I heard from many reviews that everyone would start bawling their eyes out after watching this film, so I put it on my Netflix queue. My sister watched it first and cried... alot... My mom (who never watch anime, ever, at all) watched it next and she cried a bit.

I felt sad at the end when Setsuko died, but no tears. I got the "eye squinting" sad feeling. After telling that to my family members, they said that I was cold and emotionless >.>

So, I just started this thread to see how you guys felt after watching the movie. I added a poll too.

Well, I didn't exactly 'cry,' but there was definitely a sense of utter depression. I couldn't call it out as 'morbid' for presenting such a tragic ending, as it was very realistically done, and the actions of Seita were not ridiculous or nonsensical enough to be exaggerating, which is often what 'morbid' and 'emo' are. Depressing is realistic.

It's only after we've lost everything that we are free to do anything.
It's only after we step outside of our social norms do we see the truth about our lives.

Voted for mildly depressed. The results of the MC's actions notwithstanding I think the consequences of war was portrayed well, I "enjoyed" that aspect, it was depressing, what I was looking for. Some shows made me bawl my eyes out, but this didn't even got me close to blurry vision.

I did not cry but I had a pretty awful feeling. I felt even worse after watching this than most anime I've cried during, which is odd.

I think the reason for this being there was no cheap cry moment in this movie. It was all just presented, as if objectively.. It's hard to describe.

If you really want to cry then watch the live action movie they made based on this. It portrays the powerful scenes better and really captures the family stress/desperation better than the animated original in my opinion. It might be difficult to track down, but I think it's worth it.

It might just be that I watched the live action version first, but the animated one felt tame by comparison.

I cried.. The most I'd ever in a movie frankly. It wasn't 'sad', just depressing. I was dead for about a week xD.

Yes, you are very cold-hearted.

Same here, I thought it would leave an lasting sensation like Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku, but it didn´t. At much, I was slightly shocked and upset at certain scenes, but that´s all...¯\_(¯ _¯ )_/¯

The hardest war I've fought is the one against those tears while watching this anime...because my brother was in the room, I didn't want to cry with him around. I cried afterwards. Took me some time to recover from it.

"...our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” - Joseph Conrad ('Youth')

When I watched this movie, I felt so bad for those kids. They lost their mother in a tragic way, had to live with a heartless aunt (I believe it was their aunt, if I remember correctly), then lived in a cave by themselves. But when it came to Setsuko's death, I wasn't crying my eyes out, but I had a tight feeling in my chest (mostly because I was trying to hold back my tears) and I shed some tears. So I think it was a really good movie.

I felt sad when the movie ended but I didn't cry...
Then I started the movie again just to see if the very first scenes would have a different impact on me, and yeah, I shed a tear after seeing the guy throwing the candy box and seeing Setsuko's bones...

I ddin't. Wasn't even sad, because all the misery was caused by his stupid pride. All I felt was anger.

I was unaffected, I was watching around The class seeing people shedding numerous years and wondering if I was supposed to cry too. We were doing depressing movies in class and I saw the documentary of the Hiroshima bombing which was the only thing that made me cry. Barefoot gen and grave of the fireflies weren't really sad to me.

Thanks to Iri for the awesome Signature!! ^^

Mildly depressed. I never cried while watching anything in my entire life.
