In approximately 1 hour and 29 minutes into the movie, before Shizuku dozes off on her desk while continuing to write her story, on the top of the bunk bed is Shiho, about to go to bed, and Shizuku is wearing a pinkish red sweater with a white collar shirt underneath, and a yellow pleated skirt. The curtains are closed, it being nighttime. However, after the bad dream, Shizuku is seen wearing the same white collar shirt underneath, however this time a periwinkle blue sweater and a pink red skirt about the same colour as the sweater she wore before the dream. The curtains then suddenly open, and it looks as if it is sunset. Shiho has also disappeared from the top bunk, and in her place are folded sheets. It is also unknown what happened to Shiho from that point on in the film. See more »
During the credits we see people walk by the bridge. The "stray" cat (the one with many names) walks by the bridge as well. Also the young students who had struggled with unrequited love, named Sugimura and Yuko in the American version, meet on the bridge and appear to begin a dating relationship. See more »
I have never seen such a touching love story between two young people, driving each other to achieve their aim in life by doing self-discovery. What makes me realize is we don't have to know someone in real life to push ourselves to achieve something. They can be far away from us or a stranger to be our role model in life.
This story can occur in reality and who knows? The story line is simple but very interesting. It also makes you think whether you have such an inspiration in life, whether our partner give us an inspiration in doing what we want in life or just live another day.
All in all, this love story inspires me and it will be one of my favorite anime at all times.
