Beberapa hari lalu saya menonton sebuah anime aneh nan artistik berjudul Cat Soup. Saya menyebutnya aneh karena jalan ceritanya lumayan ngawur dan tidak begitu jelas. Sedangkan artistik karena art yang digunakan beraliran surrealis. Sekedar informasi, anime berdurasi 32 menit ini sama sekali tidak memiliki dialog.

Storyline Cat Soup hampir tidak dapat dilihat dengan mata telanjang (halah). Yang dapat saya jelaskan adalah si karakter utama, seekor kucing (bernama Nyatto, setelah saya search di Google) melakukan perjalanan bersama kakaknya untuk mencari jiwa kakaknya yang hilang.




Sulit diungkapkan dengan kata-kata bagaimana pendapat saya mengenai Cat Soup. Yang jelas OVA satu ini sangat enjoyable. Entah kenapa saya menyenangi anime-anime yang menyentuh unsur-unsur psikologis seperti ini. Itu pula alasan saya ngefans dengan anime buatan almarhum Satoshi Kon.

Secara overall, anime ini sangat saya rekomendasikan bagi anda yang suka dengan tipe-tipe cerita mindfuck. Namun jika anda adalah tipe yang malas berpikir saat menonton anime maka hindarilah Cat Soup.

FYI, Cat Soup adalah anime produksi JC Staff di tahun 2001. Masaaki Yuasa (Kemonozume, The Tatamy Galaxy) turut andil dalam penciptaan anime ini.

Hola mi amigos! Secara ajaib saya bangkit kembali setelah di postingan sebelumnya nyaris tewas akibat efek moe yang overload meerasuk ke jiwa saya. Baiklah, kini tinggalkan sejenak euforia Shoushitsu. Mari kita saksikan anime-anime yang bakal tayang season depan. Apa saja kira-kira yang layak untuk dinikmati? Akankah tahun 2011 bakal suram dengan adanya kebijakan baru Bill 156? Mari kita sama-sama nantikan di musim winter 2011 nanti.

Yah, saya akui most of them suck a lot. Kita lihat saja nanti apakah ada yang bakal tertangkap radar saya. Oke finish with this dan kembali rewatch Shoushitsu untuk yang ke 15,532 kalinya.

Seperti yang sudah saya janjikan, berikut review saya tentang Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu.

Hal pertama yang saya perhatikan dari Shoushitsu ini adalah bagaimana Kyoto Animation berusaha 'menghidupkan' kembali jiwa para Haruhiist yang sepertinya telah mati sejak tragedi Endless Eight di season dua yang lalu. Hal ini bisa dilihat dimana di awal film opening yang digunakan adalah Bouken Desho Desho? yang merupakan opening di season pertama Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu. Begitu juga dengan gaya animasinya dimana KyoAni tidak lagi menggunakan K-ON style dan kembali ke gaya gambar Haruhi mereka yang lama.

Harus saya akui, KyoAni kali ini benar-benar membayar lunas kekecewaan saya atas kehancuran franchise Haruhi di season dua yang lalu. Adaptasi novel keempat dari seri Suzumiya Haruhi ini dikerjakan dengan serius oleh KyoAni. Seluruh adegan di film ini betul-betul terasa emosi yang dihadirkan. Mulai dari keputus asaan Kyon saat menyadari dunia di sekelilingnya telah berubah, ketegangan yang dialami Kyon saat hendak menemui Haruhi dan Koizumi, hingga adegan antara Asakura dan Kyon menjelang akhir film.

Satu hal lain yang patut diacungi jempol adalah keberhasilan Sugita Tomokazu dalam memainkan perannya sebagai Kyon. Di sebuah film yang hampir 90% isinya berisi monolog dari seorang karakter, maka kegagalan peran adalah hal yang sangat fatal dan untungnya Shoushitsu tidak terjatuh ke dalam lubang tersebut. Ya, itu semua berkat kepiawaian Tomokazu dalam memerankan karakter Kyon dan tentu saja, dengan beberapa sarkasme favorit kita semua.

