I personally loved the story, it was a sad and a little predictable ending but I loved the reference to the little mermaid. The disabilities that was shown was heartwarming and beautiful to see. I loved that the bubble, Tokyo was wrapped up in and people deciding to live in this bubble could be interpreted in different ways. The animation, music, character designs were legendary. This anime was just so beautiful and sad to watch.
