Movie Fact #847 – October 6th, 2015:

The 1988 Japanese animated drama film “Grave of the Fireflies”, based on the 1967 semi-autobiographical short story “Grave of the Fireflies” by author Akiyuki Nosaka, tells the story of two siblings, Seita (Japanese voice actor: Tsutomu Tatsumi, English voice actor: J. Robert Spencer) and Setsuko (Japanese voice actor: Ayano Shiraishi, English voice actor: Rhoda Chrosite), and their desperate struggle to survive during the final months of the Second World War. However, director Isao Takahata was the only living animator involved on the project who had actually survived bomb blasts from that time.
