Treasure the experience. Dreams fade away after you wake up.
This was beyond amazing. This film is so special. One of my favorite anime films I've ever seen and one of my favorite anime stories. I didn't know if I'd like this more than his previous film, The Garden of Words, but I do. The synopsis of this film sounds very basic, but as the story unfolds and there's that unexpected plot twist that happens... shook me to my core. Then just watching everything happen afterwards 🤯. Amazing.
Also, the animation is so stunning, especially Taki's flashback montage. And soundtrack is so great. The way Makoto Shinkai anime films are so cinematic, I love it. I'm obsessed.
