“Kokoro ga Sakebitgaatterunda (The Anthem of the Heart)” Japanese Animation Movie Review

[ WARNING: May contain spoilers!!!] This movie was so sad to watch…

So a young girl named Jun Naruse was known to be a “chatterbox” when she was a little girl. She loved fantasies and loved to visit a castle on the top of a mountain. That castle was actually a love hotel, but she didn’t know about it. One day after school, she sees her dad with another woman and runs to tell her mother that her dad was a “prince” and the other woman was a “princess”. As a result, her parents split up and just before her father moves away, he tells Jun that it was “all her fault”.  Jun starts crying and meets an egg who tells her he will help her seal away her words and stop her talking as it will lead to future hardships. A couple years later when Jun is in high school, she is known to be a private person and does not speak. Her homeroom teacher picks her and three other students for Charity Committee members. The other three students are: Takumi Sakagami, Natsuki Nito, and Daiki Tasaki. Each of the students have some type of hardship they are facing. Originally, Jun declines the offer, but then decides to join. The members decide to do a muscial as the event for their class. Jun writes the musical herself since she wanted a story to convey her feelings through. The story follows the 4 as they become friends and help each other through hard times.

There’s more to the story but I didn’t want to spoil the ending~ But seriously, I wanted to cry like 2 or 3 times while watching this movie. I mean the obstacles Jun faces and how her mother treats her is so sad to watch… ** spoiler alert** AND THE WORSE PART WAS THAT MY SHIP DIDN’T SAIL!!!! the ending was cute and all, but seriously, I wanted Jun and Takumi together!!!! T^T Oh, and not to mention the title was so long to type….

The movie is around 2 hours and it was so good from beginning to end! You should definitely check it out!! It came out September, 2015 so it’s pretty new :)))

Here’s a little picture of the cover:
