    Miyazaki Has retired from Animation

    http://www.flicksandbits.com/2013/09...rection/55836/

    Hope this hasn't been posted yet, Felt like I should share for those who have not heard the news yet. Hopefully he may release some art books or personal small animations, a substantial loss for the Asian animation scene.

    Whenever somebody creative announces their retirement, I have a hard time taking it seriously. If they're doing what they love they might not care for retirement.
    I think he'll be creating awesomeness for years to come, but with a smaller involvement.

    Yeah. He said he was going to retire after Princess Mononoke, then came back to do Spirited Away. And I'm sure Studio Ghibli with continue to make high quality animated films for many years to come.

    There are plenty of great anime creators, but Miyazaki is the most important. He has pull with Disney and that means distribution. The voice actors are 1st rate. The translation is handled by professional writers too.
    Miyazaki also hates Japanese voice actors for all the right reasons. That would explain why his work translates so smoothly.
    I really don't know if his western releases were a financial success though. Anime still confuses 75% of the human population.

    I am interested in what you mean by this. Could you explain? I've got my own hunches, but...

    Edit: found the relevant article, which was exactly what I was thinking.

    Back on topic, though, I'm really hoping this isn't his last film, and that his next works are more fantastical, like they used to be...

    While I may not be a fan of his films; Miyazaki is still an adept draftsman and came up with his own original ideas for the most part.
