''When Marnie Was There'', (''Omoide no Marnie, "Marnie of My Memories" '') is the 22nd anime film produced by Creator/StudioGhibli, written and directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, and [[FilmOfTheBook based on the novel]] "When Marnie Was There" by Joan G. Robinson. It was released on July 19, 2014.

Anna is an introverted, alienated and [[IllGirl severely asthmatic]] twelve-year-old girl from Sapporo, who only finds solace in her talent for drawing. To aid her health, Anna's parents send her to stay with relatives living in a rural seaside part of Japan, where Anna soon becomes fascinated by a large Western-style manor looming near the marsh next to the village she stays in. The first time she goes there she finds it abandoned and run-down, but on her second visit the house is suddenly full of life and light. More importantly, it appears to be home to a blonde girl named Marnie, who looks exactly like the girl Anna had been seeing in her dreams.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the book, Sandra is pretty rude to Anna, even taking into account Anna's introverted behavior, and the two never become friends. The movie's version of the character, Nobuko, is perfectly friendly towards Anna when she joins her at a festival. While she does upset Anna by pointing out her unusual blue eyes, it's more InnocentlyInsensitive than actual malice (she does so because she genuinely thinks they're cool and pretty). When she gives an angry retort to Anna's outburst, she follows up with the suggestion that they put the whole thing behind them and enjoy the evening. By the end of the film, Anna apologizes for her behavior and Nobuko asks her to join in on trash clean-up next summer.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Anna is frequently noted to act oddly for a child or focus on strange things. The book starts with her acting incredibly detached from other people, enjoying spending time alone, limiting interactions with the family she lives with, and sending postcards to her guardian that are only a few sentences long. She views the world as being a circle with people on the "inside" and on the "outside", believing herself to be on the outside and separate from everyone else. At one point, she goes into a fury over an insult which everyone, even the narrator, considers to be silly. She also doesn't seem to have many friends, but the people she does meet and bond with (Marnie [[spoiler:and, later, the family that moves into her house]]) she's able to form very close ties to. Some of her behavior can be attributed to her [[spoiler:fearing that her foster mother is only keeping her for the money]], but her reaction to that still comes across as unusual for an upset child.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Anna develops a very close and intimate friendship with the titular Marnie that consists of having a OldFashionedRowboatDate, cute dancing together, and declaring their love for each other. She also gets quite upset when Marnie shows interest in a boy. However, the last minute reveal that [[spoiler:Marnie is Anna's DeadAllAlong ''grandmother'' as a child]] really [[RelationshipWritingFumble muddles up]] the story's intentions.
