Grave of the Fireflies DVD (Hyb) Remastered Edition
BRUCE W. BODDY - Mar 3 2012
In reference to this Film, one could say that SENTAI FILMWORKS is to Studio Ghibli, what Touch Tone was to Disney. ( they did the over G rated movies for Disney )
It has all of the ear marks of a Ghibli Film, but is must defiantly not for children. Which would explain why Disney didn’t get the US Dub and Distribution rights.
This film is just one of the many little Gems that have made me into the Anime lover I am today. There are so many stories that need to be told, and many can only be done in the Anime Art Form format.
You know the end in the beginning, and still I was drawn in, captivated and moved And the ending still hit me hard.
"Based on the re-tellings of survivor Nosaka Akiyuki"

A heartbreaking yet eye opening movie
I saw this movie once when I was younger and it broke my heart. You can read all about war in books or newspapers but when you see what people actually go through it changes your outlook on everything. Yes, I know the "people" are just anime characters but they capture the lives of the real children and families that suffered during WW2. The movie is sad but heartwarming once the children are reunited at the end. I'm glad I was able to get this so cheap on RightStuf. My anime movie collection would not be complete without this masterpiece.
