The 2018 film "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas" was adapted from Yoru Sumino's manga. It's a dramatic/coming-of-age movie that chronicles the quest for fulfillment and happiness of two very dissimilar characters. As they discover the essence of love and compassion, they invite the audience into a world filled with emotional ups and downs while imparting numerous valuable life lessons.

The protagonist of the story is Sakura, a young, cheerful girl with a terminal pancreatic disease and a limited lifespan. But she does manage to become friends with one of her classmates, and the two of them enjoy life together for a lot of the time. Because of their strong chemistry, there will undoubtedly be romantic interest between them.

Since it is made clear right away that Sakura has no chance of surviving, "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas" is heavily influenced by vanity. The spectator is compelled to love her while knowing the terrible outcome. She is, after all, a lovely being full of contrasts, blending fear and excitement, joy and agony, and tension and tranquility. All of this intensifies the bittersweet feelings while momentarily detracting from the pressing issue at hand. And that's what makes it so brilliant—precisely that's how the main characters feel.

Despite the fact that death is a big theme in this movie, life is its focus. It explores how fragile and transient life is, putting emphasis on the importance of valuing each and every day. Additionally, it discusses "the pursuit of happiness" and how one could find fulfillment and joy through introspection or through amusement and dialogue. I like "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas" because of its realistic yet dreamy tone, among other things. It's a realistic film that also successfully incorporates enigmatic ideas like "destiny" and "soulmates." Moving forward, it highlights the importance of a person's decisions and actions in forming their personality. Your thoughts ultimately shape who you are.

The romance drama "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas" is not your normal one. No, it is much more! This is a toast that honors friendship, love, and life itself. Despite its simplicity, it delivers a dramatic and emotional story with suspenseful surprises. The young soul is shown to be chaotic, wild, pure, and unrivaled to death!

I felt emotionally involved in the story because Haruki Shiga, the main male protagonist, and I had a lot of similarities.

He is aloof, antisocial, and introverted at the beginning of the story. At first, he barely showed any emotion. But as the story progresses, it becomes clear that he is a coward who is frightened to form any relationships because he does not want to hurt anyone by his acts, but by the end of the story, he has learned how to be more open with his views. He gives the impression of being kind and grateful to others. With Sakura's assistance, he develops the ability to express himself, his feelings, and his willingness to be vulnerable to others throughout the course of the story. He gains the ability to love, care for, and be loved by others. He starts to talk about his true feelings for Sakura as he goes through this transition.

Moving on, I can state unequivocally that the film's artwork is outstanding. details, faultless movement, gorgeous hues, and breathtaking scenery. But what really draws the eye is the exquisite lighting, which enhances the surreal feel of everything. Because the plotline dictates whether it should be tranquil or intense, the soundtrack, which was composed by the legendary Hiroko Sebu, perfectly accompanies the narrative.

If you haven't done so previously, you should watch this anime. Don't be hesitant since this was undoubtedly something amazing to see.
