Kubo *almost* defies description.

It reminded me a lot of The Little Princeequally lush and beautiful and layered and texturedbut it's quite another thing altogether.

Wildly philosophical, it's an allegorical masterpiecea melancholy, oracular origami.

39 "production babies." A massive, intricate work of art. Were it not so bone-deep sorrowful at times, one could watch it for hours more.

It will tear your heart out, then give you wings.
