After recent rumors of Studio Ghibli closing their animation department and the low box office numbers for When Marnie Was There, it was time to make an appreciation post for a company that has created true movie magic again and again. So, thank you, Studio Ghibli. Hopefully it isn’t good-bye just yet.Studio Ghibli is no longer producing animated films. So here’s to you, Ghibli, and everything you’ve given us.
Don’t know if the rumors are true or not, but either way, Studio Ghibli deserves appreciation. <3
Tony Zhou : “Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.”
Satoshi Kon is my favorite creator. I love so many, like Miyazaki, but… Just watch his work. Watch all of them. I will never be able to gush enough about Satoshi Kon, so do yourself a favor by watching some animation.
