Isao Takahata is one of the most famous directors of anime, or Japanese animated films. Born in Ujiyamada (now Ise), Mie prefecture, Japan, he is a long-term colleague of Hayao Miyazaki and co-head at Studio Ghibli. His four animated films at Studio Ghibli have spanned a remarkable range of genres: war-film (Grave of the Fireflies), romantic drama (Only Yesterday), comedy (My Neighbors the Yamadas), and ecological adventure (Pom Poko). Of these Grave of the Fireflies, in particular, is widely considered one of the
greatest animated films ever made.

I agree with the sentiment of him being on par if not superior to Miyazaki and not getting enough praise as he deserves. I got to see him today at TIFF for a Kaguya-hime screening. He was extremely humble and I agreed with all of his opinions in regard to OST, sound design and hand-drawn v.s digital animation. My respect for him has grown immensely. I'm deeply saddened that Kaguya-hime is most likely his last animated feature film.

People only like Miyazaki because he looks like a cute teddy bear. Takahata is the superior director and would have the same amount of fans if he had the same cuddle factor as Miyazaki.

Deserves as much regard and praise as Myazaki.

Sadly underrated, respect

Akage no Anne was fantastic, must watch more of his works.

I don't like that everybody (majority) are screaming something like "Miyazaki! Miyazaki!", while here we have someone who deserve even more honour. Isao Takahata.


lakshika | 03-24-13, 9:46 PM
omoide poroporo was just brilliant work :3


Manu_ | 03-22-13, 8:28 PM
he is one of the reasons why i think that Anime can be a Gesamtmeisterwerk, a piece of art.


ekavakri | 11-14-12, 6:38 AM
Hotaru no naka!, definitely a masterpice!
