- The lovely X10 has summarized the parts of the story that Tsumugi is referencing with his bluebird of happiness speeches.
"In the story, the characters first go to the land of memories to find a blue bird to heal a sick child. they find that the old blackbird now looks blue, but when they put it in a cage and try to bring it home to the land of the living, it's black again.
Next, they visit the Palace of Night to continue their search. The find thousands, millions of blue birds in the moonlit garden, and try to bring them back to the land of the living. However, the birds aren't the real blue bird they were looking for, and die when exposed to the light.
The real blue bird in the story turned out to be the plain old bird they had at home the whole time. They bring it to give the sick child, but warn that blue birds (happiness) can change their color in an instant. The moral could be interpreted as to enjoy the happiness you have now while it's there, rather than looking all over the past and future for eternal (forever blue) happiness."
