Two Ghibli classics turn 25!
Feeling old?

14 hours ago - 3:00 PM on 04.17.2013



Can you believe Totoro turned 25 yesterday? Two of Studio Ghibli's most famous works, My Neighborhood Totoro, and Grave of the Fireflies still hold their own, and exceed many modern animated films... yet are now a quarter of a century old! I can still remember the incredible sense of joy and amazement I felt the first time I watch Totoro fly across the sky, and the absolute heartbreak I felt, while watching the devastation of Kobe.

Both of these films left such an impression on me, that I chose to do things like work at Japanator. What always struck me was how two films could be released by a studio, at the same time, and have simliar art styles... yet be on completely different ends of the anime spectrum. If for some incredibly crazy reason you have not had a chance to see either of these films, get your knowledge on and get caught up with some true masterpieces.

Happy Birthday.

I can actually remember when I first watched Totoro, it was on VHS like a year after the original English dub came out. Holy crap talk about taking me back.
