      “Howl’s Moving Castle” did not take a step forward for Studio Ghibli. The Japanese animation studio is renowned for excellent story telling, and stunning animation, but this latest film is not quite an advancement.

      Past films like “My Neighbor Totoro,” “Ponpoko,” “Kiki’s Delvery service” and “Spirited Away,” each brought more creative stories and

      cleaner, more detailed animation as time passed.

      “Howl’s Moving Castle” was an adaptation of a novel of the same name.

      Some concepts of the film portrayed Ghibli’s trade mark abstract- ness, such as translucent ghost-like beings, and strangley cute bugs and monsters.

      However this was not well incorporated with the characters and story.


      • Despite all this, the plot is quite fast paced, and keeps the viewer enticed.

        Ghibli could have had much greater success and advancement if the latest film had been an original story.

        The animation of this film was not exeedingly great, as expectations presented, nor bad.

        Landscapes and buildings were well drawn, and

        very detailed, as other recent Ghibli films, but lacked extra, new amazement.

        This was especially so with the characters; their faces and clothes could have been so much more detailed.

        The “Moving Castle” was a personal dissapointment, but it will throw viewers on an abstract ride.

        Though quite entertaining, it may not provide the satisfaction that is craved.
