The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train In the early 90s, Studio Ghibli did an experiment – it put together some of its young animators, The Girl on the Train all in their twenties and thirties, and gave them a chance to make a film all on their own, quickly, cheaply and with quality. Ultimately the project went over budget and over schedule, eventually airing on local television in 1993 and failing to make much of an impact. Until its US release in 2016, it was a rare film for Ghibli aficionados only. The experiment wasn’t repeated, but what resulted from it was Ocean Waves, the queer film Ghibli didn’t know they were making.

As the first film not directed by the studio’s founders, Ocean Waves eschewed the whimsy that was starting to define Ghibli for a more grounded slice of life character drama. As the most modest and least celebrated of the studio’s works, this film explores the love triangle between two teenage boys, best friends Taku and Yutaka, and new girl Rikako. But watching the film, many contemporary and modern fans began to think that were was more than just friendship between the two boys.
