Genre: Fantasy Drama
Runtime: 1h 39mI've just finished up watching Patema Inverted, and I have been decently surprised. I usually don't enjoy science fictiony drama [fantasy drama] genred things, but the plot if Patema Inverted was able to keep my attention. I'll try to keep this short so I'm not tempted to [or accidentally] spoil! There's also a trailer at the end for your viewing pleasure!
It seems as though it was first a four-episode ONA series [by Yasuhiro Yoshiura] in Japan, and was released in 2013. I'll only be reviewing the 2014 film release!
It's a tale of two worlds type of scenario, where the different worlds don't agree with each other Their disagreement seems to be centered around their fears of the other world. Patema, main female protagonist, is a wonderful dreamer who wishes to explore the other world. One day she gets that chance, and it's not the way she'd wanted. She meets a boy from the other world named Age, main male protagonist, who attempts to protect her while she's "falling up" in his world.
The police of Age's world find out the Patema is there, and intend to stop her. Age, Patema, and Patema's family are now on a mission to join their worlds in peace....and save Patema of course. Will they succeed? You;ll just have to watch to find out!
That is all I shall say since I fear I may let some things slip. Oh, I will warn you that you may cry. I held out as long as I could, but the tears started to fall when I got to the end!
5 out of 5 stars!
I ending up highly enjoying it, even with it being science fantasy drama.
