Sixth-grade student Kanna Hayama's love of running becomes a source of grief when she loses her mother Yayoi, whom she shared this passion with. However, her disposition changes after she accidentally discovers an astonishing truth about Yayoi.

One day, Kanna unexpectedly encounters a divine messenger in the form of her favorite rabbit Shiro and a demon boy named Yasha. They reveal to the girl that her mother was an "Idaten"—a descendant of the gods endowed with incredible speed and entrusted to bring offerings from all over Japan to the annual Kamiari Festival in Izumo. As Yayoi's daughter and the new possessor of the Idaten amulet, Kanna is expected to take over this responsibility; otherwise, there will be dire consequences for the country's fate in the year to come.

Enticed by the prospect of seeing her mother once more at the deities' event, Kanna accepts the challenge and enlists Shiro and Yasha to help her on her quest. Unbeknownst to her, there is more than meets the eye to this marathon-like journey that will test not only her physical condition but also her heart's resolve.

Kamiarizuki no Kodomo is a Cretica Universal project, financed through three crowdfunding campaigns on Sony’s First Flight website from March 27, 2019 to June 1, 2020. While initially planned to be released in 2020, the film was delayed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Anime Expo Lite 2021 hosted a preview of the movie on July 3, 2021. Netflix streamed the film on February 8, 2022 after acquiring its distribution license.

Inspired by the Japanese mythology behind Izumo's Kamiari Festival, Kamiarizuki no Kodomo is an original story by Cretica Universal's founder Toshinari Shinohe, who aimed to express and convey Japan's rich culture to the world. A sticker rally was held in Shimane from October 8, 2021 to February 28, 2022, allowing visitors to see locations associated with the movie and obtain special stickers at three designated points.

Kodansha issued three books based on the movie prior to its release on August 12, 2021, September 15, 2021, and September 30, 2021, respectively. The first was co-authored by the original creator himself; the second was a novelized version of the film; and the third was a picture book.

Grief is, from my humble observations, by far one of the most impactful, relatable topics a piece of media can explore.
Whether it's a person, a pet, your favorite character, or even just a community you love, decaying over time, and falling victim to the ever-present 'dark side of the fandom', grief has touched each and every one of our lives in one way or another. Each of us deal with grief differently, and each of us take different things away from the process of grieving; lessons, insights, fears, traumas; each normal, expected in the face of death, and yet each unique and personal.

This story is literally a rip off from Spirited Away mixed with Star Platinum ZA WARUDO from Jojo spiced up a bit by passion of running of whoever the person is that came up with the plot.

In short the plot resolves about young girl who's mother was god tier runner. Said girl liked running also. Too bad, mother has died due to uknown reasons and now the daughter enters the world of spirits and begins her journey to see her mother's soul again. Blah blah blah, you know the drill. It might sound like i'm talking shit about the plot but the execution is actually ...

Tell me you've heard this premise before: A child mourns the loss of their parent, and mysterious events make them into a magical chosen one who is tasked to save the world or fulfill some magical mission. A pretty cliche premise, right? Stuff like that is pretty common in kids' shows and movies. However, I have the philosophy that every single plot has already been done before, but as long as you make good, believable characters that drive the story and put care and effort into what you create, you can create whatever the hell you want.
