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.

More talented yet less popular than Miyazaki.

Thank you for Only yesterday. It is a very beautiful and touching movie 10/10

Thank you for creating the masterpiece known as "Only yesterday"

I had a bright smile through the whole movie and i also cried at the end of it...

All of the anime movies and series that he's directed draw you in as if you're one of the characters in the story. He's truly mastered the art of story-telling. I wish there were more like him.

Akage no anne is amazing.
Thank you

A genius of making-feel-good animated works.

@Ako-
Isao Takahata was not the author of the biography of the semi-autobiographical novel "Grave of the Fireflies".
The author was Akiyuki Nosaka.
Takahata only produced and directed the film.


Ako- | Jan 19, 9:32 PM
I don't think highly of him, especially watching graves of the fireflies and then finding out what Takahata really did to his sister.
It may of been the only survival choice but still..

Hats off to the Master.

P.S. Isao Takahata > Hayao Miyazaki
