Little did he know that the seed would not yield a plant, but rather, a large and blue expanding house! With the new house came many friends – from elephants to lions to rabbits aplenty, a great deal of new companions showed up to fill the house with joy.

Both shorts are a cute and childish way of looking at the world around us. I'm here with you is a little better with the music than Sora Iro no Tane but they both share a very similar feel that if you enjoyed one you should like the other.
The Yamadas are an ordinary suburban family that enjoy shopping together, watching TV together, and sharing meals just like anyone else. Or so we think! With grumpy grandma Shige wisecracking at the worst times, and Mummy and Daddy Yamada testing each other’s patience at every turn, no family moment ends without a fascinating mishap. But nobody chooses their family, so the Yamadas must learn to savor the joys, forgive each other’s mistakes and, above all, learn lessons that only make them stronger.
Chiefly, that they have a similar visual look and that they were animated by the same studio brought these two to mind, but they also have a bit of humour. While Sora is nowhere near as brilliant and funny as the Yamadas - truthfully, how could it be? - it's still a rather diverting watch for those who enjoy the odder and rarer Ghibli works.
