Surprised nobody's mentioned Grave of the Fireflies. Studio Ghibli's biggest bummer.

I thought it was emotional pornography.
Studio Ghibli's version is seen as a anti-war FU to U.S.A. while the autobiography the movie was based on was a warning against pride. The author/the brother did lived and wrote the book about his and his sister's life and the regret that his pride is what killed her. Had he swallowed his pride she would have lived.

Leiji Matsumoto's The Cockpit OVA 2 Sonic Boom Squadron delves into the mind of Ohka Bomb pilot, his bomber crew and the Americans trying to keep the kamikazes away of their ships. Pretty frank discussion of the insanity of the Ohka and those piloting them. FYI this is an alt-history anime so take into consideration when watching the ending.



FYI Ghost in the Shell was created by Masamune Shirow not Mamoru Oshii, and the definite GitS anime version is the S.A.C. series as Shirow himself was involved with those.

Skywhales, an animated short featuring weird equine/Jar Jar Binks looking creatures hunting the titular flying manta ray things. Really bizarre ending.

I love this for the ending alone, and it's world-building approach you really do have to pay attention in order to figure it out.

A very talented animator that just dropped off the face of the earth.

This is even older and sadly the animator just vanished.


No YT re-upload of this one.

Alfred J. Kwak, made by Miyazaki... No, not Hayao, but Miyazaki of Moomin fame (European children adaptations seems to be his schtick, he did some based on a Switzerlandian tale aswell but the name escapes me ATM.) , sure it seems harmless enough but the episode 2 or 3 broke me as a kid. It's based on some Dutch Children's books.



Alfred's whole fucking family dies. And yeah, Hitler is in it. As a little sparrow.

The character was originally designed by the late Harald Siepermann, who also worked for Disney on projects like Mulan, The Emperor's New Groove and Brother Bear. I think the pic you showed is Harald's penmanship. Supposedly he and Hans Bacher were in charge of production design on the cartoon series, so I wouldn't say Miyazaki should take credit entirely for this, simply kept to the look established for the series.

You do have to give the show credit for what they did in the second episode. It's a lot further than what a Disney Afternoon program would give you.

It's been a long time since I last posted something in this thread, but recently I came across a really creepy 3D short animation again. French (with English subs), because for some reason they tend to make a lot of creepy short animations:

So glad this is finally available online. One of the creepiest 3D animations I've seen in the past couple of years:

Despite growing up in a religious household this put the fear of god in me more than anything in the bible.

Saw that at school in kindergarten and got teary eyed when the doggy died at the end. It's the only movie that's ever done that in my entire life. My best friend told me he cried at that part too while we were on the school bus ride home that same day so I didn't feel like as much of a wuss. All Dogs go to Heaven is a great children's movie btw. Seems like they don't make as many mature kids movies now.

Keith David as voice talent for Spawn was a damn fine choice, he definitely sounds the part. The only problem is that there's a cliffhanger by season 3 that could have lead to another season... but it never came. Other than that, it's pretty good, I recommend it.
I remember watching that as a little boy on HBO. It was very vulgar iirc.

True, I liked the film for where it went.
