This anime is a historic Outstanding Work. If you don't watch because the character design is old, you're no longer an otaku. The proposition that the anime presented us after watching it was very fundamental to life. It is a must-watch work.

Yukito Kunisaki is on a journey in search of the Winged Maiden who was bound to the sky centuries ago, after hearing an old childhood tale from his mother. As Yukito shows his puppet show to people in an attempt to make some money, he finds himself in a small town in which he did not expect to stay very long. However, when he meets an unusual girl named Misuzu, things take a drastic turn as he is invited to stay with her.
By staying in the quaint town, Yukito soon becomes friends with the locals. As he gets to know them better, he learns of their problems and decides to help, putting his search for the Winged Maiden on hold. With his search on hold, and his growing attachment to Misuzu and the small town, will Yukito ever find the Winged Maiden, or is she closer than he thought?
3. Advanced can Learn Japanese with This Anime
The prevalence of difficult words is as high as 10.1 terms/episode. And because the words come from different genres, you’ll have a hard time learning them. There are also a lot of idioms, hospital-related words, religious words, and sci-fi elements that will take a lot of time to understand. The story itself is very difficult, and there are many words that modern Japanese don’t usually use. Therefore, it is a very difficult animation for Japanese learners to practice listening. This work may be difficult even for proficiency- or higher-level learners, so I don’t recommend learning Japanese with this story.
