The themes about loneliness are important and interesting, but the ending was uninteresting, so overall I didn't like the movie all that much.

Sasaki as a cat, who Hinode refers to as Taro

Instant Comments: 1a: When the strange big cat shows up asking for her human half that's when things get in interesting.
1a: oh it was so crazy of her to jump down like a cat.
