YesAsia Editorial Description

Based on Kono Fumiyo's manga about the life of a tenacious woman from Hiroshima during WWII, the acclaimed animated wartime drama In This Corner of the World won numerous accolades in Japan, including Animation of the Year at the 40th Japan Academy Prize, Best Director at the 59th Blue Ribbon Awards, and Best Director and Best Film at the 90th Kinema Junpo Awards. Directed by Katabuchi Sunao (Mai Mai Miracle), the moving film gently depicts a young woman's growth and strength through her coming of age amid the dark days of war.

Raised in the town of Eba in Hiroshima, Suzu is a kind and spirited girl who loves to draw and dream. In 1944, 18-year-old Suzu receives a proposal from Shusaku, a boy she met in passing as a child, and she marries to the nearby port city of Kure. While Shusaku works as a clerk at the navy base, Suzu grows into her role as a housewife by taking on domestic chores with sunny vigor. However, war creeps increasingly into their quiet civilian lives – first as food rations, then as air raids, and then unbearable tragedies.

Product Information

The award-winning story follows a young girl named Suzu Urano, who in 1944 moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima where she marries Shūsaku Hōjō -a young clerk who works at the local naval base. Living with his family, Suzu becomes essential to the running of the household and creatively prepares meals during the tough wartime conditions while also carrying out daily housework. In 1945, intense bombings by the US military finally reach Kure with devastating effect to the townsfolk and their way of life. Suzu’s life is changed irrevocably, but through perseverance and courage, she manages to continue to live life to the fullest. This beautiful yet tragic tale shows that even in the face of adversity and loss, people can come together and rebuild their lives.
