Some of the most beautiful animation I have ever seen.

In the past few years, I hear people saying how much they love Anime, how beautiful the animation and stories are. They almost say it with pride.

I always was a little wary of that pride. When one is proud of their like of a particular high-art form one could come across as pretentious. This pet peeve was put behind me when I saw the second anime film I have ever seen, “The Wind Rises”.

This is a gorgeous film. Every frame is a painting, each story inspiring.

Years ago I watched “Spirited Away” and didn’t like it at first. But the artistry and story have grown on me and I concede that the work of Studio Ghibli is totally worth the hype.
