(2nd Birthday Celebration) The Glass Rabbit released!
The Glass Rabbit is one of a variety of anime movies that dealt with World War II. A lot of them use the bombing of Hiroshima as a focal point. This movie is different in regard with that in that the focus is the firebombing of Tokyo by the U.S. Army Air Corps using incendiary bombs. In many ways, the death toll and destruction caused by incendiary bombs is just as bad as having the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
War is something we hope we will never experience firsthand.
I would like to thank the folks who have given me background information about this bombing. Their information was invaluable in the translation.
