Momoko, who attends a special school, is both mentally and physically disabled. Every morning she becomes peevish because she can't go to the ordinary school with her twin brother Riki. Her family soothes Momoko by singing her favorite song "The Song of Frogs."

One day, Momoko shouts encouragement to Riki who's playing dodgeball at an open classroom day and Riki's team wins the game. Ryuji, whose team lost the game, is not impressed and demands that Riki stop bringing his 'idiot sister' to school. Riki totally loses control and hits Ryuji with all his might.

The following year, an experiment in integrated education is implemented and Momoko begins to attend Riki's school. Unfortunately, her physical condition takes a turn for the worse and she's sent to a hospital. Riki and all her classmates want to cheer her up and they set a goal of winning a relay race so that they would be able to tell Momoko the good news. Meanwhile, the fastest sprinter, Ryuichi, insists that he won't be taking part in the race.

This is the first review I am planning on posting here. This is because I just can't help but to write one for this movie. I do not think that the art of this anime is very good, especially in comparison to other anime that came out during this time period. But I do believe it adds a kind of element to it, something that differentiates it from the rest. I know it is uncharacteristic to watch old anime that is no longer the latest, but it is good to go back and look at this art style every once in awhile.

The story itself ...

My Sister Momoko is a movie that's worth your time. It's a movie that has lessons to teach and a story to tell, and it achieves this very well with what it has. A good watch for all ages, it may help change the way that we treat people who are different from us.
While the art is mediocre, the characters and heart that this movie has will distract you from that soon. It really gives you insight into the difficulties the characters face surrounding Momoko's disability, including her parents, brother, classmates, and most importantly, Momoko herself. I enjoyed the focus on the disabled characters, ...
