Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.

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 a 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.
