Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki 終わらない人 宮崎駿 (Owaranai Hito Miyazaki Hayao) is a documentary about Hayao Miyazaki and his never-ending work ethic directed by Kaku Arakawa.
I was able to watch a screening of the movie at Anime NYC. Hayao Miyazaki has won many awards for his films because of his love and dedication to his work. He is an extraordinary filmmaker, animator, screenwriter, and manga artist. He is to me one of Japan’s greatest animation director’s of all time. It was an interesting documentary and even more amazing watching him battling with himself for coming out of retirement.
This has been so long overdue that we’ve literally waited 14 years for part 2 to come out and it was worth the wait. Now before I get into this if you plan on seeing the movie anytime soon, if you have a history of epilepsy or light-induced seizures be aware that this movie does have a few scenes that have intense strobe lights and for minutes at a time. I wasn’t aware of this and I don’t have a history of epilepsy or light-induced seizures but I am prone to getting really bad migraines when exposed to intense flashing lights.
This is the last day of AnimeNEXT and it’s really been a blast we have so much content to push out that we hope you guys think about coming out to Atlantic City for next year’s AnimeNEXT. This weekend has been a never-ending fun filled con full of cosplayers, events, and games. I’ve said this before there is so much space the elbow room is so amazing and AnimeNEXT always has something going on so finding things to do is an easy part but this year felt like there were so many choices that picking where to go will be the hardest part.
Who’s the best anime director(s)? Is a question that often pops up in conversation. And while these answers vary from person to person, They are often biased. Think about it? Can you actually rate or rank creativity? There is some clear distinction between someone who is lacking vs someone who produces a lot but other than that. There really isn’t a way to do so.
For me personally, I prefer asking questions like. What are your Top 5? Or which (blank) has influenced you the most. These questions are more personal. People are less likely to try and disbute this.
So Liz, who are some of your favorite directors in the anime industry?
