Review by Muffy:
The movie is a beautiful movie with great animation, fascinating story and more. In the beginning, I was hyping another movie, Koe no katachi (which is also a very good movie), because I really loved the manga, but after seeing this movie I was sold that this is one of best anime movies ever. It won several awards and is the most successful anime movie ever.
Finally, I love how the story is because it isn’t just a body swap story it goes so much more profound. I won’t go into detail, but a lot is going on. It’s also not the standard romance story, so if you are not that into that, it’s still a great movie to watch.
The movie has a great story, beautiful artwork and it’s just a piece of art that you have to see.
