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 Art is of course out of date but it's very pretty in it's own way.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

"Yuki: Snow Fairy" is a movie I stumbled on by accident. I liked the poster, so I watched it.

The story is simple: a 13-year-old snow maiden gets sent down from heaven by her grandparents to go help a village with its problems, namely bandits, war, and everything else that comes with being peasants in feudal Japan. She has one year to fix this mess or else she'll turn into "a dark wind without form who spends all eternity wailing". What unfolds after she goes to earth is very much like a fairytale, and is a "good vs. evil story" with a big climax.
