Composer Joe Hisaishi, famed for Studio Ghibli, commented on the appeal of the film and the challenges of working on its soundtrack. He described the story as unpredictable and philosophical. He thought the soundtrack was quite challenging, as it pervaded the entire film, but with a minimal musical style. He added that the film inspires the imagination of the viewer with the faint scent of the memories of the universe and the effervescence of life.
