Overview

The thought-provoking, aesthetically pleasing animated films of Hayao Miyazaki attract audiences well beyond the director's native Japan. Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away were critically acclaimed upon U.S. release, and the earlier My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service have found popularity with Americans on DVD.This critical study of Miyazaki's work begins with an analysis of the visual conventions of manga, Japanese comic books, and animé; an overview of Japanese animated films; and a consideration of the techniques deployed by both traditional cel and computer animation. This section also details Miyazaki's early forays into comic books and animation, and his output prior to his founding of Studio Ghibli. Part Two concentrates on the Studio Ghibli era, outlining the company's development and analyzing the director's productions between 1984 and 2004, including Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro and his newest film, Howl's Moving Castle.The second section also discusses other productions involving Studio Ghibli, including Grave of the Fireflies and The Cat Returns. Appendices supply additional information about Studio Ghibli's merchandise production, Miyazaki's global fan base, and the output of other Ghibli directors.Freelance writer Dani Cavallaro lives in London.

    SpiritedAwayFanfictionSneakPEEKpart3

    They sat in silence for a moment, when Chihiro suddenly asked: "Haku? Do you think I'm..... different?" Haku forced a smile. He had a feeling what she REALLY meant by 'different', and if ANYONE was harrassing HIS Chihiro, they would pay. "Of course. That's why everyone here likes you so much. You're a special girl." "Not *that* kind of different." Chihiro said, although she a hint of a smile on her face for a moment. "I mean, like.... an outcast?" Haku frowned. His suspicions had been confirmed. "Who said that?" He demanded. Chihiro shrugged. She kind of wished that she hadn't brought it up, now she sounded like a baby who couldn't take a little pestering. "Just... some girls. Karin and I try to avoid them, but they hate me. Just me, actually: I think they secretly wish Karin would hang out with them. She just says that they're jealous." She snuck a look at Haku, and to her surprise, he was giving her a "well duh" look. "Of course they're jealous." he said with total conviction, but Chihiro wasn't convinced. "What do I have that they could possibly be jealous of?" She asked. She did have ONE thought, but there was NO WAY she was saying it out loud. Then again, she didn't have to: Haku answered her within seconds. "You're smart, funny, clever, kind, brave, and pretty. What do they NOT have to be jealous of?" Chihiro blushed at Haku's answer, but she still replied: "They have loads of friends." "So do you." was Haku's reply. That IS true, Chihiro thought, and was about to change the subject when something unexpected for them both popped out of Chihiro's mouth: "Some of them have someone who loves them." Haku froze. Whattosaywhattosaywhattosay? Chihiro mental kicked herself. You IDIOT!!!, she thought. Now Haku thinks you're pathetic. But Haku quietly said one sentence that Chihiro wasn't expecting: "So do you."

    To fanfiction

    I do not mean to critize and to all who have noot seen Spirted Away but are going to you might want to stop reading this because i am about to give away the ending here.
    Now back to what i was saying I do not mean ti critize but your story can't quite follow the movie there was a few minor .mess ups such as Haku he wasn't a moon spirt he was a river spirt or he used to be his river was destroyed i can't quite remember how then with your actual plot chiro and her parents had left thier home to tavel to thier new house she was going to go to a new school and stuff they got lost and ended up in the spirt world wich they left in the end. All in all i admit your story brought quite a big smile on my face because i loved your actaul story and how Haku and Chiro got to see each other again but i just thought i would point out those few minor mistakes.

    I Also Recommend:

    Unreliable, much better sources for information.

    I checked this book out to aid me in a research paper and found that some of the information is incorrect. Dates did not match up with my other sources (which were all consistent with each other) and in describing the process of cel art, Cavallaro contradicts herself and it is very hard to understand. I think with more time and better research this could've been an excellent work, but it is too poorly-edited to be taken seriously.

    The book I have recommended was written by Miyazaki himself and I feel would be a much more worthy read.