Para pembaca light novelnya pasti menyadari kalau film ini bagaikan sebuah kopian dari novelnya. Ya, film adaptasi ini bisa dibilang sangat persis dengan novel. Hal yang membuat saya senang karena KyoAni tidak melakukan hal-hal yang tidak perlu kali ini.

Bagi seseorang yang telah menonton serial animenya tentu akrab dengan beberapa event yang ada di film ini, terutama kejadian Tanabata tiga tahun lalu yang diangkat dalam episode "Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody". Episode tersebut memainkan peran penting di film ini. Tanpa menontonnya maka dipastikan akan membuat kebingungan.

Durasi yang cukup panjang dari film ini –sekitar 160 menit– tidak membuat saya bosan. Kualitas dari animasi dan jalan cerita yang konstan adalah kunci keberhasilannya. Di akhir film malahan saya merasa durasi yang ada masih kurang, karena saya berharap KyoAni bakal mengikutkan chapter The Melancholy of Asahina Mikuru namun harapan tersebut nampaknya masih belum terkabul. Film ini murni hanya mengadaptasi dari novel keempat saja. Yah, setidaknya mungkin itu adalah hint dari KyoAni untuk Haruhi season berikutnya.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu adalah sebuah mahakarya yang solid, tidak ada kekurangan sama sekali. Film ini merupakan tontonan wajib bagi para Haruhiist dan juga para penikmat anime pada umumnya. Mungkin saya akan menoton ulang film ini  lagi untuk mengisi waktu luang selama libur natal kali ini. Well, jika anda telah menonton film ini silakan berbagi pendapat anda dengan saya, dan jika anda masih belum sempat menontonnya (versi BD bukan versi camrip) maka tunggu apalagi, segera tonton dan nikmati pengalaman dua setengah jam yang tak terlupakan!

tl;dr: Tonton movie ini sekarang juga

catatan tambahan:
3 Hal Yang Membuat Anda Wajib Menonton Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu.

1. St. Asahina-san
I want my christmas puresento from her :3
2. Long hair + Ponytail Haruhi
No, Kyon, it's not only 36% but also +50% life steal plus attack damage
3. Yuki, All About Yuki
Yuki uses charm smile! 999999999999999999 damage to the author! It's super effective!


God, now I know what "death by moe" means *die with accomplished smile*
Pengumuman: Penulis dilarikan ke rumah sakit seusai menonton ulang adegan blushing Yuki hingga waktu yang tidak ditentukan. Kemungkinan tidak akan ada postingan baru hingga akhir tahun, Terima kasih atas perhatiannya.

 Akhirnya penantian panjang itu terbayar lunas sudah. Hari ini saya menonton movie yang telah lama dinanti-nantikan, Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu. Sejak diumumkan di akhir season 2, saya sangat berharap banyak pada movie ini. Saat versi camripnya beredar, saya menahan diri untuk tidak menontonnya karena khawatir bakalan merusak 'feeling' yang didapat dari menonton versi BDnya. Dan hari ini, setelah kurang lebih 1 tahun menanti, Shoushitsu quality Bluray 1080p pun akhirnya mampir ke harddisk eksternal saya dan selesai menonton film berdurasi 2 jam 41 menit ini. Komentar saya? It simply brilliant.

Mulai dari kualitas animasi, detail background, hingga soundtracknya bisa dibilang sempurna. Dan tentu saja segi cerita tidak usah diragukan lagi. Jika anda membaca blog ini maka kemungkinan 76% anda sudah mengetahui jalan cerita Shoushitsu yang merupakan salah satu volume favorit saya diantara novel-novel Haruhi lain. Well, sebetulnya saya ingin menulis review panjang lebar, tetapi besok saya ada ujian (orz) dan juga masih ada tugas yang belum terselesaikan. Review lengkapnya akan segera saya posting 1 atau 2 hari ke depan. Err akhir kata, Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu ini saya beri nilai sempurna 10/10.

Scene favoritku, Yuki <3
