Grave of the Fireflies didn't make you cry?

I would love to see "The Whale Hunt" to see just what attitude it has in light of all the globle controversy about Japan's actual whaling policy.

Correct. Because I am unmoved by children dying horribly.

Oh god, did it. That sequence near the end when they spoiler[give up on their crusade and decide to all use their powers to make their Tokyo suburb back into the countryside one last time] reduces me to a complete mess every single time.

Heck, My Neighbors the Yamadas made me cry. (Namely the sequence that begins with the wedding cake bobsled, throughout the ensuing narration and lyrical fantasy visuals.)

What can I say? I'm a complete sucker for nostalgia and wistfulness.

No need to say it, I gots issues.

Uh, care to explain that? I'm pretty sure children dying horribly is sad.

I'm being sarcastic. But although sad, it didn't make me cry.

Psychoanalysis is ongoing.

In a strange way it did make me cry, spoiler[the loss of a way of life, fighting someone (mankind) that doesn't care] did make me cry a bit...
