So, think you’re in a fairly good mood? Or perhaps you think your life is difficult and fraught with suffering? Well, I have the answer for you… start watching the live-action version of the Grave of the Fireflies. This version of the well-known anime original was made on the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II and illustrates the hardships of civilians on Japan during the final stages of World War II. I only made it about 45 minutes into the 2.5 hours and now feel utterly wretched. I don’t think I can finish it without descending into a morass of guilt and depression. I’m going to que up Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl (Samehada otoko to momojiri onna) which I know nothing about but can’t possibly be this emotionally wrenching.
