The two main directors are Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, and the custom is that Hayao Miyazaki's films always have のin the title and Isao Takahata's films always have ほ in the title (which explains why the full title of Isao Takahata's film My Neighbours the Yamadas is actually ホーホケキョとなりの山田くん).


さすがマイケルさんだ!
よくしてるね。
This explains the super tearjerker "蛍の墓" is also Isao Takahata's work! I didn't know about it before!
I have been watching way TOO MANY Japanese films and TV series lately, and am feeling quite guilty as
I just don't have time to flip through all those books I bought when traveling in Japan. I'm just concerned
I won't be able to find another excuse to stop by at bookstores when I find myself in Japan again. :cry:
Ha-ha! You seem to spend more time on entertainment news than me. I don't feel so guilty now.

奈津子先生、
おかえりなさい。 :flower:
皆さんは奈津子さんが帰って来るのを待っていましたね。

普通は、日本人そんな長い休みを取られません。
だから、私はちょっと心配だったんだ。
復活してくれてよかったですね。
今日は夢みたいな、いい一日です。 :kokoro:

茶袋じゃなくてTeabag です
「茶袋」ってなんかおかしくて安いものみたいんです :cry:

From Up On Poppy Hill is a simple coming-of-age story set in Yokohama in 1963, the year before the Tokyo Olympic Games and the time when Japan was modernising and rapidly becoming the country it is today. I was seven in 1963; my earliest memories come from that time: the Beatles, the Space Race and the Tokyo Olympics, the first big event you could see on TV even though it was the other side of the world.

I mentioned a few days ago that one of my favourite films is Michael Powell's A Canterbury Tale, which was made in 1943. It has a very simple plot but really it is about history, our connection with the past and a the importance of way of life that was beginning to fade away. From Up On Poppy Hill also has a simple storyline and like A Canterbury Tale, its real power is in its lovingly detailed portrayal of a crucial time in history and of a way of life that is in danger of being forgotten.

The soundtrack includes Japanese pop songs of the time. To my surprise, I recognised one of them, straight away. It's fifty years since the last time I heard it. Take it from me, hearing a song again after fifty years is a powerfully nostalgic experience...

マイケルさん、
your description of the movie makes me want to watch it! :D
Many of Miyazaki films focus on humanities and world itself, and we often realise
some almost-forgotten important aspects in our lives.
It seems to be the fist film on my "want to watch" list :wink:

Ah, famous 上を向いて歩こう... :kokoro:
I love this song and we all are sorry about his (Kyu Sakamoto) tragedy... :cry:
