August Animation Review example: 

For this month I had really enjoyed the “Your Name” music video for this month’s presentation. First is how I like the music very much, it still gives me goosebumps every time that I hear it. It is also a great movie that I watched. I like every scene in this anime movie I have to say, the lighting and the shadows of the environment, especially the bigger pictures like landscape and night, man they are good. This is why I choose to focus on this work this time due to the quality of the content.
