Well, firstly I just wanna say that's anime in english I seek long time. But no results. I found in finnish language and decided to watching, because I know finnish is not bad.

Anime is gorgeous. Beautiful and sad story about the war, about the hope, about the mother's love. I used to cry when I saw all power of woman's feelings.

Though the theme is serious, however, to watch this story will be interesting both for children and teenagers and adults.
