Anne of Green Gables (1979) - Japan with an ’E’

September 21, 2022

In the fourth week of "Animonth," Dan and Brian take a look at some international animation -- specifically, anime. Dan gives a brief overview of pre-1990 Japanese animation before introducing a delightful and pastoral Isao Takahata adaptation of the 1909 novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery. They approach the series via the feature length edit of the show's first 6 episodes. Join as they celebrate the loveliness and gentleness of the show, as well as its robust emotional inner life and discuss a few other (existing and imagined) Anne adaptations.

Check out Dan's movie reviews:
