This is my very first review so if it's not that awesome, I apologize.

I'm usually not a fan of old anime, but it's not like I never give them a chance. This was also an exception, and oh how glad I am it was.

Ritsuko has trouble walking, she's been ill since birth, but did her best to keep up with the others, to be able to walk like the others.

If I really don't want to spoiler anything, I better not write anything, because that's the way I watched this too. I barely knew anything about what would happen.

The art is of course old, but not read more

Just when I thought all hope was lost for the three "disability movies" which I like to call them, I randomly come across the fact that Evetaku just fansubbed this...months ago! Whoa! When I saw that on MAL, I rushed over to the site to confirm it, and there it was, right on the bottom of the front page! I immediately downloaded it and watched it right after I got home from school. Thank GOD this thing got subbed! Maybe there's some hope for Happy Birthday: Inochi Kagayaku Toki and Momoko: Kaeru no Uta ga Kikoeru yo after all in terms of the fansubbing department!
