Exploiting the tag surfer option here in WordPress, I came across tPonyo, another brilliant creation by Hayao Miyzaki, director of my favorite movies Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, Grave of the Fireflies, and Kiki’s Delivery Service. Again, the genuis Miyazaki-san shone brightly in this film; though I only watched the trailer; it was enough for me to surmise that this is a brilliant as his other movies.

To give in to my Miyazaki cravings, I’ve contracted an International Consultant based in Laos to get me a box Studio Ghibli collection. He was even kind enough to lend me his Akira Kurosawa collection. I hope to get them before Christmas! ^^ Perfect christmas gift!


The son of a sailor, 5-year old Sosuke lives a quiet life on an oceanside cliff with his mother Lisa. One fateful day, he finds a beautiful goldfish trapped in a bottle on the beach and upon rescuing her, names her Ponyo. But she is no ordinary goldfish. The daughter of a masterful wizard and a sea goddess, Ponyo uses her father’s magic to transform herself into a young girl and quickly falls in love with Sosuke, but the use of such powerful sorcery causes a dangerous imbalance in the world. As the moon steadily draws nearer to the earth and Ponyo’s father sends the ocean’s mighty waves to find his daughter, the two children embark on an adventure of a lifetime to save the world and fulfill Ponyo’s dreams of becoming human.
