Miyazaki is adorable, and also amazing

I just finished watching Howl's Moving Castle, a Hayao Miyazaki film. In case you don't know who that is, he is responsible for such movies as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. You just have no idea how amazing this movie is. I get so used to U.S. animation, which has gotten fairly simplistic in its use of line and coloring, and what isn't simple is done by computers. But then you watch something from Studio Ghibli and not only is art incredible, but the stories are so original and moving. And the best part is that no matter how many times you watch them, they just keep getting better.

I now own three of his movies... that only leaves 15 more!
