  1. Grave of the Fireflies is a tough one to get through, but also a beautiful and important film. I’ll be watching it in the big screen this summer when Fathom Events and GKids (current US distributor of most of Studio Ghibli’s DVDs and BluRays) show it as part of GhibliFest.

    I know you have My Neighbor Totoro coming up. Nikki may want to arm herself for the discussion by reading an essay from Bright Wall, Dark Room about how Totoro is a different kind of storytelling. (

    I look forward to your future podcasts.
