Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda by Tatsuyuki Nagai. The main protagonist is Jun Naruse, a chatterbox, who loves fairy tales. One day, she unintentionally reveals her father’s affair by telling her mother about seeing him with another woman. It is her belief in fairy tales which makes her very naive. The consequence of being a chatterbox is the divorce of her parents. After being blamed for the divorce by her father, she ran away and bumped into a fairy egg. The egg seals her words so that she cannot hurt anyone anymore. Since this meeting with the egg, she hasn’t spoken. However, if she speaks, her stomach hurts. The story goes on with Jun along with 3 other classmates being selected for the Charity Committee where they decide to perform a musical.

The anime tells a beautiful story in the style of a fairytale. The message of the movie is that words can hurt people. You can never take them back even if you regret them. Words are sometimes worser than physical violence. Another main topic is the expressing of feelings and emotions. It is a subject a lot of people can relate to, because not everyone can easily express what they feel. However, it can also be a conflict: You should be free to express your feelings but on the other side, sometimes if you do, you can hurt others (especially in case of negative feelings such as anger). Moreover, the movie shows the protagonist’s internal conflicts. The suffering from the divorce and the thought of being her fault destroys her emotionally.

The anime movie includes sad and emotional scenes, but it also contains a few funny elements. The appearance of the egg was a bit weird even though it will get clarified in the end. We liked watching the movie, it was amusing but also a bit kitschy.

 

Cheers,
