Lee; flying and sinking at the same time 💎’s review published on Letterboxd:
Its been roughly eight years since I rewatched this; at the time I told myself I could never watch this again because every time it would leave my heart feeling too heavy; this little sci-fi-lite anime film would leave me feeling too reflective, too insecure in my own position in life at the time, to the point of shock. I think its bc the ultimate message, to live in the now, to not waste time on regrets, to leap head forward in life, was not one I felt I could abide by; living too much into my depression, too confused and unknowingly dysphoric, to grasp hold of my life. I’m glad now this film only leaves me with a reminder of the person I was all that time ago. I’m glad this film is just a thing of the past.
