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.

It was the whole point of the show. They adapt the book of the brother didn't they? He regret a lot but couldn't do shit, that's why he kill himself in the movie.

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

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.

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.

>>116241256
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.

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.

It was a required decision for the plot to be dramatic. Half heartedly playing devil's advocate is not necessary.

>>116241896
>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.

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.
