The day before her birthday, Akane is asked to retrieve her birthday present from her aunt Chi's shop. While looking around, she chances upon a mysterious slab with a hand-shaped cavity in it. Curious, she places her hand in it, and—to her surprise—it fits perfectly. The next thing she knows, a strange alchemist named Hippocrates and his apprentice Pipo appear, calling Akane the legendary "Goddess of the Green Wind."

The two eccentrics claim to be from a different world connected to the shop's basement. With the peace of their world in jeopardy, Hippocrates and Pipo seek the help of the only one capable of saving it from destruction: Akane. Forced to accompany them on a journey to restore the land's harmony, Akane—with her aunt in tow—sets off to discover a magical new place.

This is my First review ever on Anime List net this movie is so underated!
honestly i really enjoyed this movie so much and i dont care about the story at all but it makes me roll my eyes to the visuals.

The art is so beautiful and so the visual it really rolls my eyes during the river scence or whatever.

I like the characters but theres no backstory for them and i wanna know more overall the character design is good

The story is like a straight forward yep everyone is hating it cause its feels meh but honeslty i dont care about the story ...

Mixed Feelings
I really wanted to enjoy this movie but I feel like the movie is rushed with lack of detail, explanation within character relationships, and seems a bit cheesy within the storyline. it's just BAM this happens and that, and you just go along for the ride slowly piecing things together.

I absolutely ADORE Ilya Kuvshinov art which you can spy throughout the film and honestly I expected more quality rather than some season 2 of a good show budget.

I skipped through and it felt a little painful to watch considering it seemed they threw things in to see if it'd work out ://

Two words: cat balls

Okay, now for the more serious overview:

It's unfortunate that a film with such nice animation has such cliché, boring, and weird writing. The animation is good for what it is, and that's that. The world building makes no sense, the characters are surface level **at best,** it has weird flashback character cuts, it has no idea how to hold tension or pacing, the gags are dumb, the protag is a Mary Sue that suddenly gets better when she needs to, AHHHHHHHH. You can't even appreciate the animation really because of how stupid the movie is.

I saw another negative review, ...
