One day a puppy comes to the house of Akari, who has just turned twelve and was trying hard to act strong after her mother suddenly fell ill. She immediately falls in love with the puppy and names it "Socks" after the paws which looked like they had white socks on. Akari was together with Socks day and night. However, as Akari grows up, her feelings and interests move away from Socks. Year by year, their distance grows, which also leads to her physical distance as she moves to a far-off city, and must leave Socks behind to a childhood friend. One day, Akari remembers the 10 promises that she had made with Socks and her deceased mother.
Cast & Credits
The storyline was really good and I liked the whole plot. Girl finds a stray puppy, girl decides to raise it (with permission from her parents of course), girl starts going through changes (along with the dog),and starts growing up to the point where she hardly spends time with her pet. The music was really good, especially the popular American song "Time After Time", which is pretty much the main music in this movie and a good rendition of the original, especially at the end. And the characters were very developed as well as the acting.
I say this is a good movie to watch if you want a movie that is sure to touch your heart and leave you with memories of your first or current pet, or a good film or touching one in general, be sure to watch this film. Just a warning to bring lots of tissues. Your going to need plenty of tissues. All in all 5/5.
