Pretty good.

I'd recommend watching this movie. I watched it, and I was entertained.

Animation - The art in this movie is pretty good, along with the direction. The character and camera movements are very fluid.

Story & Characters - For the most part this movie makes sense. The characters are well-developed (well the adults are, I have more than a few questions regarding those kids) and interesting. The mystery isn't very complex, but with the romance sub-plot and only 1 hour to develop everything, its pretty good. Regarding the romance sub-plot, the two leads have chemistry, and their romance is believable and fun to watch.

Sound - On the DVD I watched this movie, you could only watch it with English sub & dub. As I don't speak or read Japanese, I had to watch the English audio. It ok. Not great, but decent.

Additional - There are some scenes in here with mild sexual assault and while its not very extreme, it is uncomfortable.
