It's late and I'm feeling tired, so I'm copping out and answering in English.
Yes, I've seen it and it's one of my favourites. I've been buying the Studio Ghibli films as they're released on blu-ray in the UK but so far Spirited Away
isn't one of them. The next one will be コクリコ坂から (From up on Poppy Hill
), which is due out in a couple of weeks.
My favourite Studio Ghibli film is 耳をすませば (Whisper of the Heart
), which was written by Miyazaki-san but directed by Yoshifumi Kondou. It's just lovely.
And if you haven't seen it, you are sure to be surprised by the opening theme!
Together? That'll mean a long trip for one of us!
But I am
keen to see it...
Trivia time! 風立ちぬ breaks with a long-established custom at Studio Ghibli. 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).
