Shinko, is a third grade elementary school student with a magically active imagination. She spends a lot of her time listening to her grandfather’s history lessons, imagining what her town was like 1,000 years earlier.
One day, a sad and sombre girl called Kiiko transfers to Shinko’s school from Tokyo. A strong friendship soon grows between the two girls as Shinko helps Kiiko come out of her shell and deal with her loss - all thanks to their adventures, both imagined and real.
From Sunao Katabuchi (director of In This Corner of the World, Assistant Director of Kiki’s Delivery Service and director of Black Lagoon) and animation production by Madhouse (One Punch Man, Perfect Blue).
