The Summer of Miyazaki has turned to fall and we discuss his penultimate work, Ponyo and this time around we’re joined by fellow Ghibli-fan, Sadie Hartmann. Where does Ponyo rank in the films of Miyazaki? It certainly an amazing artistic achievement but does the story hold up to his other work. Our answers may shock you! (Or they may not.)
Well, better late than never. Work and sickness once again conspire to make this Episode in the Summer of Miyazaki late and actually miss summer altogether. Nevertheless, we had a great time discussing the later Miyazaki film, Howl’s Moving Castle. This one seems to rank a little lower in some Ghibli fan’s estimations but what did Levi and Rosalyn think about it?
