Summary

Mizore Yoroizuka and Nozomi Kasaki are a pair of best friends in their final year of high school. They're both obsessed with the school's brass band club. With Mizore on the oboe and Nozomi on the flute, they spend their days in happiness, until the club begins to practice songs inspired by the fairy tale Liz und ein Blauer Vogel - "Liz and the Blue Bird". Immersed in this story, Mizore and Nozomi begin to realize that there may be no such thing as being together forever.

I find the plot of the film very good and In do like how this film is related back to the book Liz and the blue bird. It is especially beautiful how most of this movie is about music and friendship.

Animation and art style wise it is very good which include background and character models mainly the cute and beautiful girls.

This movie is good overall which any age can enjoy although there is a bit of mild language in the movie but not much.
