Storyline

Fleeing a violent thunderstorm, a young goat named Mei becomes separated from his tribe and takes shelter in a cabin. He soon is not alone, as another creature limps inside. In the dark they cannot see each other, both have colds and cannot smell each other, but in conversation assume they are of the same kind for they have much in common even apart from a shared fear of thunder, having been taught by elders to run fast to survive and to value loyalty and friendship. They agree to meet the next day for a picnic, with the words "stormy night" used to identify each other. Getting past their initial shock at seeing each other in the daylight, their friendship grows even though they were born enemies, as a goat and a wolf. They continue to meet secretly with Gav fighting off his natural predator tendencies. One day Gav helps Mei escape a wolf hunt, and they are observed together. The other goats demand that Mei use his friend to get details of the wolves plans or be exiled. Gav is ... Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Wow.
5 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Arashi no Yoru Ni is a wonderful tale. It's well written, beautiful animation that I haven't seen since Akira, great voice talents, a nice ending, and it was kid friendly without being cheesy.

Admitedly the odds of a wolf and a goat being friends are practically zero, but after seeing a lioness take care of a gazelle there's really nothing to far-fetched about it. The friendship between Gabu and Mei was a strong bond that was able to get them through even life threatening situations throughout the film. I will grant, many anime tend to show a bond of friendship being close to that of guy love, and Arashi no Yoru Ni isn't an exception, but it's easy to look past that. I actually got a tear in my eye when I though Gabu had died.

What stunned me most was the animation. The colors in the film were vibrant, the shadows and highlights were smooth and easy moving without seeming like paint, and the backgrounds looked as if they had been drawn by Da Vinci himself.

If you want a good story that is fairly kid friendly without being cheesy, wonderful animation and some lovable characters, Arashi no Yoru Ni is right for you.
