You know, I wasn't expecting much out of this. I was expecting something bad, but I got something that genuinely touched me in a way I didn't expect. The characters felt like they each had their own unique personalities and feelings, the animation was fantastic for the style, and something about the simplicity of the story really got me. I'm not saying that I'd add it to a list of my favourites, but I am saying that I think most people should give it a chance and not just dismiss it because of the concept. You may be pleasantly surprised.

The music kept the tone of the film, and the ED planted my feet gently back on the ground after this sweet experience was over.
