Grave of the Fireflies

Grave of the Fireflies ★★★★★

I've become a fan of anime since My Neighbor Totoro and have been gobbling up on Studio Ghibli's wonderful anime collection. But I have never seen an anime like this.

Beautiful, sad story about the shadow side effects of war. The story is so deep and the sadness even deeper.
It's a great piece of art, but be warned, bring tissues if you are going to watch it, cuz there is a 99% of probability that you'll cry, a lot.

I don't think I'll ever want to watch it again, not because it is bad, because it is so good it hurts…literally.

There has been nothing so touching and soul crushing as Grave of the Fireflies that I have come across.
