As One Would Expect from Studio Ghibli

by -

The product was in new condition when it arrived and was fully functional when I put it into the Blu-Ray player. This version includes the new and the old English Dub, as well as the original Japanese audio (with English subtitles). In terms of the movie itself, it was a great movie and I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who are interested in history. Overall, it was a great product and met all my expectations.

Major Tear-Jerker!

by -

As expected of Studio Ghibli, this is a masterpiece on a disc.

I cried 8 times throughout the film, with both the Japanese and remastered English dubs, that's how you know it's good.

Highly recommend to anyone with a heart, and who is not afraid to cry.

An absolutely brutal film to watch...

by -

Ghibli made the most curious decision to run originally run this in theaters with My Neighbor Totoro. That had to be the most bipolar double-bill in anime history!
What can be said about this that's positive? Yes, it's animated well and does a nice job of getting across the story of two orphans struggling to survive in the aftermath of World War II. This is a Japan where basic food supplies are stretched to the limit and the country is psychologically shattered. This is NOT the happy-go-lucky country depicted in most modern anime. You can expect the exact-opposite of the feelings Totoro left in you at the end of that film!
There's nothing warm or fuzzy about this film -- it is brutal and unapologetic as the story unveils. You may never want to watch this film again so I would recommend renting it unless you're a Ghibli completist.
This is NOT my favorite of Takahata's films -- personally, I prefer just about anything else he did besides this or Only Yesterday.

5 star rating out of 5

Even I can't watch this without crying my eyes out.

GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES is probably one of the saddest -- if not THE saddest -- animated features you'll ever see. Directed by the late Isao Takahata, this movie, about two children struggling to survive in World War II Japan, will wrench tears out of even the iciest of viewers. It's also a glorious work of art, particularly in the richly detailed backgrounds and genuine emotional approach in which Takahata chooses to handle the material. Sentai's BD presents this tearjerker with two different dubs -- one by CPM, which is OK but hampered by a miscast Setsuko, and Sentai's own, which, although not perfect, is better overall. The Japanese version is included as well. Even in Anime there are few movies that literally everyone really MUST see. GRAVE is one such movie. Even if you can only do so once.

A Glimpse into the Real Consequences of Total War

by -

A truly somber film. An honest and unflinching look at the human tragedy of worn-torn Japan at the end of and shortly after WWII. Other reviews attest to the tear-jerking potency of this story.

As for this edition, this disc includes three audio versions: the original Japanese, the 1988 English dub, and the Sentai Filmworks' English dub. I have only watched the Japanese version as of now, but have both English dubs was an unexpected feature. If you don't have a copy of this historical movie but would like one, this edition is a good one.
