Review: (#1) The colors feel strange, over-saturated, which clashes with the odd yellow coloring of the title and balances poorly with the upper images, which appear regularly lit, while the bottom is over-lit.
(#2) A rudimentary design with too much empty space. (#3) A slice of life setting with a color blending issue at the upper part of the design. (#4) Almost identical to design #2, which is in a different language and has a different title font, but which doesn’t improve upon or diminish the prior.

Review: A poorly crafted trailer, this push to draw in an audience makes for a dull sitting. The premise is well referenced, but the supporting cinematic structure is unimpressive.
