Akiyuki Nosaka, the Japanese novelist responsible for writing the short story "Grave of the Fireflies" died yesterday in Tokyo. At 85 years old, Nosaka was a survivor of WWII, a part of his life that had a direct impact on his writing for the rest of his life.
Probably his most famous work, Grave of the Fireflies, was adapted into a Studio Ghibli film in 1988. For anyone that hasn't seen it, you should. It is a sobering and sorrowful tale of the impact of WWII on children. Nosaka was well known for his stories about war for children.
