Synopsis

Kayoko is a young girl in 1940, just starting first grade. She's a bit of a crybaby, which is no secret to those around her. She loves playing with friends and singing cute schoolyard chants, and occasionally having fun with her three older brothers. Her mother is pregnant, and so she looks forward to being a big sister, only partially understanding the responsibility that might bring. Meanwhile, the war effort is growing, and it`s only the natural thing to do to be patriotic and support the country...

Kayoko goes so far as to contribute her favorite dolly, whose materials could help build explosives. Time passes, and as she grows older, Kayoko sees how the war has affected her life and those around her. Nothing can prepare her for 1945, however, and the bleak times that are soon to come. Based on original creator Kayoko Ebina's real life experience during World War 2 on Showa era.

cried my eyes out when i was 7 and i still cried my eyes out a decade later. one of my favorite movies of all time. although i spent most of my time watching it crying, i had to get on the art. the art man. animation, graphics, art, it completely overtakes me especially in more classical anime. it is my ultimate fav. the main character is relatable in a way which makes her more lovable and like her mother said, everybody enjoys spending time with her. the seiyuu were incredible they captured the moments perfectly which is why i always prefer japanese dubbing over read more

Here in America, war movies tend to be a BIT too overdramatic for their own good, from what I've seen. Apparently, to get an emotional rise out of us, they try to show us as much death and destruction as possible so the tears can be yanked out of us...which, for most, fails horribly if done wrong. Not all of them are like this, however, but I'm not one who's really into war movies, and the ones I have seen didn't really interest me, as I felt they were too overdramatic for their own good and completely not subtle. Another thing I notice about war read more
