About Like the Clouds Like the Wind Blu-ray

Like the Clouds, Like the Wind is based on the award-winning novel by Kenichi Sakemi and features character designs by Studio Ghibli's Katsuya Kondo.

The country of Sokan is in turmoil. Following the death of the Emperor, a power struggle over the line of succession ensues. To cement the crown prince's rule, he must find a suitable bride. And so, the hunt for a new empress begins!

Ginga is a straightforward, lively country girl who joins the competition for the emperor's hand. Her earnest innocence shocks and reinvigorates the denizens of the palace. But can one girl's optimistic spirit help to save a kingdom facing threats both from within and without?

Liked the Comedy, Disliked the Tragedy

Well,... no, not really as it turns out, not in this particular case. At least not until the coda of the film, after too darn many of the main characters have died.

This is definitely one of the weirdest Japanese mixtures of comedy and tragedy that I've ever seen, that IMHO fails to connect the two into a coherent story. At least said story is understandable I'll admit, but going from laugh-out-loud comedy to stacks-of-dead-bodies tragedy just doesn't work very well.

It was fine (Not bad but not too great)

by

I originally got this as a gift, so I had no idea of what this movie was about and so I was going into it blind. As it started out, it was fine, but as it kept going, it just stayed fine. Not bad but not too great. I wasn’t bored by it and I understood what was going on for the most part. It did have it’s moments and I will say I was curious on where the movie was heading. But by the end, I just felt fine. This movie didn’t waste my time, but it didn’t really add much to my anime experience. Honestly, this really wasn’t my kind of movie, but it can be someone else's. Recommended if you like 90s anime set in the 17th century.
