It's always a good sign when something like this gets popular, acclaimed and makes significant box office without any sort of benefits campaign and weird marketing and strictly because it's critically well received by fans. Really not something I see happen often with anime anymore where it hits up the mainstream with a not particularly commercially established studio and a new IP.

Nice to see that smaller budget youth drama movies such as this one and last year's Anthem of the heart getting good box office results and critical acclaim. I'm looking forward to seeing this movie, as well as Kyoto Animation's upcoming A silent voice.
