Here is something I've wanted to show for a long time. It's the movie trailer to one of the all-time great anime films, Gisaburo Suugi's hauntingly beautiful Night on the Galactic Railroad. This movie is often remembered in the same grandiose terms as Grave of the Fireflies, and for many years, this was our best example of "anime as cinematic art."
Do sit down and watch this trailer. The American DVD has been out of print for years, but the fansub is freely available. Just scroll down to the Download These Fansubs section and help yourselves.
