(above) Concept boards for Grave Of The Fireflies. Its such a sad film I’ve only ever seen it once. I remember my Japanese colleague telling me its shown on Japanese television once every year during WWII memorial day to remind everyone the horrors of war.

Ni No Kuni’s pretty standard as far as Japanese role-playing games go. The world, characters, and general art design are top notch, which is expected considering who’s behind it, but the game itself if nothing special. Also, you should definitely listen to the soundtrack. It’s done by none other than Joe Hisashi! It’s fantastic that even though he was composing for a video game, he still approached his work with the utmost respect. It’s easily the finest game score I’ve ever heard.

Ur, never really paid attention to Ghibli besides getting in contact to few of their works coincidentally…. I wonder what’s in all those books. Beautiful efforts of works! (^_^)d
