Fantastical anime drama (minor spoilers)
19 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

This plot about high school girl who dreams about a fantastical world, which unbeknown to her affects the her world.

The art is nice contrasting the ordinariness of rural life with the luminescent dreamworld.

The soundtrack by Yoko Shimomura (Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, etc) is great

The ending is well done, and credits show a family scrapbook drama of the past.
