It is said that fireworks can calm the souls of the dead. For Tomoya Sugisaki, Aoi Harukawa, and Ryou Kobayashi, fireworks are what allowed them to meet the Summer Ghost. Believed to be the spirit of a young woman who committed suicide, the Summer Ghost only appears in a specific area and can only be seen by those who are within arm's reach of death.

Tomoya is a creative soul being crushed by his academic obligation to get into a good university. Aoi is a meek girl who is relentlessly bullied by her classmates. Ryou is a former basketball star who had to forfeit his passion following a grim diagnosis. The only thing these three have in common is their ability to see the Summer Ghost. The Summer Ghost is said to be able to answer any and all questions pertaining to death—something the three teenagers desperately want to know more about.

Dissatisfied with their initial meeting, Tomoya sets out to find the Summer Ghost once again. But the more time he spends with the ghost, the more the mystery surrounding her existence unravels.

First of all this is not a movie for everyone, The story requires a lot of interpretation with so little time because the movie's pace is really fast so pay attention!

Artstyle is great, although the animation seem rough, the lighting and color tone are make up for it. Which help a lot to understand the character's view of the world.

Soundtrack is also great. It fit ...

Summer Ghost is a short but quite complicated movie to watch. Everyone has their own share of problems. A person can look completely fine and satisfied on the outside, but we never know what's hiding behind that smile and laughter. However, no problem is worth more than the life you have been given. That is message I got from watching this movie.

The art of the movie is very pretty. I like the designs of the characters and the way they are drawn. The color is bright but not vibrant; it has that 'dull' tone going on. The animation is choppy most of the time, ...

Mixed Feelings
I loved the art direction and the music at times. Everything looked and sounded nice.

But really, if you seen enough anime, you could probably tell that it must have been amateur hour for character writing, because the characters are BLAND. The delivery of what they were saying wasn't the problem (most of the time), I liked the natural neutral delivery (most of the time). It was the dialogue pace. When you would expect a dramatic/introspective pause, the characters would keep talking and what they would say was supposed to make you feel something. This disconnected me from feeling what the characters were feeling, and it ...
