Kun: [looks inside train station, sees a high schooler sitting inside] Hello?
Kun (High Schooler): You're supposed to go camping, am I right? Catch bugs, watch fireworks, all that stuff. And you guys will be staying at your grandparents' place. It's the summer you've all been looking forward to. Think of all the happy memories you could be making together. But instead you don't wanna go. Why is that?

User Reviews

 
Some great visuals and lessons, a touching ending, held back by the lead
4 May 2019 | by alonewesignupSee all my reviews

Mirai no Mirai is essentially a story about how family shapes us, even family we're too young to remember meeting or family we have yet to meet. Through our actions, the actions of our ancestors, our present and futures are formed. Dream-like visuals that capture the imagination and mind of a child ensure the movie's entertainment. However, every time the main character opens his mouth you just want him to shut up. They seemingly went out of their way to find the voice actor who could whine in the most annoying, grating-to-the-ears way, and then filled half of the movie's runtime with those scenes.

If you are miraculously unperturbed by this child, you might find this movie to be pure joy. I wish they'd just made him too young to speak at all.
