“I thought so, too.”
i guess i really should try to say something.
this movie was so meaningful to me in so many levels that i’d rather keep most of it for myself and probably for my heart, too. but one thing i know: from now on, every time i think about this, i will speak directly from the deepest inch of my soul.
this transcended the idea of being an anime fan or not—it reaches a way deepest place. the art is impeccable—those lights, those colours and the details are all on point, meticulously well-finished. the dialogues, even the most obvious ones, are heart-warming and meaningful.
watching this one day after I watched Interstellar was too much; a huge experience—one of the most sentimental, intense and beautiful ones. i feel like this healed my heart a little bit. needed five minutes in silence after that to breathe, think and cry a little bit more, of course.
read one review that said "It's the feeling of never wanting a dream to end, desperately trying to go back to sleep hoping that your dream would somehow pick up where it had left off." and it fills my heart with love and happiness that i can't really relate to this anymore. my most beautiful dream—the most amazing i've ever had—is as real as it comes. in fact, for the first time in my life i desperately want to wake up to go back to reality and pick up where i had left off. love is definitely the only possible connection; anytime. and this is a beautiful movie.
