HOUSTON, December 1, 2011— Sentai Filmworks proudly announces the company’s acquisition of distribution rights for the critically acclaimed animation masterpiece GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES. Based on the semi-autobiographical retellings of survivor Nosaka Akiyuki and directed by Iaso Takahata (co-founder, with Hayao Miyazaki, of Japan’s legendary Studio Ghibli, the studio that performed the animation duties for the film,) GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES has been universally hailed as both an artistic and emotional tour de force, with famed critic Roger Ebert calling the feature “An emotional experience so powerful that it forces a rethinking of animation” and stating that “it belongs on any list of the greatest war films ever made.” Sentai Filmworks is extraordinarily honored to have been given the privilege of handling the digitally restored version of one of the art of animation’s true crowning achievements.

Takaaki and Ryuji are lovers and can’t get enough of each other – at least at first, but they soon fall out of love and break up and get on with their lives, yet their love for each other seems to linger, especially when Takaaki is assigned to Ryuji’s school where he is to be a substitute teacher, and inevitably they meet up again, but Takaaki still feels as though he has put the past aside and not dwelled on it. He would be wrong of course as he is only lying to himself – he thinks of Ryuji all the time, and breaking up was very hard to do for him after the fact.
