* WriteWhatYouKnow: InUniverse: Shizuku struggles with her translation of "Country Roads" -- she is a city girl, after all -- and her first attempt, comes out as a storm of clichés. Her "Concrete Roads" parody, on the other hand -- ''"Western Tokyo, mountain Tama..."'' is spot on, and very funny. Her final version ditches the whole going back to the country motif, and is instead about choosing one's road in life.

Book-loving junior high school student Shizuku Tsukishima notices someone named Seiji Amasawa has previously checked out all of her library books. While she's intrigued by the notion of a boy who shares her interests in literature she's got to get cracking if she wants to achieve her goal of reading 30 books over summer vacation. So she sets out for school to meet a friend and chivy a teacher into letting her borrow yet another book from the library. Still, Shizuku can't help wondering just who Seiji Amasawa might be. Hopefully he isn't anything like that annoying boy who poked fun at her song lyrics.

* CoversAlwaysLie: In the same vein of NeverTrustATrailer, the back of the Disney DVD box heavily implies that this is another Ghibli fantasy film. There's a picture from her fantasy writing, along with the decription of Seiji being "mysterious" and the Baron being "a magical cat figurine who helps [Shizuku] listen to the whispers in her heart. Soon, Shizuku's exciting adventures carry her far beyond the boundaries of her imagination." Metaphorically speaking, yes, you could say that. But literally is what the box is trying to sell.

Subplots include the trials of junior high romance for Shizuku's friends and Shizuku's efforts to translate John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads" into a Japanese version for her school's chorus club. The movie is bookended by Olivia Newton-John's 1973 cover version (which was a big hit in Japan) and the film's Japanese version, sung by Yoko Honna.
