      If you’re a fan of Japanese animation like myself, there’s a chance that you’ve probably heard of Hayao Miyazaki. He’s actually a manga artist, animator, film director screenwriter and producer that is responsible for creating masterpieces like “Spirited Away”, “Howl’s Moving Castle”, “Princess Mononoke” and “Kiki’s Delivery Service”. Those are only a few of his works and accomplishments, and while I’m yet to see and read everything he’s done, I still think of him as one of my favourite animators. Even some of my own personal art and writing is influenced by him.

      Perhaps one of the reasons why I am so intrigued with the Japanese animator is that it seems, like me, he knew just what he wanted to do from a very young age. While he completed his degrees


      in Political Science and Economics, according to a few sources he became interested in animation after seeing one particular animated piece and becoming fascinated by a particular character and the genre itself. He soon went on to work for an animation company, and eventually went on to direct and write his own animated pieces.

      Like many of his fans, one of the things that I admire the most about Hayao Miyazaki is his boundless imagination and how he manages to incorporate it in the plots of his animated films. Now as much as I admire a lot of Japanese animated series and films for their creative plots, quite a number of them come off as unsustainable, disorganised and not properly planned to me. Of the few works that I’ve seen

      from Hayao Miyazaki, that was never the case.

      The plots of the animation are always very unusual and captivating, and even though many of them have elements of fantasy, the plots are always well planned and thrilling. I think that a great example of this would be Spirited Away, which has a type of “Alice in Wonderland” effect when you take into consideration that the main character Chihiro enters a magical spirit world where she can’t seem to escape. However, as the plot develops, it becomes more complex and sinister, eventually turning into a love story.

      it uniquely your own. Miyazaki uses a lot of hand drawing in his animation which I have deep respect for especially since a lot of animators and companies seem to have abandoned that route and would rather do many of their drawings by computer. This is something that has made me lose a little bit of respect for the Japanese animated films since their detailed drawings were one of the things that I used to admire them for, and I believe that doing a lot of the drawings by computer helps rob them of that. Despite all of that, while Hayao Miyazaki’s style is not necessarily as detailed and realistic as some animators and animation companies, there is still something about it that feels authentic and has a lot of
      appeal.

      Last but not least, one of the things that I love about his plots are that it can be watched and appreciated by people of all ages. They’re generally fairly easy to understand and don’t have too many adult situations in it so that it cannot be watched by young children, unlike some other anime. Many of them might have a little violence in it, but it doesn’t have flat out gore like some Japanese anime.

      In 2013 Hayao Miyazaki announced his retirement and so I don’t expect to be seeing anything else from him, especially since he stated that his work has gotten much harder at his age. I respect and understand his decision, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not sad I won’t be able to see more from him.

Yes, I agree, Studio Ghibli has had some great works. I’ve watched many but I’m confident there is more I need to discover. The Studio Ghibli movies are cute and magical and can be very inspiring. The movies can target all ages of people from age five to ninety-five Very kawaii and fun I will keep looking for more Miyazaki movies to watch

Brilliant man. I ve had the pleasure of watching many of his movies such as Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle, Kiki s Delivery Service and more. When I watched his films, each of them have their own special element like a magical world that you peer into.

Often his movies are so unique, the environment and the storylines just take my breath away. It takes me by to my childhood, every day was a new adventure and only I would just live carefree and create my own imaginary stories.

Of course everyone grows up and becomes an adult but it brings me an undefined feeling of peace when I watch Mr. Miyazaki films. I won t spoil any of the films but I only ask that those of you that haven t any of his films to please do. You ll thank me later.
