Wow, frontage again,Thanks Tom!
Alright, this movie will make some people cry. Let's face it. The world is not perfect. Tragedies happening everyday; however, not every tragedies crush our hearts. After we suffered pains, we go on. This story took place in Wuhan, 1938. Partially based on a real story.

----For those who believed there is too much advertising in this movie, I apologize and will keep them at a minimum in the future.


sad indeed

This actually took my breath and smile away, very deep animation, and the music was very well chosen. Had to blink four more times to get rid of upcoming tears. Well done!!

Really touching story

The animation style is pretty simple, but mainly ok. However the main attraction is the long realistic story that is not so typical in Newgrounds. No action, no violence, no aliens - just boy and his mother. Emotional story: 10 points. Reminden me of the animation movie "The Grave of the Fireflies"

it was fairly good but i have one problem...

he was smilin all the time other than that it was pritty good.

So so

I agree with those who said this was too slow. It's as if through half the movie you were begging the audience to cry. It's tragic. I get it. But get to the point already.

Beyond that the animation and graphics were decent. Not great but appropriate enough to the comic book style presentation. The music was too "used." And this desperately needed scene selection & scene skip options, which is why the interactivity rating is so low.

Beyond that it's more good than bad and it's rare to see flashes like this, which I appreciate, even if I would have done it differently.
