"A festival of miracle, where you can meet whoever you want to meet."

Mihara Shoma, a first-year in high school, receives a message from his best friend Atsushi, who he hadn't heard from in ages. "Wanna come to this cool little festival I found? It's been a while, so I'd like to catch up." Unable to sit around after that, Shoma heads to a ghost village in the mountains for the Tanabata Nanayamatsuri. But he doesn't find Atsushi there. Instead, he meets a girl named Shiori, who has someone she wants to meet as well. Will Shoma be able to meet Atsushi once again?

-un-needed fighting ...

Mixed Feelings
To be honest we came across this one by accident and thought it had been a TV series. We didnt read the synopsis and had no clue what it would be about. Maybe that’s why we were a bit more judgy about this piece.

To be honest, the story is very predictable, as well. A few minutes into the movie we had guessed what was going on. Some motives were very rushly pushed in, ...
