    He’s 15, she’s 27! 12 years distance to me is not really a big issue, but at least he gotta be like 18?!? in that case, at least he is consider an *adult* for anything to be happening…you know!=D but 15? that’s like a boy fall in love with a woman! Quite enjoy the music and the animation, though not that much about the story. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Guest. Interesting that you said “12 years distance” instead of saying “12 year age gap”. Distance seems to be a theme for Makoto’s previous films such as 5cm per Second and Voices of Distant Stars. However, for me, the biggest shock factor is not in their age gap but there are actually straight 15 year old boys so fascinated with becoming a cobbler in the 21st century?
