In This Corner of the World (この世界の片隅に, Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni) is a 2016 Japanese animated wartime drama film produced by MAPPA, co-written and directed by Sunao Katabuchi,[3][4] featuring character designs by Hidenori Matsubara and music by Kotringo.[5] The film is based on the manga of the same name written and illustrated by Fumiyo Kōno.[6][7] It premiered in Japan on November 12, 2016.[8] Animatsu Entertainment licensed the global distribution rights of the film in June 2016.[9][10] Shout! Factory acquired the distribution rights for North America, with a U.S. theatrical release on August 11, 2017, co-released by Funimation Films.[11] An extended version of the film, titled as In This Corner (and Other Corners) of the World (この世界の(さらにいくつもの)片隅に, Kono Sekai no (Sara ni Ikutsumono) Katasumi ni), premiered on December 20, 2019 and surpassed the extended 70mm cut of Final Yamato by five minutes to become the longest animated film to date.

The film is set in the 1930s–1940s in Hiroshima and Kure in Japan, roughly 10 years before and after the atomic bomb, but mainly in 1944–45. In the film, nature and traditional culture in Japan are clearly described and contrasted with the cruel and irredeemable scenes brought by the war. Though it is a fictional account, the official guidebook of the film claims that the episodes and background of the story are based on facts and real incidents of the lost townscape of pre-war Hiroshima, damaged by the atomic bombing in Hiroshima, researched by the production staff.[12]

Plot[edit]

A cheerful woman named Suzu lives in a seaside town called Eba[a] near Hiroshima. In 1943, 18-year-old Suzu, marries Shusaku, whom she had met as a child, and joins his family in Kure City,[b] a large naval port city 15 miles away from Hiroshima City, as a navy civilian. As she adjusts to her new life, the threat of the Pacific War begins to encroach on the townspeople.

As food shortages become commonplace, the government implements food rationing. Warning and evacuation preparations against United States air raids begin. Suzu, as a housewife in a Tonarigumi,[c] takes turns overseeing food distribution, attends training against air raids, and makes women's trousers fit for emergency evacuation by cutting traditional clothing, such as kimonos. The family builds the air-raid shelter in the garden.

Suzu and Shusaku's family house is located on a hillside with a view of the Japanese Naval Fleet in the harbor, including the largest battleships, Yamato and Musashi. Suzu enjoys viewing boats on the sea with her niece, Harumi. One day, the military police accost her and come close to accusing her of espionage. In December 1944, a navy sailor named Tetsu visits Suzu; he was a childhood friend, and has been assigned to the Japanese cruiser Aoba, stationed in Kure. Understanding that it might be Suzu's last chance to see Tetsu alive, Shusaku leaves them alone to talk. The next spring, Shusaku is drafted by the Navy and quartered with troops in Otake City, 40 miles away.

In 1945, the U.S. begins air raids on the Japanese mainland; in Kure, U.S. naval airplanes heavily attack warships and its naval facilities. In addition to the death of her brother Yōichi, Suzu loses her niece and her right hand when a bomb detonates close to them. As she suffers from depression, Suzu debates returning to the safety of her hometown in Hiroshima City in time for the summer festival; when she is unable to see a doctor, she decides to stay an extra week in Kure. That morning, Suzu notices a bizarre light, quake, and a towering cloud in the direction of Hiroshima City. She then learns that a new, devastating bomb has fallen on Hiroshima City, killing countless citizens. For a while, she is unable to get information about her hometown.

A few days later, in a radio address, the Emperor of Japan announces the end of the War by declaring surrender to the Allied Powers. Suzu, having grown accustomed to the single-minded focus of keeping the family alive, is forced to accept the reality of her losses and falls into despair. U.S. occupation forces, no longer the enemy, come to Kure and provide food. Suzu visits her grandmother Ito's family house in Kusatsu,[d] a rural town to the west of Hiroshima and out of the affected area, to see her sister Sumi, the only survivor of Suzu's family. Sumi informs her of the fate of their parents: their mother had left for supplies and is presumed to be one of the 70,000 people who were killed instantly by the initial blast and shock wave while their father died a few months later after falling ill and succumbing to possible radiation poisoning. Sumi herself has fallen seriously ill from the radiation left behind by the fallout. Shusaku returns and meets with Suzu. They come across a little girl, a war orphan struggling to survive, and adopt her. Suzu regains her passion for life slowly, with the courage and affection of her friends and family. As the credits roll, their adopted daughter is shown growing up in the Hojo residence, sewing clothes, aided by Suzu in post-war Japan.

