Intrigued by the tale of a mountain god, six-year-old Hotaru Takegawa loses her way in the ancient forest while visiting her uncle. Exhausted and desperate for help, Hotaru is thrilled to find a masked forest spirit named Gin. She learns the hard way that she should not touch the boy, or he would disappear. In spite of this, Gin leads Hotaru out of the forest and warns her never to return when she promises to come again with a gift.
Paying no heed to his cautionary words, and despite being separated by both distance and planes of existence, Hotaru and Gin become close friends as she visits him every summer. However, their relationship and resolve are put to the test, when romantic feelings conflict with the one and only rule.
Based on Yuki Midorikawa’s manga of the same name, Hotarubi no Mori e is a tale of friendship and compromise between two people who should never have crossed paths, as their lives become hopelessly intertwined.

But due to its popularity, it is also dubbed in many other languages unofficially. You can also watch this movie in Hindi from unofficial sources.
Both plot and characters were amazing and the plot was beautiful yet simple. The story is about a young girl and a spirit who become friends and spend every summer together. The characters were well thought out and so was the plot, unfortunately, people see this as it’s simple so it’s bad and not well thought out which is not the case. I was amazed by how good the art was as well. I have to give this movie a 10/10 because this is the best animation or yet all movies i’ve ever seen.
