The plot is boring.

It ultimately leads to a quirky and enjoyable experience.

The animation and story were fine but it took way too long to get to the point.

The facial expression was simple, yet smooth and the scenery was stunning!

This is very much a beautiful coming of age story about these young children taking more agency over their expression and decisions.

The animation of the eyes, fireworks, flowers are really pretty and found the ending really enjoyable.

It's entertaining, engaging and unique.

She is empty.

You could say it was predictable in that sense.

Other than that, I am giving this one a 8/10 and not higher because I feel the ''fantasy'' elements got a bit too unneededly weird as the movie dragged on, removing value from its more mature themes.

Yeah boring....

I wish the movie took the "slow healing route" and showed her forming a friendship with the boy in the end, as a start of POSSIBLY something more someday.

Visuals were amazingly stunning and 10/10 for me.

The plot is weird and confusing at some times so I would recommend English audio.

As all good coming of age stories go, there are important lessons learned about believing in who you are, and expressing your true emotions, rather than burying them with a smile.
