Atop a hill overlooking a seaside port sits a boarding house named Coquelicot Manor. Since the building is run by her family, Umi Matsuzaki carries out many of the duties involved in managing the small establishment, such as preparing meals for her fellow boarders. When she isn't at home, she is a student at the local high school—one that is currently dealing with a small crisis.

In anticipation of the upcoming Olympic Games, a beloved old clubhouse is set to be demolished to make way for a modern building. As a result, a large part of the student body has banded together, working tirelessly to prevent this from happening. Umi finds herself helping the newspaper club to spread information about this cause where she befriends Shun Kazama, whom she gradually begins to fall in love with. But Shun is an orphan who doesn't know much about his origins, and when the two begin searching for clues to the boy's past, they discover that they may have a lot more in common than either of them could have thought.

This may be my Ghibli bias coming out. This should be an 8/10 movie, but the Ghibli charm is enough to bump this and any other movie up some.
There is so much love put into the animation. Every setting is so meticulously detailed and beautifully drawn that every frame looks like a painting. And there are not mystical elements whatsoever in this movie. All of this beauty comes from the love of the mundane and the ordinary. They make the common street and the average house feel so magical to be in because of the love they put into drawing it. All of the animators ...

Mixed Feelings
This movie was cute and kept me interested throughout the whole screening. I was trying to find a cute romance anime movie and stumbled across this one. Even though the plot was not super complex, I would say I still enjoyed watching and felt I stayed engaged throughout. I enjoyed both MC’s and how they were portrayed. I was not expecting anything crazy for the romance in this movie because the characters are kids but its nice to see the cute little romance spark up between the characters. With that said, this movie was like walking through a park on a spring day and then ...

I had high hopes for this anime movie as a huge fan of cute romance anime movies, but I was extremely disappointed. This would have been such a better movie if they removed the whole "sibling" arc, which made me feel uncomfortable, and even after it was sorted out, made me not support the relationship as much I would have. Instead, they should have focused on the actual characters, because after watching this movie, I can barely tell you even one of their personality traits. As with all Studio Ghibli movies though, the art and music were absolutely amazing.

Would not waste your ...
