Bittersweet stories that'll keep you wanting more if you watch one don't deny the other.
You like a bit childish stories about big bad wolfs and litlle cute and naive lambs? well the two stories tells almost the same story: in both films very naive lamb meets a wolf and believes that he wont eat him, but how will the wolf act?
Well I think Stormy Night looks a bit newer and has really amazing backgrounds and the wolf is very funny.
Ringing bell scenario is more complex and more morale things come in the way.
Well how two of these films will finish it depends on the wolfs :)
Both series have a wolf and a lamb as the main charectors. Between the 2 animals, freindship begins to bloom and causes trouble for other animals. disturbingly good picture and story plot.... Arashi No Yoru Ni has a much happier story, while Chirin No Suzu focuses more on a dark and dimented tale...
Satsuki, her younger sister Mei and their father have just moved to their new home in the countryside, where grand adventures await them. One day while playing outside in the garden Mei encounters a small creature and decides to follow it. After chasing it through the bushes Mei eventually finds herself at the base of a large Camphor tree and as she drops through a hole in its roots, she lands on the stomach of a large, sleeping forest spirit named Totoro. The two sisters befriend the gentle spirit and are soon introduced to a world more fantastical than they could ever imagine, from playing with soot spirits to meeting a Catbus, to flying through the air and even making the trees grow. However when Mei disappears, Satsuki must call on the help of her new friends if she wants any hope of being able to find her sister...
If I would get my kids into anime Totoro and Arashi no Yoru ni are probably the first two anime I'd show them. Both have a very different style from the usual anime. They are lower on the content and higher on the animation, have fun creatures and a special slower flow throughout the movie. They are perfect for kids!
They are both very fun animes! The freindship between one-another are both unheard of, and strangly exciting. You instantly fall in love with the main charectors and become engulfed with the differnt animation styles and backgrounds. They are both family freindly and entertaining... even for teenager (Personal experience)
With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?
Mononoke Hime and Arashi no Yoru ni both have wonderful animation which stresses the animals very well. Both are a sad tale as much as they are a tale about friendship. The only real difference is that Mononoke Hime is more serious while Arashi no Yoru ni is more for those young of heart.
The animation tells the story very well and really expresses the animals/creatures feelings. In both movies, forbidden relationships develope and cause havoc. The comedy is light and fun, just as it should be in these complicated tales...
Chihiro and her family are on their way to their new home, when they discover an abandoned amusement park. After Chihiro's family mysteriously turn into pigs, she is thrown into a surreal world of magic and fantasy. Join her as she struggles to survive in the bathhouse of the gods, ruled by an evil witch who has stolen not only her name, but her way back to the real world.
Arashi no Yoru ni is a story about goats and wolves, but the story, animation and flow of the movie make it very fit for kids to see. On the other hand we have Spirited Away which actually has a scarier villain, yet in both the main characters are left by themselves to look for a way out. On top of that, Spirited Away has some rather peculiar creatures as well that help it appeal to the same younger anime fans.
Each series includes strange creatures/animals that can speak. they are Family freindly and very entertaining and fun. Strange relationships that are both forbiden and beautiful begin to form. The events unfold and begin to change the main charectors in a more mature and pleasant way...
Kururu, Chiriri, Sarara, and Hororo are four faries who aspire to become human. To do this, they leave the fairy world to study for a year in our world. Aided by their friends Sensei-san and Tama, they have fun learning about topics ranging from school graduation ceremonies and sports festivals to romance and caring for flowers. But as the end of the year of study approaches, will they have learned enough to realize their dreams?
Arashi no Yoru ni and Bottle Fairy both have a very relaxed feeling. Combining several elements of cuteness and a fun-loving atmosphere they definitely feel alike. Bottle Fairy is cute for the young, but is still interesting for those who are older (if you're interested in the Japanese culture). Arashi no Yoru ni has less to offer for the older fans, but it's a nice change of pace from the usual anime.
