upping my rating for studio ghibli films after a rewatch is now my hobby
this was absolute madness in the best possible way. it’s one of those films that you don’t fully understand when viewing for the first time but as you watch it more, the meaning starts to unravel. i loved how the score, the animation style and the writing work so cohesively to create this chilling world of ambiguity. as my first introduction to horror anime, i can already tell this is going to be the sub-genre for me.
