A local urban legend claims that lighting fireworks at an abandoned airfield will call the "summer ghost," a spirit that can answer any question. Three troubled teenagers—Tomoya, Aoi, and Ryo—do not know each other yet, but each has their own reasons to show up one day. When a sparkler is lit, a ghost named Ayane appears, and she reveals she is only visible to those "who are about to touch their death." The three teens return home, but Tomoya soon begins visiting the airfield alone, as he becomes obsessed with the mystery surrounding Ayane and the true purpose of her visits.

Inspired by one of his own drawings, this remarkable directorial debut from the celebrated illustrator loundraw brings his lush visual sensibility to a poignant supernatural drama about the struggles of growing up, and the importance of living life to the fullest.

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!

With that being said, in 45 minutes they've done a pretty good job telling a story. If they got like 70+ minutes to tell more about backstory of each character even more, I believe this movie could be much more emotional.

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 read more

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, read more

I really like the art the sound everything here but I just wished that it was longer though the pacing was a lil too fast but it was worth the watch I really like the story because the mc is having the same problem as I do right now and it impacted me by how his action goes and well and animation is decent or I could say pretty good but I hope to see more of your work in the future
Keep up the good work and in the near future I hope to see how better your animation and movies or animation read more

A good movie makes the audience feel like they've journeyed with the characters. No good movie is too long and, no bad movie is short enough. If it's a good movie, the sound could go off and, the audience would still have a perfectly clear idea of what was going on.

Anyways, Summer Ghost is something i like to call "different" and "unique" compared to other anime movies. First of all, many people might of not enjoyed the movie (as much as i did) because, it's only short and, it seemed like they just needed more time to fully complete it (aka felt rushed.) Which i read more
