These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Broken Base: For the people who have actually seen it, Ocean Waves is a mixed bag. Is it a well-crafted, gentle love story in a high school setting? Does its short length (72 minutes, a full 15 minutes shorter than My Neighbor Totoro) keep it from fully developing its characters and setting? It is an as-advertised flop with little to make it stand out from the Ghibli norm?
