Grave of the Fireflies, 1988 anime from Studio Ghibli is on tonight... actually, on at the moment on TCM (Turner Classic Movie channel). It's English dubbed. It's very serious and depressing movie, but, if you're interested...

In our vast unwinding existence we tend to forget the things that were important to us but by forgetting them we realize that they weren't all that important but, by thinking that, u remember what u have forgotten and in that instant of remembering what you were trying to remember you forget about the thing you have forgotten so before you start to forget just remember those who truely remembered you won't be forgotten... or not. --------My Chocolate Family-------- Elder Sis- Jen Elric Elder Bro- DarkBlade Alchemist; Mustang's Appentice Lil Sis- Ed's numbuh 1 fan; animefangirl; braindead fma fan;& Kakashi's #1 girlfriend ---------------------------------------- join my chocolate family, pm me anytim

Well I can put a mention in too:
For any British Ghibli/Miyazaki fans, Film4 will be showing a couple films next week. On Sunday 29th August they are showing The Cat Returns at 3.20pm. On Wednesday 1st September is Kiki's Delivery Service at 2.40pm.
The story takes place in 2010 in Koganei, western Tokyo and like the novel revolves around a group of "tiny people" who are 10 cm tall that live under the floorboards of a typical human household. The story begins when a boy named Sho arrives at the house his mother lived in as a child. When Sho leaves the car, he sees a cat trying to attack something in the bushes. But the cat leaves after being attacked by a crow. Sho goes to see what the cat was trying to attack, to see a borrower named Arrietty.  That night Arrietty`s father Pod takes Arrietty above the floorboards to show her how he gets sugar. Pod shows Arrietty the kitchen, behind the walls, and a dollhouse. Before Arreitty and Pod could leave, Arietty notices that Sho is awake, and drops the sugar cube that they got. Sho tells them to not be afraid of him. Pod realised that Sho has seen Arreitty and they will have to move.
There's also rumor of him making a Kaguya-hime (Tale Of The Bamboo Cutter) movie adaptation. I would enjoy that <3
