In the aftermath of a World War II bombing, two orphaned children struggle to survive in the Japanese countryside. To Seita and his four year old sister, the helplessness and indifference of their countrymen is even more painful than the enemy raids. Through desperation, hunger and grief, these children's lives are as heartbreaking and fragile as their spirit and love is inspiring. Grave of the Fireflies is a tale of the true tragedy of war and innocence lost, not only of the abandoned young, but of an entire nation.

  • The anime you have watch but the anime you’ll only want to watch once

    By Dur_P0WER1
    I’m not really into the anime scene, but this was an enjoyable/emotional film. All I have to say is just watch it
  • Don’t love this dub

    By Jedijoe64
    The original English dub I feel has more emotion than this newer one. It may just be that I’m used to the original dub. #1 best film.
  • Rerelease it with original soundtrack

    By Netscorer

  • Great movie

  • What a Wonderful Movie

    By BJE551
    I think the title says it all. If you’re a great fan of Spirited Away this movie will not disappoint you, it’s an instant classic showing the Japanese dramatic situation post WW2, with a particular story in one family. Highly recommended !
