SiskoidMasaaki Yuasa's Ride Your Wave is a romcom with a bit of tragedy and fantasy included, and of course it looks gorgeous, but if I loved it as much as I did, it's because it's genuinely FUNNY. Our lead, Minato, is one of those clumsy romcom heroines that has trouble putting her life together, except that she's an expert surfer. Then she meets a firefighter, falls in love and... wait, why is there more than half a movie left? Even in the formulaic first act, there are twists we don't expect, but once we hit the second, things get more anime, if you know what I mean, and from there, it's difficult to divine what happens next, so it goes from delight to delight, and ends on something as epic as it is bizarre. The softest audience members will have to dry their eyes; the more cynical will mock the use of a pop song essentially on repeat. I fall somewhere in the middle, but thoroughly enjoyed this tragic comedy about first love and learning to let go of it, and through that, the kind of autonomy that, happily as much as sadly, stays with you the rest of your life. 3 years 1 month ago
