As for what to expect, Suzume no Tojimaric is teased as such: “At the other side of the door was time in its entirety — 17-year-old Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet Kyushu town when she meets a young man who tells her, ‘I’m looking to a door.’ What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright amid ruins as if shielded from any catastrophe, Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.
The morning sky
Within that realm it was as if all time had melted together in the sky –
Drawn to this mysterious door, Suzume’s journey is about to begin.”
