Such a great yet simple slice-of-life movie! The character development of the Yamazaki family is the best part. From the daughter's struggles with first love to the simple experiences of boyhood through the son's perspective, Shouwa Monogatari emphasizes the bond between a loving but dysfunctional family. Surprisingly, the father gets decent screen time and proper character development (which is not often in anime movies). I loved watching this movie! Watched this movie when the 2020 Tokyo Olympics had to be postponed to 2021 caused COVID-19 and this movie made me appreciate the Olympic Games more and the hardworking people of Japan.

This is a simple movie. There’s really nothing big going on in this anime. It’s a straight forward movie about the Yamazaki family during the 39th Showa Era or 1964. This was a significant year for Japan because this was the year Japan hosted the summer Olympics. This was a big thing for Japan because this was more than just the Olympics. It was also a way to reintroduce themselves to the world after cutting themselves off during WWII. The setting of the anime isn’t really that important and only subtle 1964 references are thrown here and there. I wish they did add more though ...
