Spirited Away, I'd rather watch.

Spirited away is more beautiful and extravagant than Grave of the Fireflies in my opinion.

C'mon Flickcharters, lift up your game! This is an ultimate matchup of two of Studio Ghibli's finest masterworks. While I currently prefer Spirited Away by a LONG, LONG, LONG shot, I did recently re-watch a bit of Grave of the Fireflies to find it wrecking me the way it seems to wreck everyone, so my vote could change in the near future. Hell of a matchup though.

Gotta go Grave...gut punch.

Oh, yeah, certainly Grave. That movie makes my ovaries hurt.

Absolutely Studio Ghibli's two best films. And Spirited Away is certainly a masterpiece, but the the raw emotional power of Grave of the Fireflies is something I had never experienced before, and for that I have to give it to Grave.

i love both, but i prefer miyazaki to takahata here

I love the beautiful fantasy of Spirited Away more than the brutality of Grave.
