    Allow me to join in the chorus of "the animation is so good!!"

    But seriously, it can't be overstated. It is such a beautiful film that perfectly captures the essence of the folklore. There are a lot of really cool framing/split-screen scenes that really standout and highlight just how intricate the design is. This also aids in the rapid pace of the film, sweeping across the landscape and narrative gracefully, yet swiftly.
