Grave of the Fireflies (1988)


Our first animated movie!

In this week's episode the TML duo discuss the Studio Ghibli film, Grave of the Fireflies.  For those of you that love Studio Ghibli, this episode might be a fun divertion as Izzi and David discuss Isao Takahata's influence and involvement with the Anime studio.

This movie is unique being a animation movie and a war movie. David debates on what makes a good war movie and how this movie, while not being an anti-war film, commits to that theme.
