    90's cartoon movie where human souls turned into red semi-transparent birds
    Sorry for my not so good english. Well I hope someone can help me. I, like many here , have a vague memory about a cartoon movie I watched when I was about 8 years old. It was 1994 I think or something like that. I don't remember the storyline, I just know that it was a love story, strange and sad, and I have pieces of images stuck in my head, and I will use them as clues in hope someone will remember the movie and help me out. I need to see it again!
    So here is what I remember
    -the souls of the people that died, were turned into some kind of red semi-transparent bird

    -the main girl character dies in the end( killed in a flood) and when her lover comes to look for her he doesn't know that she is dead and she turnes into the red bird thing right under his eyes.

    -there is a scene with a girl( not the main one) standing on a cliff near the ocean and waiting for her lost love, and as the main male character talks to her, she turns to stone, because she was standing there waiting for so long.

    -the flood that killes the girl was actually caused by her lover. A lot of people die and there is a scene with hundreds of souls=>red transparent birds, flying all around, it's very dramatic!

    -something about a big tree where the boy makes a promice that he will try to repair somehow the damage he has done.

    That's all I remember. Sorry for my bad english and if I wasn't clear enough. But I really hope that someone could help me.

    I know it's been awhile since you asked this question, but I do know the name of the movie you're talking about. It's an old anime movie called "Dowa meita senshi Windaria" or just "Windaria."

    It was the absolute saddiest movie I have ever seen. I was always bawling like a baby by the end.

    Here's a link that might help.

    Dôwa meita senshi Windaria (1986)

    (oh, and if you want it on DVD, it was rereleased as "Once Upon a Time" a few years ago)
