This is your baby sister, Kun.
Isn't she precious?
[gasping in amazement]
[pokes his finger against her delicate hand]
You have to be gentle with her.
[gently takes hold of the baby's hand; she opens her eyes]
She's awake. I think she's staring at you, Kun.
Come on, her eyes can't even focus yet.
Well she sure looks like she's staring to me.

I saw this movie last night and having never seen any anime films before I was a little skeptical, but in the end was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
The opening of this film was beautiful and a treat for the eyes. The birds eye view of the city we receive was so realistic that on first thought, I was sure that it was real and not animated. Other highlights for me were a sequence with trains running along the train line that I thought was done well and I liked the use of colours that helped define different times of the day.
The characters in this film are very well crafted. I cannot begin to say which is my favourite as each was so good. Kun definitely stands out as being I think the main character, although this film is named after his sister, the story did revolve more around Kun and how he felt about his new baby sister and his feelings towards his parents after her birth. I believe the director has well captured the typical behaviour and emotions of children and adults throughout this film.
I laughed a lot during the movie. The comedy in "Mirai" was well written and played out often quite naturally but also with bit of the melodramatic.
I would recommend this movie for anyone who is an anime fan, who likes to laugh and who enjoys a heartwarming, thought-provoking movie
My compliments to all who worked on the making of "Mirai". It is a job well done. I give it 4 and a half stars (or 9/10).
