This film was pretty interesting, if a bit odd...
I don't know much at all about Japanese folklore, so I was probably missing something. I thought the art was quite pleasant; it reminded me a bit of "The Last Unicorn." The characters looked alright. I think Aya was cute, and the dragon looked cool. The little horse was adorable! The old woman in the woods was scary, though...

As a person with minimal experience with Japanese folklore, I thought this movie was pretty good. At times, it really freaked me out...And some parts were a little awkward.....I'm glad he found a loincloth.

This is definitely something I will read more
