    Saw this when I was a teen and didnt really know much about the movie going in aside from being anime. The only anime Ive seen at that point was DB, DBZ, and some Sailor Moon episodes, so I did not expect to see one of the most depressing movies Ive ever seen to date.

    It left me in a real funk for a couple days afterward.

    I watched it for the first time about a few months ago. It's probably one of the most sobering film experiences I've ever had. I even tried explaining how good of a film this was to my parents the day after watching, without spoiling anything, and I could barely finish each sentence without getting emotional.

    The scene that really got to me was near the end, when that record player song plays over all the flashbacks of Setsuko playing, right after her death scene. I audibly cried the rest of the movie. It hit me so hard because I have a younger brother and sister, and I couldn't even imagine the torture of losing either one of them. :csad:
    A film like this also kind of helps to put life into perspective. For the longest time before watching this film, I would always complain about the amount of work I would have to do. Afterwards, I almost never complained. Anytime I start to catch myself complaining, I always think back to this film and say to myself, "It could be a lot, lot worse."

    I consider any film that can bring out any strong positive emotions in me a work of art. This film definitely fits that category for me.

    There's been good adaptations before so while I'm alright with it and it's certainly a powerful story, they'll be hard pressed to do better than the original.
