Chocchan's Story and Grave of the Fireflies both share a lot same but again they're two individual stories of different persons.

Both are a lot similar at same time and a lot different at same time also. Where Chocchan's story is very realistic, is Grave of the Fireflies less realistic and has supernatural elements also and is a little bit unpleasant to watch a few times.

Miss Hokusai

Miss Hokusai

As all of Edo flocks to see the work of the revered painter Hokusai, his daughter O-Ei toils diligently inside his studio. Her masterful portraits, dragons and erotic sketches – sold under the name of her father – are coveted by upper crust Lords and journeyman print makers alike. Shy and reserved in public, in the studio O-Ei is as brash and uninhibited as her father, smoking a pipe while sketching drawings that would make contemporary Japanese ladies blush. But despite this fiercely independent spirit, O-Ei struggles under the domineering influence of her father and is ridiculed for lacking the life experience that she is attempting to portray in her art.
