"Master animator Miyazaki Hayao (67) spoke this week for the first time about his latest movie "Gake no Ue no Ponyo" (Ponyo on the Cliff), due for release in July. He described the story as "Hans Christian Anderson's tale of the Little Mermaid, transposed to modern Japan. Without the Christian subtext, it's a story of young children's love and adventure." Ponyo, the heroine of the title, is a fish child with a stubborn wish to live with the 5-year-old human boy Sosuke. Inspiration for the movie came in 2004, when Miyazaki took his Studio Ghibli staff on a company holiday to a small town on the shores of the Seto Inland Sea."

continued...
"Captivated by the ocean and the town, he later spent two months there alone researching and sketching. The name Sosuke came from a Natsume Soseki novel he read during that time. Visually, he described the "small seaside town and the house on the cliff; just a few people; the ocean, like a living creature; a world where magic appears naturally." Sousuke's nursery is located next to an old people's home, and producer Suzuki Toshio (59) described the movie as appealing to both the young and the elderly. "It's a movie that can help us face these times of neurosis and anxiety." The animation is in a freehand style, without the computer graphics of Miyazaki's recent works."

LOOK AT THIS PLACE, ISN'T IT GREAT?

Miyazakis storytelling is awesome, but man I cant stand his character designs
>>
Heard about this last year, that his newest movie was to be done 'old-school'.
>>
Miyazaki is PIG DISGUSTING. Let Ghilbi animate stuff for themselves more, fucker!
>>
>>10064704
i respect your opinion.
>I cant stand his character designs
wait what?

Picture made me think

FISH BLOWJOB
WOO WOO

Awesome.

>>10064704
not KAWAII enough for you?

>>10064739
No.

LOL NO.

This movie is the shitty product of some NHK big wig telling Miyazaki in an interview, "You'll never make another character nearly as iconic as Totoro" and Miyazaki got pissed, said "STFU" and decided to make this movie.

The whole intent is to look iconic, in which it'll fail miserably.

Miyazaki should have stopped at Spirited Away.

ASSUMPTIONS DON'T NEED TO BE POSTED

Hans Christian Anderson + Miyazaki Hayao = EPIC
>>
Miyazaki has always been overrated. This movie will be no different. Really, we have come to expect sub-par when we hear the name Ghibli, haven't we?
>>
>>10064871

..no
>>
>>10064871
HUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRR
>>
>>10064871
All I expect from Ghibli, is a good movie.
>>
>>10064704
You know, strangely enough, I agree with this. Miyazaki's character designs seem bland and samey, he never uses a different face for his main characters, and all his girl characters have the same personality.
>>
>>10064906

>>10064865

Except that Hans Christian Anderson is much bigger than Miyazaki

You've got to be kidding me.
>>
>>10064950
I expect that more people would have heard of Miyazaki than Hans Christian Anderson at least.
>>
>>10064610
that fish-child looks fucking creepy.
>>
>>10064999
Because no one's ever heard of The Little Mermaid, The Emperor's New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, The Princess and the Pea, and Thumbelina.
>>
I'm certain everyone I know know Miyazaki, but I'm not at all sure some people would know Hans Christian Andersen. Some of his stories might be familiar, but the guy itself is a bit of a nobody.
>>
>>10065101
...I thought that was Disney, not Andersen?
>>
>>10065146

His name, as well as his stories, is pretty well known in America.

Just die already.

>Seto Inland Sea.

SHARK FUJISHIRO!?!?!?!
>>
>>10065146

If you want to split hairs like that, fine, I'm sure not many people are familiar with the little details of Hans Christian Andersen's life, like a *real* celebrity ala Miyazaki. But the man's work is #2 only to the Bible (which admittedly probably doesn't impress purveyors of 4chan).

Miyazaki, for the time being, is only a flash in the pan compared to Andersen.

That ain't a creepy fish-child. THIS is a creepy fish-child.

Stories about fish people = attempt at being iconic?
Shit, wish I wrote a fish-people story.

>>10065146
What kind of retards do you know? Jeeze.
