Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni, Sarusuberi: Miss Hokusai Recommendations
Two historical movies set in very different eras but both have a very similar artistic touch, combining the real with the imaginary in a seamless way, incorporating the drawings of the characters into the animation itself. Magical realism at its best.
Miss Hokusai is based on the myths and legends around a very famous and real artist, whereas In This Corner of the World is based on a very famous and real event, told through the lives of the characters.
Both are "Slice of Life" period pieces centered on the life of a young woman with a passion for painting and drawing. Both have a very similar tone and portray hardships with a positive light.
