… it’s not great; and that’s just because of a couple things, so, right off the top of my head:

  1. Sakura is just a lovable main character, but she’s annoying at times, especially at the beginning of the story. Of course YMMV.
  2. The beginning of the story seems a bit too forced… sorta “things have to be like this” or like “this situation have to lead to this conclusion”: why?
    This maybe occurs because there are too much things happening in too little time, probably in a 2 ½ hours movie the pace would have been slower (thus better for this type of movie). Again YMMV.
  3. The soundtrack: I can’t remember a single track standing out from all of the background music
    (compare this to some tracks from Scum’s Wish); and, no, the opening and the end titles don’t count.

Setting these things aside, I want to eat your pancreas is still a very good movie, the story is easy to follow, drawings and animations are really well done, there are silly moments, tragic moments and the main characters are sympathetic enough to make the movie enjoyable to watch.

Recommended, if you have enough spare time to watch it.
