This is the best animated film on the planet.
>/a/ doesn't even want to discuss Grave of the Fireflies
Wow. I thought /v/ was bad.
>confirming your shit taste
I didn't ask for this.
Here's what this movie was:
>Man, their life sucks. Look at how much it sucks.
>It's getting worse! Look at it! Witness how awful it is!
>LOOK AT IT THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL IS INTENSIFYING, LOOK AT IT LOOK AT IT
it was okay
Shit movie was shit. Whole thing was just the story of an asshole older brother who couldn't man up and take responsibility.
Eh, makes sense why it would engage a bunch of NEETs then
This is one of those shows that you watch once, it tears you up inside, and you never watch it again.
You buy a copy and put it on a shelf in respect.
What a terrible world we live in where Setsuko dies. And it happens every day in some part of the world.
I doubt you even understand what blogposting is.
>I doubt that most of /a/ even watch it since they only watch Hayao's works
Yes, that's how tragedies work.
>Had no way to earn a legitimate living.
>His Aunt basically sold his stuff and then guilted him for eating the food she bought with the money
Are you retarded? Dewey isn't even fucking Ginger.
Rewatching it made the whole thing so much harder
>Something nice happens
>Can't think anything but "They're gonna die lonely and hungry"
>Feel extra sad as a result
I distinctly remember eating a meal of two chicken sandwiches during the opening of that movie the first time I watched it.
I still feel bad.
>that's how tragedies work
I'm no stranger to tragedies, but this one just felt so
tiring? I'm not sure how to describe it. It was just one horrible thing after the other horrible thing, half of which you saw coming half an hour before it actually happened
like literally drinking pond water?. It didn't help that besides the atomic bomb exploding, pretty much everything was the MC's fault.
Sure, the aunt was acting like a faggot, but that didn't justify him running the fuck away to drink pond water.
All and all, could have been completely avoided if MC wasn't pants on head retarded
Who? Look, I understand you aren't from here, but please lurk for at least a little while before you decide to make threads. Use anime/manga-related reaction images. This is the anime/manga board.
>Use anime/manga-related reaction images. This is the anime/manga board.
>Sure, the aunt was acting like a faggot, but that didn't justify him running the fuck away to drink pond water.
She told his fucking sister his that Mommy was dead. She ate their provisions [the pickled plums etc] and then sold their valuables to pay for more food. Little 6 year old girl is crying for her dead mommy? Let's come in and bitch them out! That's the right move! Let's accuse them of being loafers and leeches when they literally have no choices about it!
>All and all, could have been completely avoided if MC wasn't pants on head retarded
Yes, he probably could have tried to stick it out at the Aunt's house but I can't really blame him for wanting out of that situation. Fucking cantankerous cow didn't even try to stop him from leaving. What a "loving" and "supportive" familial bond.
>certain boards demand certain reaction pics
You're hilarious. You're the funniest person I've seen all day. Seriously. You crack me up.
>disgusting shameless normies using grave of fireflies as a tasteful anime.
Why dont you fuck off back to your board cunt.
I know plenty about /a/.
It's the ACTUAL worst board on 4chan. I haven't EVEr seen some autistic weeb attack somebody for using an "offtopic" reaciton pic on any of the other boards. EVER.
>I can't blame him for wanting to leave
Was dying of fucking starvation worth not having to deal with a shills shit?
>selling their valuables
>generally acting like a faggot
Yes, yes, yes, she was acting like a faggot, which I mentioned already.
>can't use any images other than anime or manga on /a/
>Was dying of fucking starvation worth not having to deal with a shills shit?
He didn't die of starvation until he gave up on living after the death of his sister. His sister didn't even starve, she died of malnutrition related complications and maybe eating those dirt riceballs.
>>Yes, yes, yes, she was acting like a faggot, which I mentioned already.
Which is why I don't blame him for leaving. It's not even totally clear why she got so fucking sick. They ate a variety of food and veggies and even had meat in their diet. The instant the Doctor told him she needed nutrition, he went out and bought some with his last money.
I used to go there sometimes, it's REALLY gone down hill. As far as I can tell /a/ has ALWAYS been this bad. I'd say that makes it the worse board.
Of course I don't. It's a shithole and I don't' watch much anime. Every time I DO though, I go find a thread about it on this place and end up closing it in disgust. Feels like 70% of discussion here is just shipping.
I was told this was sad and was instead simply disgusted and angry. It's a selfish excuse for an apology and the effect is amplified by the hordes of people misinterpreting the meaning of the film.
