Whisper of the Heart DVD/Blu-Ray
Whisper of the Heart is one of the most romantic and lesser-known Ghibli movie to many western anime fans. Two junior high students, the bookworm, Shizuku and violinist, Seiji fall in love after he checks out all of the books in the library in the hopes of getting Shizuku’s attention. They spend a bulk of the movie encouraging each other’s dreams and following their hearts. It’s also a love story within a love story within a love story. Seiji’s grandfather fell in love with a beautiful woman during World War II and they purchased matching cat statues to signify their relationship. I won’t give away the hopelessly romantic plot line, but trust me, you’ll want to watch this and cuddle on the couch with your honeybunch.
Not only is it a great gift for childhood sweethearts but for any couple that want to see each other succeed and live passionate lives.
Get it on Amazon.
