beautiful animation and beautiful slice of life, coming of age story that I didn't enjoy because of the constant fatphobia throughout the movie, from the first scenes till the last ones. Nikuko (yes, the character that has her name in the title) is potrayed as a caricature, her size is compared with Totoro, with an elephant...she's 68kg. She's the "funny, fat and stupid character" that has to be one dimensional so other characters can have a development in the movie
Whimsical, heartfelt and a masterpiece!
This is a random movie for me. It's a hidden gem and underated anime. I love it. It's simple yet captivating story. I definitely rewatch this soon. 🥺♥️
