    Very fun and entertaining
    Very entertaining, great visual experience. It has good character development for a movie. I love the character designs, and special effects in this movie. The story can a little complex at times, but it's a fun experience. I hppe everyone who watches it loves it just as much as i did.

    A True Five Star Movie
    This film really is amazing i suggest everyone go and watch it the artwork is really beautiful to look at and is very easy on the eye. The story is really easy to follow it does drag on a bit when a montage scene appears but that is a very minor cribe the voice acting is also on point as are the action scenes and there are a few of them in this movie overall great job A1 and Crunchyroll

    Just a Big Old-----------Meh.
    Cute animation, interesting, but completely unfulfilled concept. Tried to tear jerk, which if successful might have merited another star. Failed. Fight scenes weren't particularly inspiring and stayed to the tried and true Explosions In The Sky bit.

    Never successfully connected to any of the rather flat characters. Used my least favorite anime plot trope (Spoilers). However, I did enjoy some of ...

    A Good Movie Just Lacking a Purpose
    Maybe the biggest problem this movie has is the fact it is about a hour long. It has big ideas and a bigger plot just not enough time to develop it. There are parts of the movie which need to be expanded on such as the relationship developments between the characters. At times it felt like it was too rushed or not explained well enough. But for me the biggest problem with the movie was at the end. ...

    Visually pleasing, plot is lacking
    I honestly enjoyed watching this movie, the art is beautiful and the animation is really smooth. The plot set up is however, basically non-existent which kind of left me feeling like I was getting dumped into the story with no clue as to what the setting actually was or even what the intro exposition scenes meant for the story. Most of the explanation of the setting and story is done through ...

  • Great movie to watch
    the movie in the beginning was a little bit hard to grasp what was going on. But as the movie progressed you are easily able to understand it and it is a fun and enjoyable movie. Also throughout the film you can see the effort they put into the scenery backgrounds, they are just astonishing. As a active anime viewer i would recommend watching this animation.

    Garakowa: A Digital Nightmare?
    Garakowa is well animated, but will require you to watch with tissues.

    The movie opens up with lush scenery of 21st Century Japan in autumn.

    We see Dual, a girl with long, black hair and soft, blue eyes, waiting by a pond, as she is greeted from behind by best friend Sumire, who looks just like Dual, but with reddish-pink eyes. Sumire is excited that she is going to become a pianist, and she ...

    Good, but missing better ending
    I liked it, but would have liked an ending that showed a new world evolving, or the computer program/OS being killed before it could start screwing up the world. Maybe it's better that we let people have free will and accept the downsides of it than to build an utopia where everyone just do as they are "told" to do.

    Unique, complex, original concept, that just falls short due to a rushed story wrap-up.
    Overall, Garakowa is a great movie. It has a nice original concept fleshed out with a complex background story really, really wants to make you think. The mystery of the world the main characters are in, why they are there, the problem with the viruses, and the mystery girl who shows up and just leads to more questions. This plot was laid out perfectly to be an incredibly engrossing and deep film. ...

    Flat Characters, Confused Setting and a Rushed Plot
    Honestly this movie was rather disappointing for me. Though it is technically competent, it lacks what I feel a film actually needs. Which is compelling characters and story. Being only 60 minutes long, I feel that they were far too ambitious and bit off more than they could chew.
    Garakowa tries to be a tearjerker. However a tearjerker only works if you care about the characters enough to cry ...
