Is this really that disturbing?


I really want to see it i loved grave of the fireflies but from what i have read this is a very disturbing film. More than grave was even so how violent and gory is this? I have a strong stomach but if its to realistic i dont know if i could watch it.

There's a clip on YouTube, just search the title there and it will have a scene of Horishima bombing and people being affected by it.

It's really disturbing, so hold on to something tight otherwise you might get a nightmare.

Probably more disturbing than "Threads", or "The Day After".

DEFINITELY more disturbing than Threads and mucho mucho more disturbing than The Day After. More disturbing than When the Wind Blows, more disturbing than Grave of the Fireflies, I think even more disturbing than The Plague Dogs.

It is extremely disturbing. It's very graphic, but these are animated characters, so it would come down to whether or not you find animated characters dying to be realistic or not; there are some people who will see always see animation as a 'cartoon'.
