Sad in a good way by WConyers March 18, 2004 - 10:17 PM PST

This is a great story about Chise and Shuji trying to get closer to each other during wartime. It's sad but not depressing like "Graveyard of the Fireflies."

The mecha is minimal, and Chise cries almost every episode. Chise is a lot like Chi from "Chobits," sweet and innocent.


The ending of the 13-part series is Evangelion-like.
