Synopsis:

In 19th century Belgium, in the Flanders countryside, lived a young boy with an artistic flair named Nello, and his faithful companion Patrash. Though poor in the physical sense, the two friends shared a rich life along with Alois, one of Nello's neighbors, and his grandfather, his last living relative. Though great sorrow and hardship looms closely in the future, one thing is for certain, the devotion and companionship of Nello and Patrash will never fade...

Oseam and Dog of Flanders are both incredibly emotional tragedies that strike at the core of sadness. Both with devoted and down-on-their-luck characters who you will become very attached to and will empathize with. Truly you would like one if you liked the other.

Both main characters are pure hearted and are trying their best to overcome the trials set in front of them. Heartwrenching and dealing with the pain of survival, if you liked one check out the other.

Dog of Flanders and Barefoot Gen, while about very different subjects, have a main character who refuses to give in and let go when hardships arise. If you liked the tragedy and strong will in one, you'd like the other.

If you're in the mood for an anime about a pure hearted main character trying their best to overcome the trials set in front of them, then both of these animes are for you. Heartwrenching and dealing with the struggle to survive, both of these movies are definitely classics in their own right.

Although Dog of Flanders is definitely a tragedy at its core (whereas Marco has a more uplifting feel), both seemed to be on the same page for some reason. Whether it's just the animation style, or something more... a deep sense of family and strength. I'm not sure why, but I think if you liked one, you'd like the other.

Nobody's Boy Remi

Nobody's Boy Remi

Eight-year-old Remi lives in a quiet village with his mother. His father, Jerome Barbarin, lives in Paris and provides the family with money to stay afloat; but soon they receive word that Jerome has been in a terrible accident and cannot support them further. After struggling through a tough winter, Remi and his mother are soon elated to see that their father has returned home - but he is not the man that he used to be. Cold and distant, Jerome soon secretly sells Remi to a traveling entertainer; and thus Remi's hardships begin. Moving from place to place, Remi experiences tragedy on a large scale. Friends come, go, and die; newfound families are torn apart; and otherwise Remi is abused, abandoned, and mistreated. Can Remi ever find his place in the world?

Dog of Flanders and Nobody's Boy Remi are tragedies; people die, bad things happen, and you generally feel flat out crappy for the lead character in either case. Set in a similar time period and having an animation style, fans of one would definitely appreciate the other.
