Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this imaginative offshoot of Whispers of the Heart has violent scenes of cartoon cats engaged in battles with swords, spears, and chains. But the overarching story of Haru learning that "nobody decides who I am but me" is an inspiring story for mature tweens and up.

Sexual Content

Haru is a normal tween who talks with her friends about her crush on a boy.


Haru is nearly run over by a truck while rescuing a cat in the middle of the road. Lots of scenes of cartoonish violence, with cats fighting with swords, spears, and chains. The King of the Cats detonates a tower, causing Haru to freefall from the sky. A cat is thrown out of the tower. Another cat is shown seemingly dead, in a giant bowl of catnip jelly.
