The two movies were originally presented as a double feature. This biggest mistake for me was that Grave of the Fireflies was presented AFTER My Neighbour Totoro. Why after being happy watch a very sad one?
One is good and one is unforgettable. You be the judge...
Personally I think Totoro is one of the weaker Ghibli films. Grave of the Fireflies is stunningly beautiful and heartbreaking.
It's extremely close, but (for the moment) I like My Neighbor Totoro just a bit better. Grave of the Fireflies is impressive but, damn, it is one depressing film.

Totoro is cute and iconic Ghibli, but Grave of the Fireflies is De Sica neorealism in anime form - a towering achievement that is one of the most devastating films ever made. Yes, it's depressing, but depressingly humanist. A masterpiece vs. a good Ghibli film - not a contest.
