“..it is a little sad, a little scary, a little surprising and a little informative, just like life itself”
This was my first attempt at watching a Japanese animation movie. Though the first half tests your patience a little, it kinda ends with a feel good factor. Landed up actually liking the oddball characters shown. Its a warm fantasy that stresses the affectionate bond between two young sisters. The visuals of rural Japan shown (or rather drawn) are pretty stunning.
