Japan Today has posted an article about two new anime movies that focus on themes related to World War 2. The first is Ashita-Genki, a movie released on July 2nd, focusing on the firebombing of Tokyo. The second is Garasu no Usagi, due to be released on September 9th, which tells the story of a girl who loses her family in the war.
The story underneath is a universal one, powerful and expertly told. Viewers should be prepared for a devastating experience with a lot of challenging concepts that pile on hard and fast as the finale approaches.
