Great! you got English subtitles! However... the grammar... eek. ;) I was the same when I tried speaking to a native German speaker with my paltry zwei jahren of Deutsche, hee hee! I just gave up after that. I got tired of trying for years and years and exhausting myself on so many things- so i decided to stop and take care of myself. But you seem to be trucking along just fine, and that's great! ;) keep on goin; you'll get there.

I am really sorry for the grammer. I will try to reupload a better version soon. Thank you for taking the time to write this comment and that you told me a bit about your experience. You're very nice and lovely :)

Add subtitles please!

Dont get me wrong the animation was great but keep in mind not everyone could understand German. That's unfortunately why I have to give it 4 stars. I'm sure Google translate could've helped you out even if its not always accurate

I'm struggling between 3.5 and 4 stars for this. I understand this is German, but most of this audience is English. My suggestion would be to have English subtitles because other people will get frustrated if they are interested in the story but don't understand what's going on.

Great job with the animation, Great job with the music.
3.5 stars for this review but I'm not saying I didn't like this.
I just couldn't keep up with the story because my German is limited.
I want to follow your story though! Please consider English subtitles :)

Ein Mann der ist verrückt während denkt er an die Frauen? Was geht bei Welt? Sie alles machen nur Anime. Gibt es ein Grund? Aber gutes Animationen !

yoshik0 responds:

No, haha. I will tell you:

It's about the young german guy David, who studies Japanology in Tokyo. The loneliness sets to him and he falls into depression. He longs for closeness and affection and remembers moments like band performances or an encounter with a young woman. That's the plot xD

I couldn't understand anything, but the animation is vey good
