Diving deep into the realm of Japanese obscurity, we have a Sanrio animated feature titled Fairy Florence. Sanrio is the company that makes Hello Kitty franchise works and merchandise.

This film feels like a slow discovery of his forgotten feelings for music and a compassionate departure from horticulture. The premise is interesting and is brought to life in a fantasy setting with the use of colour and music to give off a fairy tale vibe.

I particularly liked that mostly everything was referring read more
