* BrotherSisterIncest: In the original short story, Seita is deprived of all other female company, and Setsuko has to grow up really quickly because of the circumstances, so their relationship develops undertones of this. Thankfully, the film left out this theme. There is, however, a subtle hint in the scene in which he rolls towards her when she sleeping and seems to try to kiss her, which causes her to push him away.

The film is based on the short story of the same name written by Akiyuki Nosaka, who based much of the plot on his own childhood in Japan during and after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The film begins with Seita dying and reuniting with his little sister Setsuko as a ghost and [[HowWeGotHere the two have another look at the last few months of their life]], starting with the loss of their home and their mother in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombing_of_Kobe_in_World_War_II 1945 bombing of Kobe]] until Setsukoís death.

Added DiffLines:

* AngstWhatAngst: [[invoked]] It is rather incredible how much time Seita spends with a smile on his face. However, itís mainly for Setsukoís sake and itís quite [[StepfordSmiler fake]]. The best example is when he starts doing gymnastics on a bar to try to distract Setsuko from the fact their mother just died. [[TearJerker It doesnít work.]]
