Sentai Filmworks announced earlier this month that they've acquired the North American distribution rights to Isao Takahata's 1988 masterpiece Grave of the Fireflies. The film, which has been out of print for the last several years, will return to store shelves on DVD on March 6, 2012 and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

Let's hope that once the film is released on Blu-ray in Japan, Sentai Filmworks will have the option to release the title on the format in North America. My fingers are crossed!
