They describe it

1940s Hiroshima. Suzu, a young bride, leaves her home to join her new husband, a member of the Japanese navy, at a military base in the port city of Kure. Confronted with the challenges of a new life, Suzu must also come to grips with a world at war and her beautiful home collapsing around her. Unwilling to give up hope, Suzu holds on to happiness to persevere through the trials of war.

“We’re really honored to be publishing In This Corner of the World in English,” says Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “The animated film it inspired is such a touching piece, and the powerful message about a young woman’s strength in wartime is universal.”
