If you didn’t watch Grave of the Fireflies until now, then don’t read this. You only have to know that the saddest scene in the history of anime comes from this movie.
If you watched this – you already know what I will be talking about next.
This movie broke my heart. Before I watched it, a friend told me that it’s one of those movies that you either choose to forget you’ve ever seen or it will get you depressed for the rest of your life.
I was not ready for what it was about to come. I was expecting some sadness, of course, but shit. I cried for 3 hours straight after watching it. And I did that twice.
It’s sad from the beginning to the end. Seriously. But the saddest scene is Setsuko’s death for sure. I don’t even want to think about it. You know it’s over when she offers him those stones. That shit, man, broke my heart. It scarred my brain and it destroyed my world. From there on it’s a nightmare of feelings, going down, slowly killing your insides. I hate this.
