Synopsis

This pilot is remembered, really, for one notable reason: this is Miyazaki's first time as a solo director. He teamed up with Takahata for the later episodes of the 1971-72 Lupin III series, but Yuki's Sun marked his first time solely in the captain's seat.

Yuki's Sun was based upon a popular shoujo manga (girls' comic) by Tetsuya Chiba which was serialized in 1963. It involves a 10-year-old orphan girl who is adopted into a family. The storyline is somewhat complex, and seems to play out like grand melodrama. Chiba's stories were more sophisticated and grown-up than, say, Osamu Tezuka, who of course was the godfather of postwar Japanese manga.

Plot
One can sail in this kind breeze of an anime. It would be hard to become lost with the slow directions and information given by the female narrator.Her words were not only helpful but spoken in a clear manner.

Granted for some the story does seem to progress in a fast paced fashion but this is not an entire anime but a plot or teaser of a trailer if you will. So, it is a given certain elements especially those with great meaning (like her parents) will leave a lot of questions to be raised.

Maybe it is the sheer joy of the childlike read more
