JournalEdit

Bit soppy and limp. Praised everywhere for its beauty, I suppose it was but it seemed a bit too floaty-namby-pamby-vapid-empty-touchy-feely for me. It was alright, and the story was kinda touching I guess, but not enough so.

Ratings, awards, mentions and recommendationsEdit

From the List of Worthwhile Anime: 'One reviewer said of it: "[it] pierces the veil of the everyday to reveal a poignant, evanescent beauty most of us notice only in rare moments." It's a deeply beautiful animation about love and the progression of life.'
