A Hidden Gem

I loved this movie because it is different from most other Studio Ghibli movies. It has an interesting twist, and the two main characters actually confess their love for each other, unlike most others where it is implied. It is a little sad but also has a nice feel to it. The message is nice. It's short and sweet and you should definitely give it a try if you liked his other movies.

I really liked this movie, even though it's mostly romance like that guy said "their so hot".

A turn for Studio Ghibli... for better or worse?

Most kids like Ghibli. Most adults like Ghibli. So what if your first Ghibli was in your preteens? You wont like Ghibli. I don't like Ghibli, because I started too late/too early. But this movie is NOTHING LIKE other Ghibli. So I like it. It goes away from the Imagination and goes to historical fiction. And it's a good historical fiction at that. Ok for 9 year olds, maybe 8 year olds.
