>yfw Anno wins an Oscar
Welcome to two years ago
You are YEARS late, jesus fuck.
Anno went to the auditions without even telling Miyazaki in advance and passed because he fit the character
I thought he won one for EoE.
>winning the role by auditions
What's the big deal.
Anno voiced Naota's cat in FLCL.
As expected of anon.
>Lucas & Spielberg on Tattooine set.jpg
In other words, he has tons of experience
>extremely minor role in a straight-to-video series by the studio you created
>leading role in a feature film by the most acclaimed director of all time
Pretty much the same thing.
There is nothing the master can't do.
As expected of Anno, the master.
I'm excited to watch this and hear him as a VA. I'm also probably going to give the dub a try because muh disney bucks and JGL
To be frank, Miyazaki usually uses regular actors for his movies rather than voice actors, because he feels this gives them a more realistic feel. Anno does have some experience as an actor, and choosing Anno's voice did give the movie a very realistic feeling in my opinion.
What did Anno ever play?
Dumbo the elephant?
When the hell are we going to get to see this movie by the way?

Perfectly logical progression.

please stop bullying anno
Alright, who voiced Miyazaki's last main character? In Ponyo?
I am most certain that was one of his first acting gigs as well, and no main characters before.
What is happening in this pic? Why is his hair combed? Why is his beard trimmed? Is he going to another audition?
Keep in mind these are people who see ads in shows and then obsessively point them out to everyone. Tools for the industry to use for every crossover possible.
The main character in Ponyo was a child.
Truly his greatest work.
And so is Anno.
Who the fuck cares? The last good Miyazaki movie was Nausucaa.
I went to a screening of the movie in Tokyo last July without knowing
>mfw I realized it was Anno halfway through the movie
I highly regret having bought juice that day.
That's the joke, pal
More like Nau-sucka, .
>Doubting the master
Clearly his greatest role was Ultraman, in Return of Ultraman.
>mfw the wind rises was more sleep inducing than hyouka
That's hard to believe. Is it more snorefest than Jin-Roh?
Your trolling is astoundingly bad, did you even watch the movie?
Yes I did with two friends,they really liked it and they even cried at the end,for some reason I was bored and it felt the movie was 3 hours long,maybe because of the shitty french dub...will rewatch whe BD is out
the soundtrack was awesome though
I thought Miyazaki hated Anno? Didn't he tell Anno to GTFO around about Laputa only to see Anno go out to make Nadia?
That was way back then. They've been cool if not best buds for at least ten years. Miyazaki let Anno direct that Nausicaa prequel short recently after all.
They're best friends http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-08-22/hayao-miyazaki-open-to-nausicaa-film-sequel-by-evangelion-anno
Apparently Miyazaki highly evaluates Anno since he worked for him on Nausica
Miyazaki and Anno are best pals. Ghibli and Gainax are literally right across the street from each other, and they both have been helping each other on various projects their entire lives. The two even take vacations together, as in >>101466550
But he's an amazing actor.
>Miyazaki let Anno direct that Nausicaa prequel short recently after all.
You mean that live action one? Anno himself actually commissioned Ghibli to make it- it was apparently also their first foray into live action film-making.
b-but miyazaki hates otakus and anno makes anime for otakus
Funky Forest was the shit. It was like a bizarre dream that you pleasantly remember
I don't know how Anno got himself such an attractive wife.
> Two out of three /a/nons liked it
> the third one had bad taste
Sounds like a good movie.
Probably because she supports his alternative lifestyle.
You mean he hates otaku that works in the anime industry and Anno is a fucking otaku.
So much for Miya's credibility.
She draws manga, so shared interests I guess?
A few years ago there was an Anno action figure released.
Stop being fucking retarded. Myazaki never said he hated the Otaku fans, he said he hated the Otaku ANIMATORS and writers. The whole statement was about them and not the fans
That's completely wrong.
Anno didn't even WANT to voice the character, but Miyazaki was very adamant in him doing it, so Anno gave in.
>Didn't he tell Anno to GTFO
He saw Anno's great potential, but knew his true power would only be revealed if he were set free. Like a true sensei, Miyazaki did what was best for his student.
Anno is only an otaku towards Ikuhara.
Or as he calls him, Iku-chan
He was just generating attention around himself. He does that every couple of years to keep people from forgetting him. He's also rescinded his retirement.
>He's also rescinded his retirement.
I wonder what everyone did with the opened champagnes when he did that.
>Anno is a fucking otaku.
Not sure where you get your information, here are Anno's official comments from the official site:
Suzuki Toshio invited him to take the audition, he took it and Miyazaki liked his performance and offered him the part, which he immediately accepted.
>Didn't he tell Anno to GTFO
No that never happened. It's some made up story you've heard. Miyazaki tried to steal Honneamise staff when making Laputa (by which I mean them that he asked them to work for him, nothing more malicious than that).
He's pulled this stunt SIX FUCKING TIMES. Anybody who hasn't gotten the hint deserves what they got.
He IS taking a break from feature-length films for the moment though.
>Anno voicing the main character in a Ghibli production
My Dick Rises (2013)
You can watch the behind the scenes stuff they showed on TV when the film was made on youtube. It was Miyazaki who proposed that Anno would do the role to Suzuki in a meeting.
So it was a keikaku. Not that I mind, seeing as how Anno was bretty gud.
But Anno hates the otakus also.
Then why does Rebuild pander to them so greatly?
