This was the first anime movie I've ever seen in my life. I'm not favoring it just because of this. The story is so great that it could be true. The events are close to reality and remains intresting. The conclusion ... Well you should see your own. I only had it on a VHS tape and now it's broken.

Wasn't unique. Similar to a lot of movies like come home lassie. Granted lassie is basically the opposite but seeing how plot for this anime wasn't thick lead to many similarities in other shows/movies.

Conclusion was what one would expect but sadly due to light plot/character investment wasn't emotionally invoking. Also, could have ended a tad earlier. What went on shortly after was some comfort but had it ended earlier one could have safely assumed.

I appreciated the somewhat lack luster on violence. Real enough but not to the point of grossing one out.
