Honestly, I had no idea what this show was about. No clue at all.
That’s when Kenji discovers his "summer job" is to pretend to be Natsuki's fiance and dance with her at the birthday celebration. As Kenji attempts to keep up with Natsuki's act around her family, he receives a strange math problem on his cell phone which, being a math genius, he can't resist solving.
As it turns out, the solution to the mysterious equation causes a bizarre parallel world to collide with Earth, and it's up to Kenji and his new fake family to put reality back in order.
Until the results of the Tokyo Anime Fair 2010 Animation Awards was presented, with Summer Wars weeping a total of 6 awards!

- Fine Arts Award
I HAD to find out what this movie was about..
I love how they blend the concepts of virtual and reality in both worlds. Very original indeed with a math-prodigy protagonist which saves the world in the end (or maybe just the family and house).
The story line is just A.W.E.S.O.M.E.!
A very touching show as well. This is one of those shows you can be proud to be human as it shows the true limits humans can reach, as well as displaying the kindness of mankind. A total win in my heart. At times, I just stare in awe with tears rolling down...
Well, not all parts are tear jerking as most of my tears were thanks to the hilarious comedy played out, especially by the Jinnouchi family. Haha. I don't remember having that much laughs in a show since Baka to Test, which is btw, really funny too!
It's like.....like......argh! F@#* my explanation!
Just go watch it!
Words cannot describe my feelings for this show at all... maybe just 1. It starts with "A" and rhymes with "foursome" ^^
Truly, if you're ever in the mood for a feel good movie, this is one of them.
Showing the true slices-of-life reality mixed with action and excitement, topped with a large serving of AWESOMEness at the end.
Recently, the Agency of Cultural Affairs of the Japanese Government awarded Hosoda Mamoru, director of Summer Wars and Toki o Kakeru Shoujo, the MEXT Art Encouragement Shinjin Prize of the Media Arts Category.
Pretty big deal when you have the acknowledgment of the government, patting your back.
Here's to Hosoda-san and future works! KAMPAIIIII~!
