-Miyazaki Returns (Again…)-

CJ, Josh and IBCF discuss the latest world shattering announcement that Hayao Miyazaki is returning to the world of anime. The group talk about Miyazaki’s style, influence and what they like about the famous director. The Patreon Question this week deals with what would happen to Studio Ghibli after Miyazaki leaves the studio for good.


-Excerpt-

CJ – I enjoy Poko Roso. I don’t think its his best film, but I don’t think its his worst. If I had to pick a worst, I would honestly pick Spirited Away.
IBCF –
WHAT!
CJ –
Yeah…
IBCF –
Wait, you aren’t being sarcastic are you?
Josh –
Here I would call you a Communist, except Miyazaki himself was also a Communist. So it doesn’t quite work.


Thank you for your continued support!

  1. Thanks for answering my question. I suppose if Ghibli was originally founded for the sake of creating Miyazaki’s films, then it would make sense for it to gradually dissolve if he were no longer around to guide the studio. I agree that in terms of the talent that’s been cultivated there, much like how most of the creative staff at Gainax went on to form Studio Trigger, Ghibli’s talented staff will likely move on to create their own studios. Heck, maybe Ponoc is already the Trigger to Ghibli’s Gainax. I guess we’ll just have to see how the studio fares after Mary and the Witch’s Flower comes out.

    Oh, and the Michael Bay of anime is clearly Tetsuro Araki.
