I love the original story of this movie and watched the animated version as well.It is very interesting to learn about the surprising reality of an agricultural high school and to increase my knowledge about agriculture.
The movie did not reflect some of the interesting settings of the original story.
That was disappointing, but I think it was worth it just to see the real animals and the school with its vast grounds.
Also, the actor who played Tamako was great, she looked just like she came out of a comic book!
Thanks for a great movie!
