"This DVD contains episodes 8 through 10: "Everyone's Changing,"
"Akemi," and "And Then...."
I don't want to summarize the plot, since that spoils it for some people. I'll just say that if there is still anyone out there who thinks that anime isn't emotionally moving, then they haven't seen "Grave of the Fireflies" or "Saikano."
In my opinion, the climax of these three episodes occurs when a severe earthquake strikes Shuji's home town. There is an unforgettable scene between Shuji and a dying friend, and in the next episode, between Shuji and his friend's father. I don't see how anyone could watch these without being deeply affected."
