Method: Complete Collection (2014/Sentai Blu-ray Set)
B+ Sound: A- Extras: C Episodes: B+
7 years, Nonoka returns to Lake Kiriya City, where a giant glowing
'disk' of light has been there since she left. There, she meets
Noel, a young girl whom nobody seems to remember. Running into her
old childhood friends, she tries to remember the promises they made
and what happened to their relationships in Celestial Method:
Complete Collection (2014).
When Nonoka returns after
those 7 years at first, she doesn't remember her friends or for some
reason Noel (who hasn't aged) is living among them. Noel in fact is
the physical embodiment of the giant 'disk' above their city and 7
seven years ago she was summoned by Nonoka and her friends. Since
then, Noel has been waiting to Nonoka to return and to grant their
wishes. While her friends are at first angry at Nonoka for moving
away, they don't realize they have also forgotten their promises to
Nonoka. Noel is so honest, earnest, and innocent that it hurts, and
she reminds miracles happen because of good will and faith, without
them there is no point behind the miracles.
This was a heart
touching anime reminding the importance of friendship. That spirit
of friendship is MORE about being there for your friends and NOT your
friends being their for YOU. Through the years, regardless of
distances, differences, broken promises or changes, true friends
don't give up on each other.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image across the shows looks
really good and edges up to demo quality in some shots, while the
Japanese lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo with
Pro-Logicish surrounds is just a bit better that makes one wonder if
a 5.1 or 7.1 mix could have been made. Extras include clean opening
and closing animation and trailers.