Cast[edit]

Character Japanese English[13]
Suzu Hojo (née Urano) (浦野 すず(北條すず), Urano Suzu (Hojo Suzu)) Rena Nōnen[14] Laura Post
Ava Pickard (young)
Suzu is an innocent, kind-hearted girl from a seaside town called Eba in Hiroshima, who then moves to Kure after marrying Shusaku Hojo. She loves drawing and has a gift for it. She is earnest and hardworking, and she strives to overcome the difficulties of war-torn Japan against all odds.
Shusaku Hojo (北條 周作, Hojo Shūsaku) Yoshimasa Hosoya[14] Todd Haberkorn
Suzu's husband, an earnest and quiet man. He remembers meeting Suzu in December 1933, in the commercial area of Hiroshima, in a fantastic experience. He works as a judicial civilian officer at the military court in Kure. He gets drafted into the navy as a judicial soldier in 1945. Even after the end of the war, as he has to be in charge of the final legal works regarding Navy demolition in Otake City, he leaves Kure for months. When he returns from final naval services and back from Otake, he finds Suzu in the deserted area of Hiroshima. They talk about his new job and where they will live. He loves Suzu dearly and respects her artistic talent.
Hojo San (北條 サン, Hojo San) Mayumi Shintani[14] Barbara Goodson
Suzu's mother-in-law and Shusaku's mother. She has a gentle character, with a kind-hearted and compassionate nature. She is kind to Suzu, which is not the general character of mothers-in-law towards their son's wives in cultures where marriages are arranged. Often the mother-in-law and the rest of the family treated the son's wife as a servant. Suzu's mother-in-law, while in need of the extra help due to her disability, treats Suzu well and with equal respect.
Entaro Hojo (北條 円太郎, Hojo Entarō) Shigeru Ushiyama[14] Kirk Thornton
Suzu's father-in-law and Shusaku's father. He works as an engineer (Aircraft engine) for Hiro Naval Arsenal. He is a calm and composed man with a serious disposition and rarely loses his temper. Missing after the air raids attack Hiro Naval Arsenal, however later he is found in Kure Naval hospital, safe but injured.
Keiko Kuromura (黒村 径子, Kuromura Keiko) Minori Omi[14] Kira Buckland
Keiko is Suzu's sister-in-law, Shusaku's older sister, Harumi's mother, and a widow. In her youth, Keiko was a fashionable lady ("Modern girl") in 1920s Japan. She marries the son of a watchmaker in Kure. When the family shop closes during the war, she is forced to give up her son (Hisao) to her late husband's parents in Shimonoseki. She acts coldly towards Suzu in the beginning. It is implied that Keiko's situation within the family of her husband after his death was that of a servant. It would not have been unusual or considered "wrong" at the time for her in-laws to have taken her son over from his mother, pushing her into the background. The pain of such treatment and her virtual separation from her own son drove her to leave her husband's family (and actual separation from her son), which was shocking to Keiko's parents, though they welcomed her back into their home without reservation. She takes her anger out on Suzu at first, treating her the way Keiko's in-laws treated Keiko, but eventually accepts Suzu as a member of the family. Later, Keiko blames Suzu for the death of her daughter. As she comes to terms with the death of her daughter compounded by the virtual loss of her son, she comes to recognize and respect her sister-in-law in her own right (as a member of the family) and not just for her contributions to the daily needs of the family (as a daughter-in-law-cum-servant).
Harumi Kuromura (黒村 晴美, Kuromura Harumi) Natsuki Inaba[14] Kenna Pickard
Suzu's niece and Keiko's daughter. Harumi is a little girl aged around 6. She gets along with Suzu. She is fond of seeing warships in the sea, as her brother, Hisao, who lives in Shimonoseki, told her about the ships when living together. While walking with Suzu, she is killed in a time-delayed explosion of a US bomb near Kure Naval Arsenal.
Juro Urano (浦野 十郎, Urano Jūrō) Tsuyoshi Koyama[14] Michael Sorich
Suzu's father living in a seaside town called Eba in Hiroshima. He initially owns the family business cultivating Nori, but later works at a factory following the end of his business. He dies from radiation exposure several months after entering the center of Hiroshima city to look for his missing wife immediately after the atomic bombing.
Kiseno Urano (浦野 キセノ, Urano Kiseno) Masumi Tsuda[14] Melodee Spevack
Suzu's mother. She goes shopping to the center of Hiroshima city in preparation for the summer festival early morning on 6 August 1945 and goes missing after the atomic bomb falls on the central area of Hiroshima city.
Yoichi Urano (浦野 要一, Urano Yōichi) Tony Azzolino
Suzu's older brother. From childhood, he is selfish, ill-behaved, and often cruel. His sisters are afraid of him and he has a reputation for bullying in the town. He is drafted into the army and sent to fight in the southern Pacific Ocean. In 1944, he is reportedly killed in action. Only a single stone is sent home in place of his remains, leaving the family nothing to bury in the family grave. It is clear that his sisters while mourning his passing, will not actually miss him.
Sumi Urano (浦野 すみ, Urano Sumi) Megumi Han[14] Christine Marie Cabanos
Suzu's younger sister. After Suzu's wedding, Sumi is employed as a factory worker by the Imperial Japanese Army under the National Mobilization Law of Japan. She is considered a beauty and is the subject of affection of one handsome Japanese Army officer. She survives the atomic bombing and manages to flee to her grandmother's house in Kusatsu, but falls ill from radiation exposure because she entered into the central area of Hiroshima immediately after the atomic bombing.
Ito Morita (森田イト, Morita Ito) Hisako Kyouda[14]
Suzu's grandmother who cherishes Suzu. As a child, Suzu would cross the tidelands to visit her grandmother's house in Kusatsu, and had an enjoyable time during the summer holidays. After Suzu grows up, Ito, as a skilled and aged housewife, earnestly teaches Suzu how to sew clothes. Ito's family has a small business in Kusatsu of Nori (edible sea weed) cultivation, which Suzu also works with them. As Kusatsu is well out of the danger zone of the atomic bombing, the grandmother's family home becomes a refuge for Sumi.
Tetsu Mizuhara (水原 哲, Mizuhara Tetsu) Daisuke Ono[14] Michael Chapman
Suzu's childhood friend. In his childhood, Suzu drew a picture of "Sea Waves and White Rabbits" for him, when he was very depressed by facing the death of his brother (a student at Imperial Japanese Naval Academy but he died on board a ferry sunk by the high waves). As time passes by, Tetsu grew to love Suzu. During the war, he serves aboard the Japanese cruiser Aoba as a sailor. When he gets on-shore leave from the cruise, he drops into the Hojo residence and asks for a one night stay. The cruiser is severely damaged in a U.S. air raid and settles on the shallow bottom of the harbor of Kure, but Tetsu survives. After the war, one day, he is alone standing on a quay to see the half-sunk Aoba, not noticing Suzu passing by.
Rin Shiraki (白木リン, Shiraki Rin) Nanase Iwai[14] Karen Strassman
A pretty courtesan working in Kure with whom Suzu talks to after getting lost in the city. Her story was told in an artistic story board at the very end of the movie: from a very poor child given away to work at a wealthy household, until her adulthood working in the red light district of Kure. The storyboard shows that she is the 'Zashiki Warashi' at the beginning of the movie who benefited from young Suzu's kindness by receiving pieces of watermelon and Suzu's Kimono dress. In the storyboard, she is given something (a note with her name and address so she can copy it as she is illiterate) by someone. According to the manga, that someone was Shūsaku. It is hinted that Suzu may have realized who Rin was after their first encounter as adults. She was lost after the heavy air raid. The movie downplays her role as she is more prominent in the manga. The extended version of the movie shows more of her role as.

