Reviews of “Proposal for ‘The Day I Bought a Star’” (2004) and related work

“Proposal for ‘The Day I Bought a Star’” (2004Text)

Miyazaki Hayao (writer).

Read in 2021.

Read in Turning Point.

Inoue Naohisa, whose work also inspired the fantasy sequences of Whisper of the Heart (1995), is acknowledged for the original story. The narrative concept reminds me of “Reiko’s Universe Box” (1981).
