 Studio Ghibli's Howl's Moving Castle

I saw
Howl no Ugoku Shiro with my brother this week. It's now my favorite Ghibli film, even over Mimi o Sumaseba (aka Whisper of the Heart or If You Listen Closely) and Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbor Totoro)! Why? I think because I saw it pure Japanese and only Japanese--no influence from subtitles or dubbed voices--and was able to understand most of it myself. Also maybe because the story was not originally by Miyazaki..!

Go see it when it comes out in your country!

Hey.. Foodpocket.. ;)
I didn't know you understood japanese.. ;) cool..!!
 
Hey MrsT, well there's still a lot I can't catch but my Japanese comprehension has improved since I've been living in Japan. Being able to watch anime in Japanese was one of my old reasons for first wanting to learn Japanese(!) so I'm happy about that. =D
 
Hi foodpocket - thanks for visiting my site a while ago. How did the square egg turn out? Let me know yea?

Anyway, Howl's Castle came to Singapore and Husband & I caught it during the previews cos we are Studio Gimbli fans!! I must say it was a very enchanting tale, but I thought it was a bit confusing too... nevertheless, it certainly was a fantastical tale - very lovely!! Have you seen Spirited Away? I think that is my current favourite!!
 
Hi spottiswoode! I wanted to try the square egg in my mom's (or Popo's?) peanut butter egg sandwich but I haven't gotten to it yet!

Yes I love Spirited Away also, especially Kaonashi (No-face). I like all of Studio Ghibli's work honestly! The culture worked into the films is very interesting. =B

Seize the food, for Japan is time-service only! In other words, this blog is to preserve, share, and make the most of my six months left living in Japan. Yes, I am obsessed with food. Cheap food!

Life is short so I eat fast, lest it get cold or disappear. I'm currently teaching English in Japan for two years. I was born and raised in California, and will be returning there in Summer 2005. I was ovo-lacto-vegetarian for about seven years but decided to let it go during second year in Japan!
