Granted near-unfettered access to the notoriously insular Studio Ghibli, director Mami Sunada follows the three men who are the lifeblood of Ghibli – the eminent director Hayao Miyazaki, the producer Toshio Suzuki, and the elusive and influential “other director” Isao Takahata – over the course of a year as the studio rushes to complete two films, Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Takahata’s The Tale of The Princess Kaguya. The result is a rare “fly on the wall” glimpse of the inner workings of one of the world’s most celebrated animation studios, and an insight into the dreams, passion and singular dedication of these remarkable creators.

My Neighbors the Yamadas (ホーホケキョとなりの山田くん, Hōhokekyo Tonari no Yamada-kun?) is an anime film directed by Isao Takahata and released by Studio Ghibli on July 17, 1999. The movie is a family comedy that is presented in a comic strip style which is unusual since all the other Studio Ghibli movies are presented in the anime style. Based on the yonkoma manga Nono-chan by Hisaichi Ishii, it was the first completely digital Studio Ghibli movie. Takahata wanted Yamada-kun to have the art style of watercolor pictures rather than cel pictures. To achieve that, the traditional paint-on-cel techniques were replaced with digital technology, making Yamada-kun the first Ghibli movie to be painted and animated entirely on computers. Despite decent reviews, the movie did not fare well at the box office in Japan. It was released on DVD in America in August 2005. Produced by Toshio Suzuki.

The story featured the lives of a Japanese family and their crazy life happenings. The movie is funny but possesses a tone of sincerity like many movies by Isao Takahata.

My Neighbors the Yamadas received an Excellence Award for animation at the 1999 Japan Media Arts Festival.

A years ago, on August 6th 1945, the most devastating weapon known to mankind was unleashed, for the first time ever, upon the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Dispatched from the US bomber Enola Gay, the absurdly-nicknamed "Little Boy" wiped out 80,000 civilian targets in one fell swoop and destroyed 48,000 of the city's 76,000 buildings. It was followed a few days later, on August 9th, with the dropping of "Fat Man" on Nagasaki by the bomber Bockscar, with similarly catastrophic results. By 1950, the radioactive after-effects had claimed a total of 200,000 victims in Hiroshima alone, lingering on to blight the city's "hibakusha" blast survivors and generations of their bloodline with a host of radiation-induced sicknesses including blindness, liver disorders, chronic fatigue, leukaemia and numerous types of cancer.
