On June 12th, 1929, about ten-years before the start of World War II, Annelies Marie Frank was born to parents Otto and Edith Frank in Frankfurt, Germany. Rendered stateless by the Nazis in 1941, and without any means to flee the country, Anne and her family were forced into confinement for two-years in a cramped attic to avoid persecution. While staying there, Anne documented her life in a now famous diary, which has since been adapted into movies, plays, and even an anime.

It was surprising to learn that an anime of Anne Frank’s diary had been made—by Madhouse, no less, one of my favorite studios. read more

For me, as a Jewish Otaku, Anime about Anne Frank- real story about a Jewish girl that wrote a diary while hiding from the Nazis, means a lot. Still, I expected something better, the anime storyline didn't seem to follow her original diary, lots of parts were missing, the art wasn't even close to beautiful but somehow, an Anime movie about Anne Frank still made me cry.
The story doesn't seem to be great at all- big parts of te diary are missing- and somehow, I dont think these parts coul be replaced. No, these Anime is not good enough with these parts missing.

Okay, first off the story! Wow! So much is wrong! And a lot of things are downplayed way too much. Like Anne's and Petter's romance, Anne's friends, Anne's problems with her mother, the friction between the van Daan's and the Franks, also that they all knew each other before coming!
