On the 19th of June 1945, 230 American B-29s bomb Fukuoka while two horror-struck Japanese children watch the incendiary devices make the night sky look as if it is "raining fire." Funded in part by the Kyushu Film Center, jealous at the attention lavished on other towns in anime such as Grave of the Fireflies (Kobe) and Barefoot Gen (Hiroshima), RF fatuously claims to be an antiwar film, though it conveniently neglects to mention that the sleepy harbor town of Fukuoka was actually a major military port. Conventional weaponry killed more Japanese during the war than the much-hyped A-Bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki-in addition to Arihara's look-alike follow-up Kayoko's Diary, a similar study of the firebombing of civilian and industrial targets was directed by Tsuneharu Otani as After the Unhealable Wounds: Osaka the Sea of Fire (1991, Kiesaranu Kizu Ato: Hi no Umi Osaka).
