Synopsis
A first person narrative novel. I died and was kicked out of the cycle of reincarnation because of the sin I made. An angel told me that I won a lottery and he gave me a chance to remember the sin. My spirit possessed the body of a 14 year old boy Makoto, who committed a suicide and I tried to recollect my memory. I felt distressed by the terrible circumstances of Makoto and the fact that I was borrowing his body. I started to realize that people are hurting each other because the world is too colorful to distinguish the true color of themselves from others'.

Oh my gawd, I'm watching this (half way through it right now) and I have to say it's amazingly good. It's been a while since a movie has moved me so much, sorta.

I'd really like to read this novel, the barriers of language are restrainning me... Fml.

Deep but I rather have some mecha and I believe there's a sad ending to this story. Not good for me, I don't like purely sad endings.

Wait so theres no mecha? Why is sunrise producing this than ?___?


Because non-mecha anime from Sunrise scored better then mecha anime from Sunrise (apart from the Gundam en hype series) ??

It's not so rare from them, their non-mecha anime is from freakin' high quality and they do a better job on them then they do on Code Geass or such. :P

I really liked the last movie of Hara Keiichi so I'm really looking forward this one. The synopsis is very interesting too.

A new Sunrise Production neh?

Ever since I saw the major good quality of Kekkaishi (and several others) Sunrise became one of my favorite producers, nice to hear about a new project.
