This movie was based on a children's book series that I grew up with, so I decided to watch it. I really liked how the character designs were, especialy morigan's agohe. The story didn't exactly folow the books, but it made it work for a single movie. I'm actualy a bit dissapointed that Japan realised it would make a good movie, yet america hasn't touched any of the clasic children's chapterbook series like the Magic Treehouse and Junie B. Jones.
I really would recomend this to you even if you haven't read the books as it is a sweet and adorable little movie.
