I don't like Porco Rosso that much anymore.

Grave of the Fireflies.

Fireflies is Ghibli's only mean-spirited film; Rosso is light fun, but it's still better than condemning children for having the gall to grieve as orphans.

Fireflies is an anti-war film, while Porco Rosso is more of an anti-fascist film. If I were rating them on their ability to get their message across, Fireflies would win. But I am rating these films based on which on I personally like more, and there the clear answer is Porco Rosso.

I gotta go with Graves....
