While the animation is stellar, and the relationship between the characters (especially the main two characters) are nice to behold, the story is really a bore.

It tells the story of two teenagers who try to work together and save an old building on campus from being destroyed to get ready for the 1964 Olympics. This is from the studio who gave imaginary masterpieces like Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, and My Neighbor Totoro.

That is not to say the movie is bad. It is just not up to par with the other films of Studio Ghibli. There is not much here bad for kids, parents. There just is not as much nourishment as in the other films.

Overall: Two Stars **
