In This Corner Of The World

The story is about a young Japanese woman's life during World War II.

Liked how the protagonist endured the hardships of food rationing and countless number of bomb shelter visits! She was mad only when she learnt that Japan had surrendered to the enemy. I also liked her creative paintings of the sea, the sky and the experiences that she encountered!

Liked the nice soundtrack, the interesting incidents during the body switches and the complex plot that kept me in suspense on what would happen next! The girl looked beautiful with the ribbon tied to her hair!
