Although it runs for far too long Proposal Daisakusen (Operation Love) has just enough of a twist narrative to keep viewers somewhat entertained. The premise is about as believable as pigs flying with science fiction / fantasy stylings that don’t particularly make a whole lot of sense yet the general air of romance that permeates every episode is especially welcome to fans of the genre.
I am going to say with one simple word my opinion about this movie: flummoxed. Yes, this is one of those rare times when no amount of cinema studies schooling or life lessons served me any good. Gegege No Kitaro, besides having an odd sounding pronunciation in English is absolutely impenetrable for those who go into this film without any prior knowledge of the source material. Thank goodness I watch copious amounts of anime or else some of the bizarre creatures or crackpot imagery would have surely overloaded my cerebral cortex leaving my body a spastic mess.
