Mary and the Witch's Flower

Mary and the Witch's Flower ★★★

So much potential during the first acts. The drawing style was absolutely amazing and I loved the world building that wasn't afraid of clichés that still work. However, after Mary finds the book the universe seems to shrink and all of a sudden feels empty and small where only the main characters exist.

I'm happy that handdrawn animation movies survived the retirement of Miyazaki though, and I am looking forward to seing this new studio take up the mantle and refine the formula.
