Suzu Urano is a pure and kindhearted girl who loves to draw and keep her head in the clouds. Growing up in the outskirts of Hiroshima with her family, she is more than happy to help with her grandmother's nori business.

However, when she becomes of age, Suzu leaves her beloved home to marry Shuusaku Houjou, a man she barely knows. As she integrates into her new husband's household, the homesick bride struggles to adjust to the unfamiliar environment as the war effort extends far beyond its point of no return. When the war reaches Suzu's own backyard and peace gives way to brutality, how will she support herself and those she comes to love along the way?

Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni paints a colorful yet haunting depiction of everyday life in the years before and after World War II, showcasing the perseverance and fortitude of ordinary Japanese during one of the darkest periods of modern history.

In This Corner of the World is an anime movie you do not come across often nowadays. It blends a slightly ghibli style with a more mature approach yet it is neither dark nor overly idealistic. It's a story that could have easily been live action but in using animation we are invited to live with the main character and her feelings. It's very character driven in that sense and I'm sure we all know someone like the main character honestly. She is very forgetful and has her head in the clouds, which is perhaps what makes her charming. Nevertheless, the story does not shy ...

Mixed Feelings
I went into this excited about watching a historical work, all the character nuances and settings really piqued my interest.

But characters motivations were all over the place, things were explained but never shown or whole characters just sorta disappeared from the movie halfway through never to be heard from again. A particularly heart wrenching decision was the mother who lost her daughter to bombing, only to ...

I watched the animated movie Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni, also known as In this Corner of the World. Here are my thoughts:

The story takes place in the 1940s of WW2-era Japan. It is mainly told through the eyes of civilians.

I personally am not a huge fan of anime from this era (speaking VERY generally), so I might be unfairly biased towards this movie. Furthermore, I usually ...
