I cried like I have never cried before watching a movie.
Practically left as orphans in war torn Japan, Seita quickly learns that he has to do everything he can to preserve his life and the life of his young sister.
I think this movie is one of the best anime movies ever made and that I have ever seen.

This movie was done very well, but I would not advise this for younger children. The story depicts a horrific tragedy that occurred in Japan and thus, this movie is better suited... Read morePublished 4 days ago by Y. Brinkman
