Description


In This Corner of the World, one of the most critically acclaimed anime films of recent years, went relatively under the radar. Following the life of the joyful and ditzy Suzu, the film mixes whimsical elements with gut-wrenching realism, taking place in the years leading up to and through WWII, reaching a climax with the bombing of Hiroshima. Our TangleCast team watched it recently and found that even for those who haven’t seen it, there’s much worth discussing, particularly about in what we find our identity.
