The team that won the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival Anime Division Grand Prize for The Tatami Galaxy in 2010 joins forces again to create an animated feature film based on a youth novel that sold over 1.5 million copies. In this cinematic version, they take the original novel, which concerns all four seasons, and portray it in a single evening. Their expressive efforts shine in moments that could only be made on film.
