    A personal hero of mine and one of the finest animation directors who ever lived. A sad loss.
  4. Grave of the Fireflies is brilliant.

    Even more reason to peek a bit deeper into the Ghibli catalog this year. Thanks for the legendary work.

    His ‘Akage no Anne’ is my best fav anime ever made. It makes me really weep all the time.
