Synopsis

Black rain, which contained plenty of radioactivity, poured into Hiroshima just after the bombing. The effects of the death ash extend to the second and third generations and still cast the shadow of death behind the living witnesses.

From Nakazawa Keiji, the creator of Hadashi no Gen (Barefoot Gen) and Kuro ga Ita Natsu (Summer with Kuro). Kuroi Ame ni Utarete (Beaten by the Black Rain) follows first and second generation survivors of the Hiroshima bombing. It's easily Nakazawa Keiji's most resentful film.

The characters in this movie have a very low opinion of Americans, and the director doesn't project a flattering depiction of Americans. The characters have no outlet for all of the negative emotions they experience, so they try to get revenge on oblivious tourists by saying and doing reprehensible things. They're acutely aware of how irrational and unfair they're being; they ...

So there's a good deal of anti war movies out there. On one hand, you have the legendary Nausicaa, or Barefoot Gen. On the other you get shit like this.

Overview:

Beaten by the Black Rain isn't a well known anime, but it should be. This very well might be the most disappointing anime sequel I've ever seen. One of my favorite anime films of all time is a 1983 anti-War film called Barefoot Gen. I think it's vastly superior to Grave of the Fireflies and I will readily defend it as an unfairly overlooked classic. Black Rain is the sequel to Gen made by the same writer/director just 1 year later. This anime is just fucking baffling! It takes EVERYTHING that Gen did right and does it wrong! WHY Mr. Nakazawa?! Why would you do ...
