The best anime in the long run. I cried so much during the movie and even now, thinking about the movie, it still makes me sad and makes me cry. It's an animation that will touch people's hearts and most deep inner feelings. This animation is different from those of other animations. A must watch for everyone.

I have tried many times to finish watching this anime, but I hardly reach halfway and I have to stop the film. People may say its a mere cartoon, but it strikes a chord and really reflects on the tragedies of war.
