Anoko to haneru to kokoro mo odoruyo paku-paku chu-gyu

Ponyo came out yesterday, but guess who saw it on Monday? xD There are perks to being friends with this guy. As everyone’s saying, it’s not my favorite Miyazaki movie, but it is right up there with Studio Ghibli’s others in quality and enjoyment. I love love LOVE the two main characters, Sosuke and Ponyo, and all of their interactions, but the rest of the movie was just (well-drawn) fluff for me.
Oh. And when you hear the first bars of the credit rock song, GET OUT OF THERE.

On the Miyazaki thread, take a look at these two gorgeous pieces Terry Blas gave me last week! I was in shock then, and I’m still reeling a bit now. :) Terry is a watercolor and character design master. He did the painting of Sophie a while ago, but he did the painting of Haku in an afternoon!!! MAN. I am still searching for proof that he’s not an artbot from the future. Wait…Robopocalypse…yes, it all makes sense…

Also, I’m over on Nico’s blog again. (A girl could get used to this! :P ) Written by Jamie, illustrated by Nico:


  • I’m not sure how that strip works in French. The pun in the punchline appears to be swallowed up in the translation.

  • Aw, you’re right. Puns, they are not inter-language friendly.

  • At least you’re still cute en Francais. ;)
