The Grave of the Fireflies - Anime Review

Bethany Mason, Staff Writer

The Grave of the Fireflies is an animated movie by Studio Gilbhi. The story takes place in Japan during WWII. It is a sad story of a young boy’s life… and his death. He embarks on a tragic adventure that depicts real-life stories from Japan. He has to endure the horrors of death while trying to protect his little sister from harm. Air raids and bombings surround them as they scrounge for food and a small piece of hope. The movie was amazing, although there are some devastating parts. It would be good for those who want to watch a sad story.
