"Princess Mononoke" is a 1997 Japanese epic historical fantasy anime film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, produced by Studio Ghibli and distributed by Toho. It is set in the late Muromachi period (approximately 1336 to 1573) of Japan with fantasy elements. The story follows the young Emishi prince Ashitaka's involvement in a struggle between the gods of a forest and the humans who consume its resources. The term "Mononoke" is not a name, but a Japanese word for a spirit or monster. Unlike other Ghibli films, Mononoke has a darker and more violent setting and tone.
This is a two-disk version of the film. Disk one consists of the film, and disk two consists of two bonus features, which are: an animation/comic switching feature, and a Miyazaki Heritage Trailer.
This film is not suitable for children.
Grave of the Fireflies is a 1988 Japanese animated war drama film written and directed by Isao Takahata and animated by Studio Ghibli. It is based on the 1967 semi-autobiographical short story "Grave of the Fireflies" by Akiyuki Nosaka. Set in the city of Kobe, Japan, the film tells the story of two siblings, Seita and Setsuko, and their desperate struggle to survive during the final months of the Second World War. The film was critically acclaimed. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times considered it to be one of the best and most powerful war films and, in 2000, included it on his "Great Movies" list.
The disks are in very good condition, as are the cases they are kept in.
