Atop a hill overlooking a seaside port sits a boarding house named Coquelicot Manor. Since the building is run by her family, Umi Matsuzaki carries out many of the duties involved in managing the small establishment, such as preparing meals for her fellow boarders. When she isn't at home, she is a student at the local high school—one that is currently dealing with a small crisis. In anticipation of the upcoming Olympic Games, a beloved old clubhouse is set to be demolished to make way for a modern building. As a result, a large part of the student body has banded together, working tirelessly to prevent this from happening. Umi finds herself helping the newspaper club to spread information about this cause where she befriends Shun Kazama, whom she gradually begins to fall in love with. But Shun is an orphan who doesn't know much about his origins, and when the two begin searching for clues to the boy's past, they discover that they may have a lot more in common than either of them could have thought.

It’s that charming film that immerses you back into the “good times”, where life was innocent, simple, and full of romantic endeavors.


On of Ghibli’s only flicks that is neither Hayao or Takahata, and it really just ends up being very standard in flavor without their vision


‘Animal House’ the anime by Ghibli. Still very good.


There are so many scattered ideas, half the time I don’t even know what this film is about. Aside from that, it’s got some good backgrounds


This was really sweet and heart warming.


Honestly did not see that coming


An excellent slice-of-life entry in the Ghibli catalog, and one of the rare Ghiblis with no fantasy elements. Goro Miyazaki makes his mark.



    Anime was a mistake
