emi’s review published on Letterboxd:
You guys, girl's day (a Japanese holiday) is coming up on March 3rd and I think you should all celebrate.
When I was really little, I used to watch this with my mom on girl's day and I'd get a cute doll that came with its own name. Big thank you to Hayao Miyazaki for writing complex characters for little girls to relate to AND for inadvertently creating the first piece of media that helped me connect to my Japanese culture.
Also, people used to tell me I looked like Mei, which I very much appreciated
