Japan On Fire 12: My Neighbours The Yamadas (1999)

Studio Ghibli season continues and we switch visionaries. This time Isao Takahata gets his due with a brief bio before Stoo and Ken dive deep into the sparsely animated family comedy My Neighbours The Yamadas. A movie that has not yet got its domestic abuse sequel despite being a domestic snapshot. One can dream. We had mic troubles on Stoo’s end so for a few minutes between 22.49 and 30.15 Stoo switches temporarily to his laptop mic so there’s an echoey few minutes there.
