"My mission is to make everyone happy by singing. That is the only reason I continue to operate." -Diva
At the first glance, "Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song" is a deceptively normal idol animated series whose voice actors/actresses want to promote their music career. But Vivy is a no nonsense profound story about Artificial Intelligence (AI) that offers one of the best watching experience in 2021. Its writers Tappei Nagatsuki and Eiji Umeha are aiming to overcome the colossal shadow of their previous works; and Wit Studio is doing its best to create stunningly high quality animation.
The first arc contains two episodes: Episode 1: "My Code: To Make Everyone Happy with My Singing" and Episode 2: "Quarter Note- The Beginning of the One Hundred-Year Journey". Together, they offer much more enjoyment than our anticipation.
Immortality is not a blessing but a cruel curse. To live forever is to live a lonely life full of painful moments of parting. "To Your Eternity" directed by Masahiko Murata written by Shinzō Fujita based on the same name manga created by Yoshitoki Ōima, makes it very clear on the first episode with the tragic end of a once positive boy (Reiji Kawashima) who lives alone in the frozen tundra. The animated film explore theme of loneliness with its solid character writing, well-made animation, thoughtful music and setting. This make "To Your Eternity" one of the best show for Spring 2021 season.
