At the top of the hill overlooking a seaside harbor there is an inn called Coquelicot Manor. Since the building is run by her family, Umi Matsuzaki performs many of the tasks associated with managing the small establishment, such as preparing meals for housemates. When she's not at home, she's a student at the local high school — a school currently dealing with a minor crisis.
In anticipation of the upcoming Olympic Games, a beloved old club will be demolished to make way for a modern building. As a result, a large number of students have rallied together, working tirelessly to prevent this from happening. Umi finds herself helping the press club spread the word about this cause, where she befriends Shun Kazama, whom she gradually falls in love with. But Shun is an orphan who doesn't know much about his origins, and when the two start looking for clues about the boy's past, they discover that they may have more in common than the two of them. they may think.

From up on Poppy Hill, another great addition to the Ghibli Studio collection in my opinion. Let me start off by saying that what attracts me to to any work associated with Hayao Miyazaki is the element of magic, creative settings and unforgettable characters. Even Tales of EarthSea, directed by Goro Miyazaki (same director for this movie) had some of these elements...however, you wont necessarily find that when you watch From up on Poppy Hill.
