    one of my favorite opening sequences in cinema, and one of my all time favorite soundtracks. this film is funny, sad, uncomfortable, relatable, all at the same time, but never once does it feel artificial, or like it is trying too hard. i really admire that.

    this was very tropey but i still enjoyed it for what it is—an anime film with a good mix of humor, romance, and emotion. i don’t think it’s making some grand statement about climate change, i truly don’t. this film may lack the emotional depth and social commentary of studio ghibli films and children of the sea, but for what it is—a sweet and pretty anime film—it was certainly worth my two hours.
