Mimi o Sumaeba (耳をすませば) translated "if you listen closely" and also popular known as Whisper of the Heart is Studio Ghibli animated fantasy film based on Aoi Hiiragi's manga with the same name. The film was directed by Yoshifumi Kondō and Hayao Miyazaki worked with screenplay. Whisper of the Heart released in 1995, and 7 years later, a side story based on character Baron was released, that was "The Cat Returns".
Like many other Ghibli films in mid 90's, Whisper of the Heart had quite romantic elements and memorable musics. The song "Country Roads" was also used in this film. Baron is my favorite so it's nice to do another fan art of him.
