Why did i watch this...
I knew i was going to be destroyed by this... i've seen the original short story cause it's an extra on voices of a distant star.
but here i am choking back sobs and trying to see the screen through teary eyes.
and just when i think i'm done crying a new wave hits...
i'm gunna go hug my cats... sure they hate it but i just want to cuddle them after that.
so yeah... 4 episodes, each just shy of 8 minutes each and it ends exactly how it has to end... even if that means i'm gunna be sitting here a sobbing mess for the rest of the day.
I do love seeing Makoto shinkai's first (at least i think it was his first... voices of a distant star may have been the first) short film but with a team and budget. I love that it's got the same voice actor playing the girl... the animation is lovely... the way the cat is drawn is perfect... got all those little movements down just right.
but dammit my heart
go watch it on crunchyroll, the final episode wont be available till next week but it really wont take you long to get through it all.
