adambobby’s review published on Letterboxd:
I watched this in English on amazon which was clearly a un-cleaned up digital version of a vhs tape, complete with occasional rhythmic tape hiss and horizontal glitches. The kid’s voices sounded like they were played through a lite robotic voice filter. These are all positives, but I assume the Japanese is better. I’m giving this an extra half star for all the reasons listed above and another half star cuz takahata is a god.