Development[edit]

The characters wore monpe [ja] (women's trousers, pictured in 1937) in the winter of 1943 because it was very cold and tabi socks were not available.[15]

The project was announced in August 2012 and began crowdfunding in March 2015 to raise funds.[16] The crowdfunding was a success, with a Japanese record of 3,374 contributors and the ¥39 million raised[17] exceeding the ¥20 million goal.[18] Another crowdfunding, to send Katabuchi overseas for promotion, was started on November 22, 2016 and reached the goal of ¥10 million within eleven hours.[19]

Director Sunao Katabuchi tried to add accurate details to the backgrounds of the film, such as one shot which took over 20 revisions to get right, using aerial photographs to estimate the size of a shop and interviewing over 10 elderly residents.[15]

On July 25, 2018, the official Twitter account for the film announced that the film would receive an extended version, containing an additional 30 minutes of footage. The extended version is titled In This Corner (and Other Corners) of the World (この世界の(さらにいくつもの)片隅に, Kono Sekai no (Sara ni Ikutsumono) Katsumi ni). It was originally scheduled to be released theatrically in Japan in December 2018, but it was delayed to December 20, 2019.[20][21][22] The extended version emphasizes the relationship between Rin, Shusaku and Suzu.

Notes
  1. ^ Eba was a small fishing town, located in a delta area in the south of Hiroshima City. It was known for cultivation of nori (edible seaweed) and oysters. But in 1943, the fishing business almost ended because a military factory was founded on newly reclaimed land to the south of Eba. In 1945, Eba was affected by the atomic bombing and many people were killed or injured. Not all areas were burnt down and there were survivors, as it was around 3km from the center of the bombing. After the war, the factory, a civil industry factory of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, continues to manufacture machinery and transportation equipment. The town name, Eba, remains now in Naka-ku, Hiroshima.
  2. ^ Kure, a large port city, located within an hour by train from Hiroshima. The port faces the Seto Inland Sea and was widely known as the largest military base of Imperial Japanese Navy. After the War, Kure had been also known for the civil shipbuilding factory of IHI Corporation.
  3. ^ Tonarigumi a neighborhood association offering mutual assistance that was voluntarily organized in Japanese history. This system was mandated all over Japan by the Japanese government in 1940 in order to control society more under the war regime.
  4. ^ Kusatsu was a small fishing town, located to the west of Hiroshima. As it was outside of the blast effects at Hiroshima City, Kusatsu and its residents were not affected by the atomic bombing. Some time after the war, Kusatsu (along with several other nearby towns) was incorporated into what is now Nishi-ku, Hiroshima. Just so it's clear, both Kusatsu, Gunma and Kusatsu, Shiga are not the aforementioned Kusatsu near Hiroshima.
