Review: This movie is truly breath taking .
Characters – Not just enjoyable characters but believable . Every character from the background characters of the city and the country people seem to translated perfectly . I can picture these people in my own landscape of Ireland . These aren’t characters in a storybook but people playing role in their own lives.
Music- The music played through out the film makes you slowly want to cry . Even a simple scene showing landscape. Best music in a Anime Film in ages
animation – brilliant and flow together perfectly
Rating 5/5 Feels
