The first time I watched this show, I was confused and awed and loved it. I'd never liked to not know the answers before, and it was such a precious experience. But rewatching it, that was what changed my life I think. I'd admired Reki's struggle the first time, but seeing it over again, knowing how it goes, I realised that I should be trying as well. There's no royal road to becoming a better person, but there's hints of a path through the trees, and I won't forget those who showed me how to take that most important step.
