About Suzume

In the peaceful Kyushu village where Suzume, 17, first meets a young guy who says, "I'm looking for a door," the narrative of Suzume begins. What she discovers is a single battered door that is standing upright amidst the debris as though it were safe from whatever catastrophe had taken place. Suzume grabs the knob because she seems drawn to its power.

Doors start opening one after the other across the entirety of Japan, unleashing destruction upon anyone who is nearby. Souta is widely known as a "Closer" because of his job of traveling throughout Japan and locking doors shut.

However, as soon as the door is opened, the enigmatic white cat with the nickname "AristoCat" appears in front of them. "I love Suzume, but you [Souta] are in the way," it said, and as soon as it said those words, Souta transformed into Suzume's childhood chair, which she has treasured ever since she was a child.

As Souta follows the cat posing as a chair with three legs, Suzume chases after him in a panic. On their mission to close doors, they eventually set off on a journey together that will take them from Kyushu through Shikoku, Kansai, and ultimately Tokyo.

During her travels, Suzume meets a number of people who assist her in the same way that she assists them. But when she finally reached the end of her journey, she was confronted with a particular reality that had been ignored for a very long time.
