Such a good movie

Really good, it's both traumatic and uplifting at the same time, I absolutely recommend it to anyone, regardless if you are a fan of anime or not

Absolutely love it

It’s an emotional rollercoaster with stunning visuals, there are a few action scenes but you don’t get a whole lot of the battles. Just air raids, which is historically accurate. I will say though, don’t watch this if you’re already having a bad day.

Bitter Sweet

WWII story of a young girl artist who gets married and moves to Kure from Hiroshima, leaving her family behind, only to loose them in the war. Touching an sweet. A more inspiring film than "Grave of the Fireflies". Stunning yet simple animation.
