Brace yourselves. You will shed tears.

If you ever thought anime/manga is for kids or if you have ever made the mistake of putting these in the ''cartoon'' category, you are making a sad error. This particular movie is something that can make a tiger cry. Yes, not a movie with real humans but this. It isn't for nothing that this movie is considered 'second-saddest' in movie-history ever. Take a good watch and you will know what I am saying. War is harsh, kids are cute, brother-sister relationships is awfully beautiful. These three combined and you will get a lethal combination of tears, love and...shock. Go ahead.
