The Boy From Ipanema depicts a love story between the main characters. They meet on a beach and overtime they slowly develop feelings for each other.

The boy gradually overcomes his memories from his first love as the focus on the relationship deepens.

This is a simple story without any confliction caused and purely concentrates on the main characters.

Would like to make a note that the animation in this was done creatively and beautifully.

The music was simple, easy-listening and fit perfectly into the movie to create an 'airy' yet beautiful feel.

I gave a low rewatch value due to the reasoning that the story is simple, and therefore it will be boring to watch again.
