Great, but you can only watch it once

This anime is great, but can only be endured once. The animation is certainly sub-par and very dated, since this was made in early 80s, but it's the story of survival during and after the effects of the nuclear bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima that makes this a must-see film. The story is based on the experiences of an actual Hiroshima survivor. A warning though, even though its an animated fil... read more

The scene where Kimie, Gen's mother, desperately searches for someone to breastfeed her dying daughter Tomoko is truly heart-wrenching. The sight of her putting a hand on the dead woman's shoulder, causing the corpse to slide down and revealing its massive, jiggling breasts - all while wearing a torn red short-sleeved cotton haketa and a ripped beige skirt, along with her bare feet - is disturbing... read more

A powerful statement against war, Barefoot Gen is a disturbing story about the effect of the atomic bomb on a boy's life and the lives of the Japanese people.

“The scene where Kimie, Gen's mother, desperately searches for someone to breastfeed her dying daughter Tomoko is truly heart-wrenching. The sight of her putting a hand on the dead woman's shoulder, causing the corpse to slide down and revealing its massive, jiggling breasts - all while wearing a torn red short-sleeved cotton haketa and a ripped beige skirt, along with her bare feet - is disturbingly erotic.

The way the dead woman looks, her exposed breasts, the torn clothing, those thick legs...it's a horrifying yet arousing spectacle” read more

I'd rate the original movie 3/10 because it didn't focus on that dead MILF.

" 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"
