>that black line up from where her legs meet
I see what you did there, Takahata.
Good taste my fine African American brethren.
Apparently they put the 27 year old scenes in as a narrative to merge the otherwise unconnected scenes of her as a 10 year old from the source material. He thought it was too hard to make a movie out of unconnected shirts about family life.
Then he made My Neighbors the Yamadas 8 years later which was exactly that. I liked Taeko better than the Yamada family though.
I enjoyed the child bits a lot more, but I think focusing entirely on that would make the nostalgia vibe the film has disappear, which is a huge factor of what makes Only Yesterday great.
Not to mention they apparently had to stay home to put ice on it because he hit her so hard. Then he wouldn't let her act in the university play because he doesn't like showpeople. Literally Hitler.
Because cowardly japanese have caved in to feminists attacks on lolis.
You can imagine, they didn't attack shotacon, so that can stay. And hence here we are, shota dicks here and there, but even a subtle cameltoe is no-no for lolis.
Toriyama must have had a hell of a time while drawing the first volumes of DB then.
