    not really a fan of the film, but Grave of the Fireflies is depicted around true events.
    Girl's High is said to be derived from real life experiences of the original author.
    not sure if it counts, but Hajime no Ippo references many things to real boxers, including the current world champ.

      Off the top of my head, Peacemaker Kurogane and Rurouni Kenshin are loosely based on real events and people. Many characters being actual historical figures.

        How about Sengoku Basara, Hyouge Mono and Tono to Issho? Oda Nobunaga was a real person.

          If it's just based on real people, then Sengoku Otome (Battle Girls) would count.
          Inspired by well-known stories:
          Saiyuki (Journey to the West)

          Koihime Musou, Ikkitousen - Romance of the Three Kingdoms

          I think Yagyu Jubei was real, so throw in Jubei-chan and J2 (sequel).

          And Samurai Girls falls into the same loosely-inspired by historical characters category.

            Hugo the Nagotiater, there was a famed indevidual that did go around to save hostages. I cannor remember in name but he was killed by some capters.

            Reign the Conquerer, a styalized view of Alexander the Great.

            Licenced by Royalty has a connection to the England/Northern Ireland conflict. L/R may be about mining right, if I remember, it does have a subsevent group of people dominated by a monarchy.
            With the need for a body guard, I recall how Lord Mountbatton was assanated. This is not a per batem show but a well representation of feeling, emotions and violent drive of what was under the serface.

              There's a movie out there called "Miyamoto Musashi" which is about Miyamoto Musashi. There's another one out there called "Spring and Chaos" that's about one of Japan's greatest authors, I think his name is Kenji Miyazawa. There's also another called "Nitaboh" about a the guy who invented a style of playing the shamisen. Obviously these movies embellish some, but they are based on actual people, so there's that.

                Otogi Zochi & Kenshin have strong roots in the history of Japan.

                  Samurai 7 is a 7 disk series about cybernetic samurai defending a village against (mecha using) bandits. However, its actually an adaptation of Seven Samurai, a period flick by Akira Kurosawa - which in turn was based on the (American) Western The Magnificent Seven. Its not a must-see, but I always enjoy it when I pick it up, and the conditions of a feudal era Japanese town map suprisingly well onto a poor post-Apocalyptic village

                  Satoshi Kon's Tokyo Godfathers, a movie about three homeless people who find an abandoned baby on Christmas Eve, is based on a (much older) live action movie. There are a lot of deus ex machina solutions, but its a very different, very interesting story

                  -William Blake, "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell"
