      author eats people

      Cough cough! Before introducing this work, I would like to briefly describe the concept of authorship. The so-called author theory, simply put, is a theory that pays more attention to the author than the work. In this theoretical framework, the work has no independent status, and all are subordinate to the author. The status of a work is entirely assigned by the author, and the quality of the work is largely determined by whether or not the author's style is preserved. The above is the basic...

      Small thoughts

      A masterpiece of criticism of militaristic warfare! Especially did not expect that the death of the father, sister, brother, and sister turned out to be all the real experiences of the original author. The nuclear explosion gave people a suffocating feeling, death... pain... torture... parting. The whole film just wants to tell you to live. ——The dividing line—— There is a sentence in the original play, "The government does not care about the tragedy of Hiroshima" The military government...

      In the first theater in 1983, Kazuo Oga, the art director, was supervised by Mazaki Mamoru, who later scripted the Phantom War, Maruyama Masao was the setting, and Kawajiri Yoshiaki, Umezu Yasomi and others participated in the original painting; about half an hour after the atomic bomb was dropped The series of animations can be said to be quite frightening, and it can be called the invasion of B-level film elements. The second theater in 1986, not...

      -Yuan: Dad, when will we be full? -Father: When the war is over, it will be fine. - Yuan: When will the war end? - Father: I think, soon, Japan has lost. -Yuan: If Japan loses, why do we keep fighting? -Father: Our current government is sick, they are all a bunch of lunatics and perverts. -Yuan: Many people say that you are "unpatriotic" because of those words just now. - Father: Yes, I am "unpatriotic", but I am proud of it. This war is for plundering and killing, it is not right at all! So...

      The description of the nuclear explosion is both true and terrifying. Alas, as the saying goes, if God does something wrong, you can still escape, but you can do it yourself, and you can't live. It is pitiful and hateful, and only those wandering souls can tell what is right or wrong in...

      For civilians, being strong is the only way out of suffering. Very realistic and deep anti-war...

      "I think Japan is about to lose. Others say I'm 'unpatriotic', but I'm proud of it." "People in the government are a bunch of lunatics and perverts" "Japan has surrendered" "It's long overdue to surrender!" "Why did you die before I came back, Tomoko" (ps: the dubbing could be...

    Movie quotes

    • Kimie Nakaoka: Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka, they've come against all the biggest cities and bombed them into ruins. It's serious, Gen, I won't have you making light of it.

      Daikichi Nakaoka: There's one thing that bothers me. It's like you said, every major city around us has been bombed over and over again. But never Hiroshima.

    • Doctor: Slow down boys, slow down, I'll die of a heart attack before we get there.

      Gen Nakaoka: You should've thought of that before you got so fat.

      Shinji Nakaoka: Our mother's sick, and if you don't make her better, you'll be sorry.

    • Daikichi Nakaoka: This war can't be right. But it's only the cowards like me who dare say it. If there were only a few more like us. You know, sometimes it takes more courage not to fight than to fight, to not want to kill when all around you are calling out for blood. That's real courage in my book. If you boys remember nothing else I teach you, I hope you'll remember that.
