Fragile Fireflies

The emotional Grave of Fireflies anime movie to Sting’s haunting song “Fragile”.

It took me 2 years to want to see this anime again after seeing it for the first time, it affected me so much. When I did watch it again, it was to create this video.

My intention was to make a music video that people, whether or not they had seen this anime, would not mind watching more than once. Please let me know if I succeeded.

I did manipulate the video to be consistently black and white. The anime movie has some duotone scenes, but the majority of the Ghibli film is in color.

LYRICS:

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the color of the evening sun
Tomorrow’s rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime’s argument
That nothing comes from violence
and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
Like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
Like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are
