When it comes to choosing a good movie, any fan who saw any of Ghibli movies will recommend them first. Well however, there is this one most beautiful, and I dare say, a bit perfect movie about the most unusual friendship and hardships it went through, Arashi no Yoru ni, also known as One Stormy Night, the phrase with the meaning of greatest importance ever in this movie.

~Story~ (10)

It is rare to find a storyline so well developed, such an amazing ending, and heart-throbbing situations. So as we already said, it is about the friendship between a wolf and a goat, an odd read more

Arashi no Yuru Ni. Please do not watch this unless you realize straight away that this is a Japanese Disney movie. The art, the message, the entire feel of this "anime" is that of a Disney cartoon, but in a good way.

Story: the moral of this story is "don't judge a book by it's cover" or something to that effect. Learning how to get along, no matter who you are is deeply conveyed in this. It's nicely done. The goat and wolf meet each other at night, they can't see each other but they end up having a really nice read more

A cute and lovely story conveyed by gorgeous art. One can't ask for a better thing to watch on a Sunday afternoon.

This is a children's movie, surrounded by an aura of good feelings and easy humour. But everyone needs good feelings and easy humour once in a while! The story is simple, as well as the objective: a wolf and a sheep are friends and, no matter the differences, they will fight for their friendship till the end.

This story is pampered by beautiful art. One of the better I have ever seen. In a digital-traditional mix sometimes you're not sure what is watercolour and what read more

Arashi no Yoru ni is a story of friendship between a goat and a wolf. It's adopted from Yuichi Kimura's book, and in 2005 the animated movie won the Japan Academy Award in its category. Author writes for children, yet below surface it appeared to me as much more mature and adult staff.

The plot is simple, without much details, and not much action even though at some moments one expects something may happen - such as in a foggy day when Gobu (wolf) saves Mei (goat) from his pack. In a stormy night (arashi no yoru ni) they both find shelter in a read more

Anime: Chirin no Suzu
They both involve a wolf and a sheep/lamb/goat (whatever you want to call it) spending time together, just in different ways. In Chirin no Suzu, the sheep is the wolf's apprentice and eventually his friend. In Arashi, the wolf and sheep are best friends. In both movies you wonder how such relationships may conquer the odds. They both have a lamb-goat who's mother was killed by a wolf. Both movies may seem for children, but in fact, they are a bit dark (for a mature child maybe?). These movies are perfect for adults or teens with an inner child.

Anime: There She Is!!
Both deal with relationships not accepted by society as
portrayed by animals. The main characters in each are ostracized at some point by society and must deal with the realities of their relationship.

In Arashi it's a friendship between a wolf and a sheep
and in There She Is it's between a rabbit and a cat.

Also both are wonderful watches ;]

Anime: Omae Umasou da na
Both contain odd unusual friendships. This one also has a bit more action in it, though.

Anime: Jungle Taitei (1997)
Both stories are meant particularly for children, and they both revolve around animals and their way of living. If you liked Jungle Emperor Leo, then you'll probably find Arashi no Yoru ni to be even better.

Both feature cute talking animals, and have a strong/frequent theme of friendship.
