Well, I was in for quite a shock today. I should have remembered this from seeing advertisements for it when I was in Japan, but my Japanese readings skills didn’t quite comprehend that there’s a MAGIC TREE HOUSE ANIME MOVIE. Why didn’t I know about this before? I can’t believe I didn’t know about this before. My mind was absolutely BLOWN. These were the books that got me into reading as a young child and even got me more interested in history. I devoured all the titles that my elementary school library and classrooms had stocked. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one, either. They were always the hardest books to get a hold of. My roommate and I were about squealing with joy when we found out. Texted a couple of friends and their reactions amounted to this:
So instead of studying or reading or doing anything remotely productive for an hour and a half, my roommates and I ended up watching the entire film. And it was wonderful and adorable and ALL THE NOSTALGIC FEELS. ❤ I’m so happy they didn’t try to redo the setting in Japan or anything like that. I think the world is automatically a little bit better for this existing. I’ve got a trailer for you too, though it isn’t subtitled. However, I think you will pretty much understand the gist of it. The art style is so beautiful too~ I’m in complete fangirl mode and just wanted to share it with you. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as my friends and I did!
