Sometimes fate pushes us in unexpected directions. That’s what happened to Budori Gusuko, who was living an idyllic life in the forest with his father, mother, and younger sister. This all changed along with the weather, which drove the other villagers away and brought tragedy upon Budori’s family.
Budori eventually found another place to live, but his new peaceful existence didn’t last for long, and another change in the weather forced him to start over again from scratch. Now he’s older and all settled in with a good job studying volcanoes. So what will this wiser version of Budori do when history seems destined to repeat itself once more?
Based on the 1932 fantasy novel by Night on the Galactic Railroad author Kenji Miyazawa, The Life of Budori Gusuko comes from writer and director Gisaburō Sugii. The results are another instant classic anime film worth experiencing and sharing with others over and over again.
