I myself enjoyed the movie a bunch. It was a mixture of adventure, romance, and fantasy. The animation of the movie was very good and I found the movie itself cute. I am a bit embarrassed to say, but I did end up crying as the movie ended. It was a lovely movie and I definitely would watch it again even if it was 2 hours long, it felt like time skipped when I watched the movie. If you ever have the chance to watch Howl’s Moving Castle, I would definitely recommend it. It is available on HBO.
