I like Ghibli-movies as much as anyone else, but apparently I'm in the minority that I didn't really care for this one.
The animation is fine, and while the plot is a somewhat mundane teen drama, that's not a huge problem by itself. But I simply didn't understand the characters. Especially the love interest, who is just capricious, unlikeable, and hard to get a feeling for. Sure, they are teens, but the character growth is fairly limited.
A very pleasant surprise.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
