YMMV / Ocean Waves

  • 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? Is it an as-advertised flop with little to make it stand out from the Ghibli norm?
  • Scenery Porn: It's Studio Ghibli. Where have you been?
