What a low amount of posts for such a great work.

I think this has become one of my favourite films. It has the same kind of sincerity and heart that I like in Ghibli films, but with a different approach, both in storytelling as well as setting and backdrop. And I really enjoyed how the film started as a love story but by the end, confirmed by that final line, became more of an exploration about aging and losing childhood and innocence, with the way that Chiyoko wasn't chasing the man anymore, but rather her young self and the emotions and desires associated with it.

Such a great anime....
