Hello all! Its been far too long since my last post! But I am determined to start writing more and expressing my Ghibli opinions (and other musings) to the world.

Studio Ghibli, in 1992 announced that they were bringing out yet another stunning film, by the name of “Porco Rosso”. Unlike many of Miyazaki’s films, the protagonist was a male, and also not human. But instead the head of a pig, the heart of a man. The film is set in Italy after World War […]
