Very few things bring me close to tears [Not that I try to act particularly manly or anything, it's just how I am]
However, this film is going on the list of things that made my eyes water.
It's a tale about a woman who meets a wolf man, falls in love and has two children with him. But early on, and while the children are still
l very young, he passes away, leaving Hana to raise the two human/wolf hybrids by herself.
After facing a number of troubles that would be faced by most single mothers, as well as the added difficulty of keeping their identities as wolves a secret from the world, she decides to move to the country, where she can raise them in peace and where the children can choose whether they want to be wolves or humans.
Hana is the perfect example of a good mother, she loves her children more than anything, and that's where the main themes of this anime really shine.
First, the type of love that only a mother has for her children. Watching this reminded me of my childhood, and how important a mothers love is. It showed that even when things seem bad, or if they didn't have any friends, or felt frightened or sad, it didn't matter because as long as they had a mother like Hana, they were the luckiest children in the world.
Second, and similar to the first theme, that the mother would love them and accept them for who they chose to be, human or wolf. This can be likened to parents in real life that support their children whatever choices they make, and love them just the same.
I highly recommend you watch this film, I think the whole family would be able to appreciate this movie.
Side note: I watched it with Japanese audio and English subtitles so I couldn't really comment on the english dub, however from what clips I've seen it seems fair.
