Keyframe 114 – Post-War Pat’s Big Bag of Letters

With the sad news that Ghibli co-founder and legendary anime director Isao Takahata passed away, we take some time to remember some of his remarkable work. After that it’s time for us to continue our examination of the Winter season in anime, so join us
