Anyways, I think of all the shounen and shoujo cliches with cliche emo pasts and yes, I think they are over doing it a bit. But hey, they're for little kids, maybe thats the reason.

Something that is very realistic and "taking it a bit too far..." Grave of the Fireflies. Trust me, you will cry your guts out when you watch this movie. I know I did. T.T It takes place during World War II in Japan. We get to see how the protagonist dies. Not a spoiler by the way, you know he dies at the first few minutes of the series. It's horrible, they way they suffered, their what seems like a heartless aunt. But seriously, the aunt is very realistic. In a time where there is a war taking place, of course you prioritize your own family's survival over lets say in their situation, their sister's children. Everything sad in this movie, how much the two siblings suffered...it all seems too sad to be true but it is VERY VERY realistic and I'm guessing quite a bit of people actually experienced something like Grave of the Fireflies during that time. Oh, and the original story was actually written by someone that wrote the story as an apology for his sister.
