Hitting Singapore cinemas this September school holiday from 9 September, Crayon Shinchan The Movie: School Mystery! The Splendid Tenkasu Academy is here to spread cheers and laughter to the whole family at Golden Village cinemas islandwide.
We caught the movie at a preview screening and enjoyed it immensely.
Shinnosuke (Crayon Shinchan) and his friends experiencing a one-week stay as part of the “defense force” of Tenkatōitsu Kasukabe Private Academy (nicknamed “Tenkasu”), an elite boarding school that is administrated by a state-of-the-art AI. But when Kazama is attacked, with his intelligence reduced, and strange bite marks left on his butt, the mood begins to change. The Kasukabe defense force joins forces with the school’s dropout student council president Chishio Atsuki to form a group of detectives and shed some light on the mystery.
The plot is pretty straightforward, but the characters are fun, with all the right ingredients for a successful coming-of-age teenage movie thrown in such as friendship, the spirit of adventure and first love. Add to that, a detective genre where the audience is kept in suspense, trying to guess who the ultimate villain is and you have a movie that is bound to delight.
I have watched several movie adaptations of Crayon Shinchan and this is the best yet.
Scripted for all ages, this would be the perfect movie to bring your little ones or even adults to watch together to learn or relive the bitter-sweet experience of coming of age.
