So, I just finished watching Hadashi No Gen, and I am lost for words. Never has an anime movie, or a regular one for that matter, left such an impression on me. For those who don't know it --> Barefoot Gen | Anime-Planet <--

It's a very dramatic story about the aftermath of the hiroshima atomic bombing and a boy that survives with his mother amongst the destruction, rubble, radiation and tens of thousands of bodies. A real depressing movie, and scary too, knowing that this could (and most likely will) happen again sometime, somewhere..

Share your thoughts on it, I think it deserves more attention. What scenes got to you? Needless to say, use the spoiler tags! ;)

It was better than Grave of the Fireflies that's for sure but Gen's voice actor is quite frankly the worst I have ever heard. He killed the film for me. Great on a first watch but I don't think I'd do it again for a few years. I cried during the bombing scene!

I've just watched part II also. Definately not dissapointing!

Gen's voice isn't a problem to me at all. Well, it could use a remastering overall, since it's such an old movie. But that's a slight flaw in this masterpiece! Not even worth mentioning :)
