Anime classic "Grave of the Fireflies" now on Blu-Ray

Section23 Films has been on a roll lately. They have just released "Grave of the Fireflies" on Blu-ray for the magical price of $29.99. I remember Streamline Pictures (an anime distributor from the early 90's) charging $39.99 for this on VHS!

This movie is a classic and deserves to be in any true anime fan's collection!

SYNOPSIS: As the Empire of the Sun crumbles upon itself and a rain of firebombs falls upon Japan, the final death march of a nation is echoed in millions of smaller tragedies.  This is the story of Seita and his younger sister Setsuko, two children born at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and now cast adrift in a world that lacks not the care to shelter them, but simply the resources.  Forced to fend for themselves in the aftermath of fires that swept entire cities from the face of the earth, their doomed struggle is both a tribute to the human spirit and the stuff of nightmares. Beautiful, yet at times brutal and horrifying.
