    This review is taken straight out of my Tumblr review post:
     
    "Okay, here goes. Grave of the Fireflies, directed by Isao Takahata and based on a semi auto-biography of the same name. Honestly, I’m going to have a hard time with this one. Let’s just get to it. 
    The film opens with the main character Seita dying of starvation and his spirit later meeting that of his younger sister Setsuko. *Deep breaths* Yeah, no point saying spoilers, the beginning of the film practically tells you that both main characters die. That’s already a positive start. 
    It then goes to a flashback, to the city of Kobe, Japan in early 1945. The siblings and their mother prepare to evacuate as the incoming US bombers bomb the city. They are caught off guard but manage to avoid injury. The same cannot be said for their mother however, and words cannot describe how upsetting the scene where they find her is, all I’ll say is it gets pretty graphic. Their mother dies shortly after the bombing and having nowhere else to go, Seita and Setsuko decide to go to their Aunt. 
    Things start out okay at first, but she becomes increasingly hostile towards Seita and Setsuko as it gets harder for her to feed so many people. Eventually Seita decides to leave his Aunt to fend for himself. He takes Setsuko to an abandoned bomb shelter where they stay. Initially things seem fine there too, but Seita eventually begins to run out of rations and becomes increasingly desperate to feed himself and his starving sister. And well, I think you all know where I’m going with this so I’ll stop here. 
    Out of all of Studio Ghibli’s films, this is easily their most realistic and  most depressing film. When I first watched this film, I remember crying by eyes out throughout the majority of the film (yeah wimpy I know, but I’m not ashamed). I also remember after I finished watching the film just going to take a shower just to cry for another 20 odd minutes (no further comment). So yeah, it was a very hard film to watch the first time. 
    And yet, despite sounding very harsh towards the film, I will say this. The film is a masterpiece. While some may misinterpret this as an pro-Japan anti-war film, I think firstly, please don’t. And secondly, it’s more a tragic tale about a honour-bound boy who sadly refuses to swallow his pride, which ultimately leads him and his little sister to pay the ultimate price. Seita is not by any means a bad person though, everything he does is done to ensure both his and Setsuko’s survival, it’s just that his choices were bad ones. 
    I’ve always felt that Takahata’s films were always meant for more mature audiences, something we’ll see in later films this month. And he seems to really know how to write people, I know that’s odd to say but it really helps films like this one. Overall, I can’t say whether I’d recommend this due to how emotionally powerful it is. But if you still find yourself enjoying it the first time despite this, then watch it again in the future. I promise you, it’ll be better after the second viewing."

    I would like to take this opportunity to express my sadness over the passing of Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata. 
    I'm sure I'm not the only Studio Ghibli fan here, but yeah, this is a pretty sad day (I know it was yesterday, but I didn't find out until this morning). 
    For those who don't know Studio Ghibli, they're an a Japanese animation studio behind some of the most famous anime films in the world. Such as Ponyo, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro or Spirited Away. 
    Isao Takahata's film were less fantasy orientated and more based on Japanese culture. I always felt like I was learning more about Japan watching his film. Perhaps the two that everyone remembers from him are The Tale of Princess Kaguya, a story about the old Japanese folktale of a tiny princess found inside a bamboo plant. And of course, Grave of the Fireflies, the heartbreaking story about two orphaned children trying to survive the last few months of World War II. 
    His films had a mostly very mature feel to them, which made it great to contrast the films done by Hayao Miyazaki.
    In honour of his passing I will be posting my reviews of his films that I've done on Tumblr and I'll be reblogging them on there. As well as finally giving my thoughts on Princess Kaguya which I've actually yet to go over. 
    Rest in Peace Isao Takahata
