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.

The Oscars are a joke
Kaguya-hime deserved an award 100x more than Big Hero 6...

Grave of The Fireflies broke my heart, the story shows how much of a genius takahata is, thank you.


Matas | Sep 9, 2015 2:52 PM
Akage no Anne and Hotaru no Haka are incredible. What a master. Definitely hyped to watch Kaguya-hime.

It's good that even Spirited Away got supported by Disney and made it to a win, when you look at the fact it's pretty much a Disney win for the academy's animated category every year. Takahata's not that underdog either in reality, Grave Of The Fireflies is considered a classic in animated and war film and he is one of the most well known animation directors so to call him underrated or unknown isn't that accurate. Saying all that it would be nice if Takahata was recognised by the academy, espeically considering how great a film The Tale Of Princess Kaguya was.
