Natsuzora: Natsu's Sky
- An animator, her dreams, and a burgeoning industry
In the summer of 1946, nine-year-old Natsu is adopted by her father's army buddy after losing her parents in the war. Life is not easy on her new family's dairy farm in Hokkaido, but with support from Taiju, the family's eccentric grandfather, Natsu grows up happy and strong. She then meets Tenyo, a boy who can draw wonderful horses. He introduces Natsu to the world of animation and she is enthralled. Realizing that she too dreams of drawing for a living, Natsu starts on her path to become a pioneer female animator in a burgeoning industry.
