Up in Heaven, Yuki’s grandparents decide that, having turned thirteen years old, she must go down to Earth to a village that is torn by bandits and intervene to save its people. However, if she does not succeed within one year, she will become as insubstantial as the wind. Down in the village, Yuki is befriended by a group of orphans whose parents have been killed by the bandits and who now subsist by begging. Yuki amazes them by taming the wild horse Blizzard. She is instrumental in getting the orphans and farmers to stand up to first the warring bandits and then Goemon, the greedy lord that owns the region. Yuki must then face her greatest challenge when the displeased Demon God that lives in the volcano emerges to destroy those who live beneath.

Anime Yuki from 1981 is something that anybody who loves anime must watch. The story is very simple yet strong and it leaves you wanting to be a part of it. Yuki lives in Heaven with her grandparents when they ask her to come down to Earth and help people in feudal Japan. There she meets friends and her struggle to bring down the feudal lord starts. Art is of course out of date but it's very pretty in it's own way. If something goes in it's favor than I would say that this anime is unique and nothing made recently can come near it

Before you watch this movie you need to understand the context and the circumstances in which it was made. It is also important to take in mind that the director of the movie was left-leaning. The movie is a product of its time, a time of Cold War, capitalism vs communism. A time when many sought to liberate the oppressed (those were the ideals of the common folk of course, not of the governments). A time when a lot of artists were anti-establishment and used their artistic freedom to express themselves and their opinions. This movie is exactly that. This is a story of a read more
