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.

one of most underdog director ever

One of the greatest and most underrated.

Understated directors are doomed to be underrated.

Sucks Kaguya didn't win the Oscar. Takahata deserves more praise and respect. Most of Miyazaki's works are overrated anyway. If Kaguya is his final film at least he went out on top. Wind Rises was probably the weakest and most boring Miyazaki film; terrible way to end a career.

@Zolar and Evil_Genius -

It's not a case of one director being better than the other. They both belong in the hall of fame of the greatest animators ever.

I definitely get a little pissy when idiots just assume that Grave of the Fireflies is a Miyazaki film though. Usually it's people in the West who make that mistake, and it sucks when the man doesn't even get credit for his own masterpiece. But most people who know what they are talking about and have had the pleasure of seeing Takahata's works understand that he's a genius.

Hotaru no Haka was great.
I loved that movie

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.
