Audience Reviews for Shonen merikensakku (The Shonen Merikensack)

The Shonen Merikensack displays the writing and directing talents of Kankurô Kudô. Both are more than mediocre.While containing a run time of a few minutes over 2 hours, The Shonen Merikensack never lets up on its off the wall style. The story telling is quite good, and as the picture progresses the more touching it becomes. Flashback segments, documentary type interviews, and a few brief animation sequences all describe parts of the story at various intervals.In the early going, the humor is comical, but it eventually dries up. It isn't that the laughs stop coming. The jokes and comedic bits just lack that witty humor from the initial portions. Nevertheless, this picture still entertains.Aoi Miyazaki is just fantastic, as she delivers on all facets of her character. She is worth the price of admission. The cast that make up the members of "The Shonen Merikensack" band are also amusing to see.The Shonen Merikensack tends to come across as a bit childish for older audiences and definitely a bit mature for younger audiences. Still, most will find some fun in it.
