Good Enough
11 April 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

Laughing under the clouds was almost close to the anime, but, overall, was interesting and entertaining.

The special effects were really good and that helped with the enjoyment of the drama. The action scenes were really good as well and the costumes, although some of them were wierd, they were nice enough and close to the ones in the anime. The performances were good as well and I especially loved the bond between the brothers that ignite the whole action.

So, overall, seven out of ten for laughing under the clouds.
