The absolute best movie you never want to see again. It was so absolutely amazing, but so heartbreakingly sad that I don't think I can bare to watch it ever again. 10/10

5/5 Such a good movie but so sad... :( I can't even look at this page without my heart breaking a little...

I cried and didn't stop until it ended. Oh my gosh it reminded me of what some childs had survived or died, without shelter, parents, siblings, food... and there is still people who are dying just like that, if they survive today the might not tomorrow until they find help. I pray for them to have peace at the hereafter go to paradise, and have peace in this world. Amen!!! good movie it is so touching 5/5

I'll never watch this movie again. I just can't afford to cry that much one more time. This was pure emotion. It just makes me want to be a better man so that the things i saw in this movie (and it was actually reality during WW2) never happen to anyone ever again. Especially innocent children. Puts every tragedy i ever saw to shame.

great film made me cry, but it was the story line that did it for me. A war film though the eye's of a child. Must watch 10/10

I cried watching this, I have seen it about 2 or 3 times. It is a very memorable film that really gets in your head and make you think about the horrific tragedies war can bring. It's up there with one of the greatest war films including Schindler's list. Although it's animated it doesn't fall short on anything.

It's breathtakingly beautiful. And completely heart wrenching. Never has a movie moved me to my core and shattered my heart like this movie did. It is the best movie you never want to see again. 10/10

This is a wonderful movie. It touched me right from the beginning. Great animation,music and story line. If you're a big cry baby like me you will most likely end up crying when you watch this movie. Don't let this discourage you this is an excellent watch. 10/10 P.S. I hated the aunt!

No movie has affected me so much as this one has. It exemplifies the horror that the civilians in Japan had to go through. Given the background that this is based on a true story of the writer who went through the same trauma and wrote this one as an apologetic tribute gives food for thought. I called up my little sister in the night after watching this one.. Lol!! One of the best from the stable of Studio Ghibli. Its a sin for anime fans to give this a miss! 10/10.

This was a pretty phenomenal movie. It does a great job of showing some of the postwar experience in Japan. Many people forget that anime does take the real and somber route from time to time. This is a wonderful example of how anime can be much more than the display of fantasy that the mainstream population thinks it is.

wow, this movie was just so depressing. I was in tears at the end,literally. And to think that this is what people went through back in the day during the war. A brilliant movie no a masterpiece....11/10

This was such an interesting story that you forget that it's animated. It is sad and makes you think of how ugly war is and its impact on everyday civilians who are just trying to survive through the aftermath. 10 scale, I give it a 9.
