Several arguments with God later, he travels back in time and…properly, we gained’t wreck it for you. This anime film is a searingly intense mash-up of types, genres and narrative methods. A guide-pleased feminine junior-excessive student, a young man whose family is obsessed with music, and a magical cat are however a couple of of the weather in this troublesome-to-summarize, somewhat whimsical romance. Tragically, its director, Yoshifumi Kondo, died of a brain aneurism at 47. He was set to succeed the good Hayao Miyazaki and based mostly on this lovely function (Kondo’s only completed work), it might have been a gloriously impressed reign.
