Watch the Preview:

Watching this film constitutes the moments where I have dreamed of watching an anime movie in the big screen. This year, I’ve seen plenty of anime movies at home such as The girl who leapt through time, 5 centimeters per second and Only Yesterday to name a few. So I went to the cinema to watch this movie even though it was my first time watching alone. Of course, there were pleasant reviews that made me decide that it would be my me-time moment watching. As expected, I had a lot of fun even though the usual thing I do when I watch at home is that I pause halfway for a break which you can’t do in the cinema so I had to hold my bladder for 2 hours that never happened before. Indeed, a very memorable film to me.
