In the final months of World War II, 14-year-old Seita and his sister Setsuko are orphaned when their mother is killed during an air raid in Kobe, Japan. After a falling out with their aunt, they move into an abandoned bomb shelter. With no surviving relatives and their emergency rations depleted, Seita and Setsuko struggle to survive.
Grave of the Fireflies was probably one of the first animes I ever watched and man it was such a powerful film. Definitely one of the best films of all time. Today the world has lost one of the greatest director ever. RIP Isao Takahata.
