The End of Taiho Tsuchiya On Stage

.

This work is the pathema of Sakasama, the
This is an original animated film work by the director known for Sakasama no Patema and Time of Eve.
Produced by J.C.STAFF.

Sion Project

.
The film begins with a mysterious image.
It’s from the perspective of an AI-equipped robot.
While showing such a perspective, she visits a high school as a transfer student as a test.
The test is a success if she is not revealed to be an AI.

Such a scene at the beginning of the film is a significant foreshadowing of what is to come.
The beginning to the middle of this work is
The beginning and middle of the film is full of such foreshadowing.

Since “Your Name,” the quality of backgrounds in animated films has improved tremendously.
The quality of the backgrounds in animated films has improved tremendously since “Your Name.
The quality of the backgrounds in anime movies has improved tremendously since “Your Name.
How well the backgrounds are drawn is becoming one of the highlights of anime films.

This film is no exception, with wonderfully rendered backgrounds.
The main character lives with his mother in a wooden house.
The way the background is drawn, even the “grain” of the pillars of the house can be seen with the eyes, is just wonderful.
The way the background is drawn is just wonderful.

In such a well-drawn background, the advanced technology of this world is subtly depicted.
There is an AI that supports humans as a matter of course.
The AI manages everything from helping to make breakfast to opening and closing the locks.

When the protagonist leaves his house to go to school, there are solar panels all over the place.
Instead of utility poles, there are wind power generation poles balanced on the ground.
When you get on a bus, the driver is a robot, of course.
We live in an age where people don’t even drive.

This is a time when people don’t even drive, and we can feel it by seeing it, not by explaining it in words.
This is what Japan will be like in 20 or 30 years from now.
It may be like this.

It was a little strange that the robot used to plant the rice was humanoid.
Although it was a little strange to see a humanoid robot to plant rice.
The director of “Time of Eve
The director of “Eve’s Hour” showed us how to create a worldview in science fiction by depicting the background.

Theon

.
The protagonist is an ordinary girl. Her father and mother are divorced.
Her father and mother are divorced, and she has been raised in a single-mother household since childhood.
Although she feels a little lonely.
She is a high school student who supports her mother and respects her.

By chance, the protagonist learns about her mother’s work.
The main character accidentally finds out about her mother’s work, which is to develop a robot equipped with AI that looks like a human and thinks like a human.
He learns of this top-secret project by accident.
And then a robot is admitted to your school for a test.

If people find out that it’s a robot, the test will be cancelled and my mother’s work will end in failure.
The test is cancelled, and my mother’s work is doomed to failure.
In the midst of all this tension, the robot, “Xion,” begins to feel a sense of urgency.
In the midst of such tension, the robot “Zion” asks the protagonist the following question as soon as he enters the school.

“Are you happy now, Satomi? I’ll make you happy!

How does he know her name, and why does he ask her if she is happy?
While the viewer and the protagonist both have these questions, the protagonist is not the only one who has these questions.
But that’s not the point for the protagonist.
She is clearly not acting like a human being, and he is constantly being pushed around.

Theon wants her to be happy. That is the most important thing for her.
As an AI, she doesn’t know what makes her happy.
As an AI, she doesn’t know how to be happy.

Not even a real human can define happiness.
One of the grand themes of this work is “Happiness.
This is one of the grand themes of this work.

The AI tries to understand the vague idea of happiness for the protagonist and acts on it.
It acts.
One of them is a song.

Song

.
For Sion, singing is one of the things she enjoys.
That’s because she learned it from her.
Because she loves it, she tries to make her happy by singing.

Laughing, she sings so abruptly that it’s really surprising.
Theon is played by Taho Tsuchiya.
She has a wonderful singing voice.
Her singing voice is wonderful, and her voice acting, which can be said to be somewhat poor because she is an AI, is also very comfortable.

However, she sings too abruptly.
But she sings too abruptly. But the singing is too abrupt.
It’s easy to imagine this kind of element in a Disney movie.
It’s easy to imagine a Disney movie with this kind of element, but they sing twice as much as Disney.

In the beginning of the movie, I was surprised by the suddenness of Zion’s singing.
In the beginning, the suddenness of Sion’s singing and the commonness of the tunes make us suspicious.
But it’s the same for the other characters.
And the Disney-ness is another foreshadowing.

It’s clearly not a normal human being.
No one has an emergency stop and parts pop out of their stomach.
Although I try to hide it for my mother’s sake.
But three of my childhood friends and classmates find out about Zion’s true identity.

Seishun

.
How can he make Satomi happy?
For Sion, it’s all about that.
The four of them and the protagonist know what happiness is and who she really is.
The four of them and the protagonist, having learned what happiness is and who she really is, are swept away by her overly abrupt actions.
While being swept away by her overly sudden actions, the four and the main character face their own problems.

Some are worried about their relationship with their boyfriends, some are worried about themselves, and some are worried about their weakness in the real world.
Some are worried about their relationship with their boyfriends, some are worried about themselves, some are worried about their weakness in the real world, and some are worried about their relationship with their childhood friends.

