Beautiful movie, but I have to rate it as GOOD just because my one and only will always be Spirited Away. Still I recommend this!
Short, sweet, and impossibly sad. You can sense oncoming tragedy from the very beginning, which just makes it all the more heartbreaking.
Beautiful and tragic. Tells a more compelling love story in 45 min than a lot of 26 episode anime do.
A short movie with a unexpected plot. If you're into tragedies this might interest you.
A little bit predictable but still an emotional movie, beautifully put together and the art style is just wonderful
It may be a bit predictable, but while watching you're just too invested to notice anything. Cried so hard, I couldn't breathe.
Short, cute and beautiful it can only be enjoyable !
A good short movie that might make you cry
It was nice and very beautiful and kinda sad would recommend for people who like sad anime movies like me :^)
Nothing TOO special but it's still nice and sweet
