Always thought Haku and Chihiro would kiss in the end...
What's on your mind?
I tried bringing these up in comments but they went unnoticed so, I will try here instead.
I have noticed some things about some particular characters in the Ghibli films I enjoy most. And I wonder if anyone else noticed.
The Mama Aiuto Gang Boss: His appearance and the English voice Garrett did, reminds be of Bluto from the Popeye cartoons (the Fleischer ones).
Kamaji: His English voice actor David Ogden Stiers made him sound a bit like George C. Scott.
The head of the Japanese school board in From Up on Poppy Hill: I thought looked somewhat and sounded in the English dub like Ed Asner, In fact, until I read the credits and watched the "Behind the Microphone" featurette, I was almost certain it was him and was a bit disappointed that it wasn't. Rest his soul, by the way.
It has blown me away.
“Le vent se lève, il faut tenter de vivre.”
”The wind is rising, we must try to live.”
The last time I watched it was eight years ago. (I think) I did not understand it, it was so boring. The day before yesterday i rewatched it and it was a whole new wonderful ghibli experience.
According to Wikipedia Miyazaki didn’t want to make the film as he thought the subjects were inappropriate for children. But one of the staff members suggested that “children should be allowed to be exposed to subjects they are not familiar with” and thus we were rewarded with The Wind Rises.
