Great, but you can only watch it once

This anime is great, but can only be endured once.

" Date: 4/5/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: I haven't seen this movie in over 10 years since I was a teenager. Barefoot Gen is one of those movies that you really need to be in the right mood to watch. After watching this movie again, I still love this movie. The story and characters in this movie are wonderful because they have great personalities and you really care about them in the movie. You really find yourself attached to the characters that you really want to cry when you see them"
