About A Town Where You Live Blu-ray

A Town Where You Live contains episodes 1-12.

How far would you go for true love?

All his friends said he was just being "stupid" and "delusional," but Haruto just couldn't give up on her... Yuzuki, the girl that showed up on his doorstep one day, stole his heart the next, and then left just as abruptly as she arrived. With the faint hope of rekindling the romance they'd shared, Haruto decides to pursue her, moving away from the rural outskirts of Hiroshima to the big city of Tokyo.

However, soon after arriving, he learns that Yuzuki has seemingly moved on and has a new boyfriend. No matter how hard Haruto tries, she refuses to see him and won't tell him the reason why she left him. He could move on, as many have urged him to, but is that truly what Yuzuki wants? He could try winning her back - after all, he's already moved to the town where she lives - but how much farther will he need to go?

A rushed, predictable, but still engaging story.

by -

“A Town Where You Live” is based on a 27 volume manga from the author who wrote Suzuka. In a 12 episode series, this usually means that the show will stop partway through the story. This anime takes a different approach. The first few episodes are introductions, then it skips forward over the initial courtship. As the story progresses, they show flashbacks of major events they skipped over but, by skipping over so much content, they can provide an ending to the core relationship. In a way, this is a good thing. No waiting around for a second season that will never come. The problem is that the entire series seems rushed.







Overall, the story is good. I have to take off a star for how rushed the show felt, and for how predictable some of the plot points were (especially if you have seen Suzuka). In addition, the art is unimpressive and the sound is middling. However, it is not worth taking off another star.

Should have done my homework before this purchase

by -

Disclaimer.. I thought "Suzuka" was a poor series, filled with overused anime tropes and highly irritating characters.







Ok, So I haven't even finished this series. I am currently on episode 7 and feel no desire to keep pushing on.



I really should have done my homework and not just bought this title on a whim just to check it out.. (stream it seriously if you can).



As pointed out by a previous reviewer the story jumps around ALOT.. making it seem disconnected and rushed. The characters suffer the same flaws that "Suzuka" turned me off on. I don't have a problem with the Drama type animes (I enjoyed Rumbling Hearts) but this feels fake and forced.







Is it a bad anime? ..seriously No it's not. Far worse examples to be had. So..if you liked "Suzuka" you'll probably like this.. But if you did not.. then avoid.. 2 stars because it's not a stinker.. just not my cup of tea.

Blu Ray quality is good, the show is just really boring to me

by -

The release itself is 5 stars for darn good quality Blu Ray authoring.







1 Star for the show itself. It's... boring. It has unengaging characters that are just... boring. Not once did I feel sucked into the show, not once did I really care about what happened to or with the characters. It's slow, it's contrived, it's boring.







As another has stated, I wish I would have done some homework before buying. I'm sure there are folks who will enjoy this, but I am not one of them.

Don't Waste Your Time On This!

This show was overwhelmingly boring-a snorefest. The characters were as one-dimensional as they come, the story-oh wait did this have a story? I'm sorry I wasted the time it took to watch this. Thank god I was able to sell this to somebody so I recovered my money.
