Synopsis

Set during World War Two, Alma is a shepherd dog who is raised by a student named Taichi. As food is being rationed and people are struggling for their sole survival during those harsh times, Taichi realises that he can't take care of Alma any longer due to food shortage so he decides to make Alma take part in a War Dog Test. Thinking that leastwise Alma will be duly fed and would come back after six months when the test has finished. To his great surprise Alma comes back already after 5 months with the news that the dog passed the test and will be immediately dispatched to Manchuria to work there as a War Dog.

Well, I'd like to watch it, but surely I'll be crying like crazy so I just can't bring myself to watch it.

Ah, the strong bonds that can form between humans and animals is amazing.

It was a nicely told film, and somehow I couldn't stop shedding tears. It showed that war is not solely a traumatic experience for humans, but also for the animals. War horses, war dogs, and so on. The suffering they had/ve to go through is surely excruciating.
