Returning to his hometown for the summer, Toto discovers Roma has inducted a new Don Glees member – a younger boy named Drop.

Atsuko Ishizuka’s coming-of-age anime is full of humour and excitement, but come prepared to shed a few tears as well. This is a stunningly animated story about friendship and growing up – and it includes quite a few more references to Ireland than your typical anime.
