The Awakening of Trailblazer, Nobita and the Great Mermaid Battle, Mai Mai Miracle

The Awakening of Trailblazer: I kept nodding off half way through this movie, partly because I’m a bit unwell and because there was so much action that after excitiedly following it all for a while the novelty wore off and I just wanted to see how it would end. I did like the ELS enemy and when it *spoiler* merges completely with a ship, overwhelms Earth fighters, and merges partially with a human I thought it was pretty cool. I liked the Setsuna flashback stuff. I’m not sure why the ending went so by so fast, was so pretty, and seemed to be how life was all important. I could rewatch it to try and understand, but to be honest I just didn’t like it enough to care. Enjoyment 2/5

Nobita and the Great Mermaid Battle: very cute but I think I prefer Doraemon in manga form. Doraemon’s voice is surprisingly annoying. Always loved the cute technology ideas in this. I’d like to press a button and be a mermaid for a few hours…until the novelty wore off, or I started thinking about sushi. Dropped half way through movie, more interested in levelling my Paladin in WoW. XD

Mai Mai Miracle: Relaxed slice of life feel, post second world war setting, gentle music, really lovely art, likeable characters. So cute when they eat the alcholic chocolate! I lost interest as the plot progressed, I prefered all the cute stuff with the goldfish. Beautiful animation at the end <3 4/5
