YesAsia Editorial Description

Based on Takagi Nobuko's award-winning autobiographical novel, writer-director Katabuchi Sunao's Mai Mai Miracle explores an adolescent friendship that echoes the works of his mentor Miyazaki Hayao. Produced by animation studio MADHOUSE (Summer Wars, Paprika), Mai Mai Miracle eschews the studio's signature fantasy style for a sentimental drama that appeals to audiences of all ages with 50s nostalgia and visually lush images of the Japanese countryside. Despite having a weak opening at the box office, positive word-of-mouth managed to spread, leading to sold-out screenings in its limited Tokyo release. In the end, the film had a rare seven-month theatrical run around Japan and won recognition at the 2010 Media Arts Festival. In addition to local acclaim, Mai Mai Miracle was also nominated for Best Animated Film at the fourth Asia Pacific Screen Awards.

Set in the mid-1950s is Yamaguchi Prefecture, Mai Mai Miracle follows the adventures of Kiiko, who had just moved to the city of Hofu from Tokyo, and local girl Shinko. Living in a city filled with preserved historical monuments from the Heian period, Shinko likes to listen to stories from that period and imagine herself in them. Fascinated by Kiiko's Tokyoite ways, Shinko quickly makes friends with the new arrival, and the two get into various adventures involving a goldfish and a thousand-year-old legendary figure.

This edition comes with a 16-page booklet and various special features.
