About A Letter to Momo Blu-ray/DVD
From director Hiroyuki Okiura (Jin-Roh) comes a labor of love, A Letter to Momo!
The last time Momo saw her father, they had a fight. Now all she has left to remember him by is an incomplete letter penned with the words "Dear Momo," but nothing more.
Moving with her mother to the remote Japanese island of Shio, Momo soon discovers three Yokai living in her attic. The trio of mischievous spirit creatures that only she can see create mayhem in the tiny seaside community as Momo tries desperately to keep them hidden. But these funny monsters have a serious side and may hold the key to helping Momo discover what her father had been trying to tell her.

Ratings & Reviews
A heart-warming and family-oriented movie
This is a great movie to watch with your loved ones on a weekend night. The movie follows Momo, a teenager girl who has just lost her father, and her journey with the three Youkai to discover the meaning of the letter that her father left behind. The three Youkai keeps getting Momo in trouble, but at the same helped her in a way that freed her from her guilt and sadness over the lost of her father.
The movie is light, heart-warming, and loving. I can't stop myself from smiling throughout the whole story. I am really glad that I purchased this movie, and I can't wait to watch it again.
Great movie! (good for watching with the family)

The plot of this anime is interesting: guilt and sadness from loosing a family member. With the help of the Yokai the main character is free from it.
The adventures that Momo and the three Yokai come across. It is a great family film to watch together.
What caught my eye was the art, the Yokai on the case are so cute! Its definitely worth buying and watching as soon as you get. (That is what i did anyways lol)
Heartwarming (and breaking) modern treat for all ages!

Whoever would have thought that the director of the morbid and depressing (albeit brilliant overall) JIN-ROH: THE WOLF BRIGADE could churn out such a moving film for anyone of any age? A LETTER TO MOMO could be seen as something of a sister film to Miyazaki's MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO with a mixture of SPIRITED AWAY, but the film brings darker circumstances to the forefront. In this film, the main character has recently lost her father (after having a falling out with him) and spends most of the movie trying to come to terms with it. She's occasionally hindered by three well-meaning but bumbling "goblins" who cause trouble more often than not. Richly detailed animation, tearjerking moments, and a truly moving finale make this a must-see for any animation fan or anyone looking for a great family film. The dubbing by NYAV Post is top notch as well, with Amanda Pace doing a great turn as Momo and everyone else turning in similarly solid performances.
