Shizuku Tsukishima does little more than read. Shortly after realizing someone name Seiji Amasawa takes out books before her, she finds a cat riding the train on its own. Following it, she comes to an antique shop leading her to follow her own dreams.
It’s cute. The end was annoying but it was good. A cat statue kept moving positions and I’m not sure if it was on purpose or not. Then they had “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by John Denver throughout the entire thing. Apparently sang by Olivia Newton-John in the opening which was slow but it at least had the proper lyrics. Never once did the use the same lyrics. Every time they sang it, it was different. That got annoying. The end had a fairy tail ending. I guess you could argue it makes sense but…
Anyway, I’d recommend it. It’s fun and cute and a great family movie.
