Movies Where the Young Main Character is Going to Die — 2 Comments

  1. Didn’t know this was a (seemingly) popular genre in Japan. I imagine it’s not as ham-fisted as some English language films about someone’s last days on Earth (though I’ve really only seen Hallmark/made for TV movies with this kind of plot, far from Oscar worthy).

    I just don’t know if I’m ready to make myself sad in Japanese yet! Maybe someday I’ll dip my toes into this kind of thing.

    • Yeah, you also see it a lot in J-dramas as well. I feel like this a genre that Japan does well in.

      Give it a try though!
