Why was I told that the Air movie wasn't worth watching? I really liked it. It was a pretty damn good adaptation of the story given that it's less than half as long as the time spent on it in the TV series. I liked the mild sureality that crept into a lot of the scenes, too.

TV series Mizusu is moe since she acts like a really lonely, really unhappy little girl, but I think I might prefer Movie Mizusu, who acts like an actual teenage girl…and doesn’t whine. Going back to watching borderline retarded Mizusu might be difficult for me.

I also like that it dispensed with the magic from the original story. Even the story of Princess Kanna is really just a local folktale that Mizusu likes, being used as an analogy to her own situation.
