I watched something beautiful today

sure it involved tissues and tears, but it was still beautiful.

So here I am to recommend a movie to anyone who will read this.

-- S, you'd probably like this movie.

Plot from ann.com: The story centers on Asuna, a girl who spends her solitary days listening to the mysterious music emanating from the crystal radio she received from her father as a memento. However, she embarks on a journey of adventure to meet a boy again, and thus comes to know the cruelty and beauty of the world, as well as loss.
