Tatsuyuki NAGAI 長井龍雪

Her Blue Sky


Nippon Animation   ³ 

17-year-old Aoi is crazy about music, because it gives her comfort. Since the death of her parents 13 years ago, she has lived with her sister Akane, who once gave up her own future for Aoi’s sake. Instead of starting an exciting life in Tokyo with her musician friend Shinnosuke, Akane stayed in her small hometown. The sacrifice of her sister still weighs heavily on Aoi. But then her orderly world suddenly falls apart: Not only does 31-year-old Shinnosuke return to the small town for a concert, but at the same time his 18-year-old double appears! A bittersweet story about growing up, timeless love, and two sisters who have more in common than they realize.
