easy. This has been established. Take in point the Kenji Koiso, who gets roped into going to a family reunion by this pretty girl in his school. It’s obviously very awkward to visit another family, especially when the media labels you a digital terrorist. On the plus side, you do get to go on Digimon-esque adventures with your future in-laws.

Pros: This straight up gave me Digimon flashbacks. In fact, I think this had the same plot as the first Digimon movie, e.g., a program goes virus and threatens the digital world. But even though the digital world stuff is awesome to look at, the real strenght of the movie was the portrayal of the family. The family felt real. I could point to a few a saw, “I have an uncle like that!” The combination of characters and their familiarity with one another made you feel like the protagonist did. You were a stranger looking in, then slowly becoming one of them.

Cons: Story wise, there’s not really a negative. I mean, you could argue that the main character becomes marginalized as the story plays out, but I like to think he just becomes part of the larger family unit. But that’s really is. This is a great movie that you can watch with anyone.

Watch it?: This and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Talk about a double act.

MVP: King Kazama

I love his design.

Best moment: The line, “Are you Man enough to date by granddaughter?” (I’m using that later on)