You missed the entire point of my post, even though I misremembered the reason he/his sister died.
Staying in his aunts house would have killed nothing but his pride.
Instead, he up and decided he could do better by himself, and ended up with both him and his sister dead.
I felt nothing when he or his sister died. Anyone with half a brain knew it was going to happen the instant he struck out on his own.
>Staying in his aunts house would have killed nothing but his pride
More than that. They were being treated like second class citizens. Did you even pay attention to the first meal they share together?
>Core family members get big bowls with lots of sauce/meat/veggies
>Seita and Setsuko get half the rice and almost no sauce/veggies/meat
Clearly you've never LIVED in a situation like that. The emotional burden of a living situation like that is enormous.
No I didn't. Not a single one.
You don't even know what shitposting means. seriously.
>/b/ on a regular basis
Das it mane. Keep digging the grave.
>getting less food than others is worse than being dead
This is what you sound like right now.
>You've never LIVED in a situation like that.
don't use caps lock
Oh, I get it. So this film stuck an empathy chord since you've lived through a similar situation.
>Clearly you've never LIVED in a situation like that. The emotional burden of a living situation like that is enormous.
It was a required decision for the plot to be dramatic. Half heartedly playing devil's advocate is not necessary.
>This is what you sound like right now.
It's the active injustice of it. They never did ANYTHING to try and help these kids feel any better. That bitch did nothing but fulfill the BASIC MINIMUM of her familial obligations.
>don't use caps lock
It's only capslock when a whole sentence is caps. All caps for emphasis on specific works is a necessity until moot gets off his ass and enables bold/italics.
>Oh, I get it. So this film stuck an empathy chord since you've lived through a similar situation.
Yes, but that's not the point. They're both CHILDREN. Of course he made a stupid decision, but it was the job of the adults in his life to try and shield him from his own mistakes. That bitch Aunt didn't even wait a week to start resenting them and leaving them to their own devices. Less than one fucking week and she's saying "cook and buy your OWN food " to a pair of fucking orphaned war victims to whom she has a blood relation.
>I feel the need to demonstrate emphasis on certain words
You shouldn't have to or feel the need to do that
Anyway, you keep repeating yourself. And I keep repeating myself.
Yes, aunt and her family was a bitch.
No, the MC should not have left.
Yes, they are children and can't be expected to make rational decisions.
I call that accelerated survival of the fittest
Please improve your vocabulary and grammar so that you don't feel the need to emphasize words like a melodramatic child.
>You shouldn't have to or feel the need to do that
It's a habit I've gained from years of retards with American Public School Educations misreading/misunderstanding simple English. You would be fucking blown away by the simple sentences and ideas I've had idiots misread. I find capslock emphasis reduces this occurrence.
>I find capslock emphasis reduces this occurrence.
Just because you think you are right doesn't mean you are.
Happens on /v/ and /k/ and /vg/ all day. All fucking day.
It's not about being "right". It's about making sure idiots without 2nd grade reading abilities see the keywords and understand my thrust of my post.
Of course not. I went over this.
>I don't browse /a/ often because it's a shithole
>posting on /a/
>thinks he can get high and mighty and superior
You're fucking hilarious. Seriously.
>It's a habit I've gained from years of retards with American Public School Educations misreading/misunderstanding simple English.
Speaking of simple English, I can see adequate grammar and proper sentence construction isn't quite your forte either.
There's a good reason why people aren't understanding your illiterate scrawl. Look at what you just wrote and see if you can figure it out.
This is pretty much what you sound like right now, OP.
I'm not telling /a/ how to act.
You're going to extreme lengths to prove my point though. The result of this thread is proof 150% positive that /a/ is a shithole. ?I bet I could get ten times the discussion quality if I made a shitty thinly veiled "What's the video game equivalent of Grave of the Fireflies" thread on /v/
>mfw your post and the attached image
>Did /a/ suddenly turn shit overnight?
Oh well I didn't notice that.
OP you are a faggot.
To think for a moment there I was about to make anti-GG comparisons. Shame on you for being such an ass. You don't antagonize the people you're trying to start a conversation with.
>a thread about a ghbili movie
Oh no, what a travesty. A thread died.
Do you really think that there's more than a ~dozen people who actually post in those threads?
What I'm saying is I can't prevent those delusional faggots from bumping their containment thread
>But it's not shitty because of the waifu threads.
I didn't mention waifu threads. Al I did was act incredulous at the lack of discussion occurring and then accuse /a/ of being as bad as /v/.
