SYNOPSIS

Di dunia ini, terdapat dunia manusia dan dunia lain yang terpisah. Dunia para binatang buas.

Shibuya di dunia manusia adalah Jutengai di dunia binatang buas.

Kisah ini dimulai dengan seorang bocah laki-laki yang kesepian serta sesosok binatang buas penyendiri yang masing-masing tinggal di dunia yang terpisah.

Suatu hari, sang bocah bertemu dengan sang binatang buas, Kumatetsu, dan memutuskan untuk tinggal di dunianya agar ia dapat tumbuh menjadi kuat. Ia menjadi murid Kumatetsu, dan diberi nama baru, Kyuta. Awalnya, mereka bertengkar mengenai segala hal, tetapi, hidup mereka yang luar biasa serta latihan bersama membantu mereka menjadi dewasa, dan perlahan, sebuah ikatan terbentuk antara mereka, layaknya ayah dan putranya.

Suatu hari, ketika Kyuta telah tumbuh sebagai seorang anak muda yang kuat, ia tanpa sengaja berjalan kembali ke Shibuya dari Jutengai dan bertemu siswi bernama Kaede. Pertemuannya dengan Kaede, yang mengajarinya tentang dunia yang baru serta nilai-nilainya, membuat Kyuta mulai berpikir di dunia manakah seharusnya ia berada.

 

In this world, there is a world of humans and also another separate world. The world of Beasts.

Shibuya in the human world and Jutengai in the Beast world.

The story starts with a lonely boy and a loner Beast that live in these two unconnected worlds.

One day, a boy encounters a Beast, Kumatetsu, and decides to go live in the world of Beasts in order to get strong. He becomes Kumatetsu’s apprentice, who gives him a new name, Kyuta. At first, they clash about everything, but their extraordinary life and training together help both of them mature, and gradually a bond develops between them just like a real father and son.

One day, when Kyuta has grown up to be a robust young man, he accidentally wanders back to Shibuya from Jutengai and meets schoolgirl Kaede. His encounter with Kaede, who teaches him about a new world and its values, makes him start wondering in which world he really belongs.

Might be Hosoda’s best, as a coming-of-age fantasy The Boy and the Beast felt deeply original by impressive universe building and storytelling. Rating: ★★★★

VINCENT JOSE (The Jose Movie Review)

The Boy and the Beast was a cute, warm, yet solid metaphorical self-discoveries with wonderful adventurous spirit. Rating: ★★★★
