“::sniffle sniffle:: Waaaaaaahhhhhhhhh 😭😭😭😭
(My son has recently gotten into To Your Eternity so I watched it with him when he was home sick with a cold and bawled my eyes out!)”
While it’s always interesting to learn about the anime that strike an emotional chord with famous people, it is doubly interesting in this case since Hikaru Utada‘s “PINK BLOOD” is actually the opening theme song of To Your Eternity. It’s got to be a weird feeling to realize you’re already a big part of an anime that brings you to tears.
