Schoolchildren Norimichi, Yûsuke and Jun'ichi want to know if fireworks look round or flat from the side. They make a plan to find the answer at a fireworks display, while Nazuna schemes to run away with Norimichi or Yûsuke, whoever wins at the pool.
The conference held at the mid July originally should be the announcement conference for the completion of this film, but the animation was not finished by then. The preview screening was pushed back to the early August, about only ten days before the official release date in Japan. See more »
Too confusing and doesn't live up to their other films
I walked in to this movie about 10 minutes late, and I thought maybe I missed something important, but I looked it up online and I didn't really miss anything.
The films by this company are normally all very good, and this one looked promising, but looks aren't everything.
The storyline seems simple enough, but once they throw in the magic/sci-fi aspects, it becomes very confusing to follow. The characters flip flop between being sympathetic, and seeming to have ulterior motives. I wasn't sure if Yusuke was a nice guy or a jerk, if Norimichi actually cared about Nazuna, or if Nazuna was a sweet girl or hidden psychopath.
Once the plot point is shown, there is one ending that the characters could choose that would make everyone happy and fix everything, but it never came to mind. The ending is very confusing and threw too much at the audience.
I really wanted to like this movie, but in the end it didn't affect me as much as Your Name or Girl Who Leapt Through Time.