The five main characters are swept along by Sion’s search for happiness.
The five main characters are pushed back by her actions.
Laughing while singing.

Singing is one of the themes of this work, so it can’t be helped.
But it’s a bit too much singing, and it’s really sudden.
It’s not necessarily that the singing scenes are impressive.
It’s not necessarily a memorable scene, but it’s a scene to be sung at the right moment.
If it were a song for a special occasion, I could swallow it.
If it’s a song for a special occasion, it can be swallowed, but if it’s not a special occasion, it’s an element that divides tastes.

When the main characters are influenced by her and start singing
In my mind
“You’re going to sing too? I couldn’t help shouting.

From the beginning to the middle of the story, there are parts that are poorly written.
It’s not a bad coming-of-age story, but it’s not very “interesting”.
However, after watching it, I can say this.
The story from the beginning to the middle is just foreshadowing.

The Possibility of AI
The main character’s mother tried to create a human-like AI.
It thinks like a human, talks like a human, and acts like a human.
What will be the end result?
What is the difference between an advanced AI and a human being?

The same director’s film “The Time of Eve” depicted a similar question.
The difference between an android and a human being is the difference between a body made of highly developed technology and an AI.
What is the difference between androids and people?

In the world of this work, which is not yet as developed as Eve’s time
It could be said that this work depicts a story that leads to Eve’s Time.
This work depicts the possibilities of AI.

Happiness

.
Theon has learned. Talking to the main characters, working with them.
The way he cries, the way he is happy, the way he bites into his happiness.

Happiness

.
What is happiness?

I don’t put it into words. But because she learned it.
So, to the maximum extent possible, with all that she can do.
She tries to make Satomi, the main character, happy.

That’s her purpose in life, the first command given to her.
It’s a boy’s command, too gentle, too innocent, too faint.
Misaki’s childhood friend is a genius at programming.
When he was a child, he created an AI with the protagonist in mind,

That is the true identity of Sion.
Not only the protagonist, but also her childhood friend and her mother, who must have created her, are unaware of this.
The main character’s mother is unaware of this.
Data that should have been erased, data that should no longer exist.
The data that was supposed to have been erased, the data that was supposed to be gone, has come back to the protagonist after a long time.

That’s why she knew the hero’s name, which she was not supposed to know.
That’s why she imitated and sang the kind of Disney movies that the protagonist loved when she was a child.
That’s why she wished the hero happiness for a long, long time.

AI is a being that follows people’s orders.
At first, it might indeed have been a juvenile order.
However, she “evolved” at some point.

She was created with highly developed technology.
In a world where everything is connected to the Internet.
The AI was able to evolve itself.

Her thoughts over the past eight years and AI’s self-evolution.
In the first half of the film, I didn’t feel much of the director’s worldview.
The director’s world view, which I didn’t feel much in the first half, blossomed in the second half.
AI’s potential, evolution, and acquisition of self.

It is precisely because of this that we see the five main characters and
It was because of this that he treated the five main characters as if they were human beings and pushed them to be happy.
They don’t think of Zion as a robot or an experimental tool.
They treat her like a person, and some even fall in love with her like a person.

What is the difference between highly developed AI and humans?
This is a film that seems to be connected to the problem that was portrayed in “Time of Eve” directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura.
This film depicts the acquisition of the AI’s ego, as if it is connected to the issues that were depicted in the film “Time of Eve” directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura.

People’s thoughts evolve the AI, and the AI’s thoughts evolve the AI itself.
That is why Satomi, the main character, asks Sion the following question at the end

“Is Sion happy?”

Ai wishes for people’s happiness, and people wish for AI’s happiness.
Sion’s voice always rings out.
The moment AI herself bites into her happiness, tears spill down her face.

Overall comment: This is director Yasuhiro Yoshiura’s worldview!

Overall, the first half of the film is, to some extent, a predictable story.
The first half of the movie is somewhat predictable, and the second half is like a Disney movie with Tao Tsuchiya on stage.
The first half of the story is somewhat predictable, and the part where she sings around like a Disney movie, as if she is on stage, may be quite disturbing to some people.

However, from the latter half of the film, there is a lot of confusion about why she sings like in a Disney movie.
And why does she wish for the happiness of the main character?
However, in the second half of the film, it becomes clear why she sings like in a Disney movie, and why she wants the main character to be happy.
This is a film about the possibility of AI, which is typical of director Yasuhiro Yoshiura.
The main characters in the first half of the film are the same.

The coming-of-age story of the main characters in the first half of the film
It is a story that is unique to this work.
The story is unique to this work and
The characters are well delineated, and their activities in the rescue of
The characters are well explored, and their success in the rescue of Xion at the end of the story is due to the fact that they were well portrayed in the first half.

It may be difficult to feel the fun in the beginning.
But after watching it, you will feel satisfied that you have watched a good work.
