Suzu Urano is a pure and kindhearted girl who loves to draw. She can also be quite the airhead, owing to her ceaseless daydreaming, much to the annoyance but also the joy of those close to her. Growing up in the outskirts of Hiroshima City, Japan, she led an ordinary but happy life with her family. However, after some time, Suzu has to suddenly leave her beloved home to move into the neighboring town of Kure, due to her marriage to Shuusaku Houjou, a man she barely knows. Put to work in her husband's household, the homesick girl struggles to adjust to the unfamiliar environment, living with a family who treats her coldly. She cannot help but question: can this ever truly become her new home? Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni depicts the years from 1933 to the end of World War II, when peaceful everyday life gradually gives way to harsh and unforgiving conditions, as the war eventually reaches Japan's shores and Suzu's own backyard. She will have to prevail against the inevitable suffering and loss that accompanies war, all the while supporting herself and those she comes to love.

Beautifully crafted and largely impacting, this movie was a unique, amazing experience. Watch it in theaters if you can.


Focusing exclusively on Japanese civilians results in a fresh, gorgeously animated take on WW2. This one packs quite an emotional punch.


Hands down one of the most beautiful and heart-wrenchingly moving stories I’ve seen. The animation and soundtrack are also superb.


A stark look at the life of woman trying to make the best of things during hard times. One of the best World War II movies I’ve seen.


As others have said, very beautifully done. Very good insight on what it was like from the perspective of civilians during ww2 in Japan.


A very realistic film, and wonderfully animated. This is a sad but beautiful story. Characters are relatable and extremely human. Awesome.


A slice of life like no other. Has a melancholic tone and is quite introspective. At times relaxes while at others it tugs on your emotions.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
