Is Howl's moving castle overrated? Everybody I know likes it, but I hate it. Messy storyline, poor pacing, undeveloped characters... The only decent thing about this anime is the quality of the animation.
Nobody force you to like it. And we can't change your mind either.
OMG i just asked for /a/'s opinion on this anime.
I solely liked it because Christian Bale did the dub.
And I watched it raw.
shit is shit
i liked buuut its about the only movie ive seen so far where i liked the Dub more than the Raw/sub
which is.. odd.
It's just not very good. Diana Wynne-Jones didn't like that Miyazaki had added gratuious crazy flying machines.
Better than Tales of Earthsea, but that's not saying much.
tl;dr -- there are no Ghibli movies since "The Cat Returns"
I love all Miyazaki but agreed, this one was shit.
what do you expect from a kiddie show. what? you thought it was an adult show? aiya.
heh i read the book its based on, it has WALES in it. WALES. my god. she can stfu ;p the flying machines were cool
Howl's Moving Bowels
billy fucking crystal
he stole the fucking movie
I liked the kid with the cape.
I was watching this again yesterday. I just sorta zoned out around the last twenty minutes or so of it, only paying attention again when the Deus Ex Machina (as portrayed by Crispin Freeman) appears and fixes everything. It's an okay movie, but parts of it are really pretty bad. Purdy though.
this is so true... i watched it in english first (i was watching it with less anime nut friends who resent subs) and he was just awesome... then i watched it in jap and the guy voicing the fire demon was just... not even in the same universe of awesomeness...
also preferred english howl and sofie but not to the same degree...
