Is it Grave of the Fireflies?

When i was growing up, I remember I saw a cartoon that scared the bajesus out of me. It was a Hiroshima and Nagasaki cartoon and it showed people being sick, dying, etc.

Based on trailers, I believe it was Grave of the Fireflies.

My question is there another film this could be?

Definitely NOT Grave of the Fireflies. That had nothing to do with Hiroshima or Nagasaki, but rather was focused on civilian victims of Allied firebombing.

Sounds like Gen. It just was about Hiroshima & the after-effects.

From the perspective of a child, I think it is Grave of the Fireflies - I remember thinking it was about Hiroshima when I saw this movie when I was a kid.

Could be either, Barefoot Gen is certainly a lot more gruesome.

Based on what you said, it sounds a lot like Barefoot Gen.
