The story is based on the idiosyncratic autobiographical novel "Mai Mai Shinko," by Nobuko Takagi, winner of the prestigious literature award - Akutagawa Prize. Madhouse, one of Japan's foremost animation studios ("The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, "Paprika") put together her imaginative schoolgirl era with gifted director Sunao Katabuchi (acclaimed director of TV animation series "Black Lagoon", and assistant director of "Kiki's Delivery Serivce"), who studied under Hayao Miyazaki, into a beautiful and energetic animated film.
A heartwarming story that revolves around the friendship of a young girl is depicted in this animation that overflows with elements of fantasy.

A tender-hearted treat
While produced by the folks at MADHOUSE, "Mai Mai Miracle" has the look and feel of a Studio Ghibli film ... and that's a very good thing. The movie tells of the blossoming friendship between Shinko, a lively girl with an active imagination, and Kiiko, a quiet, lonely girl transplanted from Tokyo to rural Hofu. Shinko loves to listen to her grandfather speak of Hofu's glorious past and the two girls bond with each other while dreaming of a friendship with the governor's daughter of the long-ago Heian era.
"Mai Mai Miracle" spins its delicate tale at a deliberate pace, weaving in themes of separation and loss. Small children may find the movie to be a bit slow and dark, but teens and adults will embrace the subtle charms of this character-driven little gem. Highly recommended.
