I'll start right away by saying that I liked the adventure Japanese animated series called "Cross Game". This is not Sami's best animated creature that I have ever watched, but still, it is pleasant and interesting in its own way. It was a little unclear to determine the main genre of the animated series, it is clear that there is a roll call from several genre groups, but still. Literally from the very first episode, the storyline has changed so dramatically that it is difficult to understand what will be broadcast in the story further. Literally from the very first episode, I thought that this cartoon would be completely dramatic, that, even in spite of further development, the plot would still revolve around the sudden death of the heroine in the first episode, as if returning the viewer to what had happened. But I was mistaken, because already with the beginning of the second episode, it became clear that the essence of the cartoon is to reveal to the viewer the truth of life, which says that in order not to happen in everyone's life, you must continue to live and continue to strive for your dream. Not often seen in a Japanese animation creation, as much morality, as much truth and as much life as there is in this one. This cartoon is overnight, so simple and light, and at the same time so strong and serious. In the very center of this story, there is an ordinary boy who is in fifth grade.He is an only child in his family, and his parents are ordinary middle-class people who own a sports equipment store. Frequent customers in this store are one family who runs the nearest cafe, the Tsukishima family. Four girls grow up in it, one of whom is the same age as our protagonist, showing sympathy in his direction. Parents are happy with the friendship of their offspring, and believe that fate itself is given so that their children in the future will tie the knot with their lives, especially since they were even born on the same day. But it is not for nothing that they say that it is better not to plan your life in advance, because a lot can change. So it happened in this story, the girl Wakaba, who loved the main character so much, suddenly died, which radically changed the lives of these two families. Wakaba has a sister of the same age who was always jealous of her beloved sister's friendship with Ko, and what happened to her sister greatly shocked the girl. She has always played baseball, unlike her deceased sister who preferred swimming, and she is angry that Ko Kitamura is also interested in baseball, she believes that he has no chance of becoming successful in this sport. And even if the boy is making progress in this matter, she will never admit it. Ko Kitamura, does not give up on his dream of becoming a successful slugger, and he will succeed, and life will show how the relationship between the main characters, who are so keen on sports, will develop. In general, this story reveals to the viewer the story of the relationship between the two families, whether they can survive the grief and remain on good terms. Most of the events taking place in the animated series "Cross Game" develop at the level of sports interests. And the main protagonists of this story are the boy Ko Kitamura and the girl Aoba. Kitamura will train in secret, wanting to learn to play like Aoba, and she will be nervous and angry, believing that he is not capable of becoming a good baseball player. But it is the joint hobby of these children that can change their opinion about each other. Time flies fast, the old is forgotten, the school time ends, and our characters are already quite adults, and now it is very interesting to see how they have changed, how their thoughts, character and dreams have changed. This animated series perfectly reveals its characters to us, each one individually, not running superficially, but as if turning everyone inside out. The main characters of this animated series turned out to be life-like and romantic, with their own ideas, with their own thoughts and characters. It's worth watching this cartoon, it is beautiful in its own way, light and so simple. I know that many people do not like animated cartoons, considering them not interesting and meaningless, and they are right, there are some that are not worth watching, but this particular animated series is not one of those. It is shot with high quality, the characters are beautifully drawn, the graphics are also of good quality. But probably the best thing in this anime was his music, I never cease to be amazed at how well Japanese authors are able to select musical accompaniment for their cartoons. So in this animated series, the music is very competent and tastefully selected, it has its own mood, which so wonderfully complements the storyline. Somewhere, adding notes of joy, somewhere on the contrary, brings sadness and melancholy to the plot. And finally, I would like to say that if you have a desire to watch a good anime, where it makes sense, where you have to think about the plot, where there is a share of romance and innocence, then watch the animated cartoon series called "Cross Game". This is a really worthwhile anime, after watching which, you will have only positive emotions.
You can never guess anything, because even the most obvious sometimes goes in a completely different scenario than you expect. This happens in the first episode of this series.The girl Wakabe, in love with Ko Kitamura, who was jealous of Ko and adored by her sister Tsikushiba, did not return from the camp, where she died as a result of an accident. It seems a little strange that everything very bad happens in the very first episode, but from this moment the time is divided into life after and before the death of Wakaba. It shows the naive, with feigned colors, love between fifth graders Wakabi and Ko, a serious belief in Ko's ability as a peeler, and Tsukishiba, who has excelled at her age of many guys and does not put him in a penny as an athlete. In the first part, Wakaba's sleep and death rapidly change the entire original fate, returning it to the opposite meaning and again taking acceleration, leading to Ko's future achievements in baseball. The film consists of fifty episodes, made in the spirit of romance, with notes of drama and comedy, leading us in all these directions very thoughtful, making us rejoice and sincerely worry about the heroes until the very end. The music written for this anime only adds feelings to it, and the opening, written specifically for this film, adds humanity, soulful sound. The fruitful work of the manga and the ability of director Sekita Osama led to the appearance of the film Adachi Mitsuru, in which life is a real sports competition, where the concepts of love, friendship and the fact that, following the goal, only faith in the future and hard work will surely lead to what something more. Moreover, why, even standing on a high hill, you will remember this with a warm feeling in your chest, with an unquenchable light, even in the coldest cold. Love, watch movies and remember that there is always a good movie somewhere nearby.
