    What I don’t like about the English translation of this film is that they made so many lines weirdly and to me unnecessarily specific and explanatory which erased so many rooms to interpret.
    One of the examples I cannot stand is where Moro tells Ashitaka about San’s past. In English she was literally thrown away by her parents when Moro literally caught them destroying her forest. But in the original version, we don’t know who did it – to me it even sounds like she was offered as a courtesy to the god from the community she was born in, as part of their plan. By mentioning ‘parents’, we cannot see anything other than ‘horrible individuals’ while it should supposed to be the whole social structure which abandoned her.
    At the same scene, Moro says ‘how dare you speak to a god like that’ and I hate this translation. In the original, she says ‘how do you think you can heal the sadness my daughter has been carrying’. She is angry because she loves her daughter and this is a test for Ashitaka if he is worthy. She wouldn’t get pissed off as a mighty god just because a boy was rude.

    Then people call these animals gods because of translation.

    The original word is "kami" which doesn’t really mean God or deity – more like a powerful spirit.

    There’s no accurate translation for Kami, so they choose god.

    But Kami have much more in common with nature spirits from folklore than with pagan gods for example.

    Yea, highly recommend you to watch animations like One Piece, Naruto or Damon Slayers which even elementary school kids can easily understand.
    Or just major anthropology at university and graduate cum laude.

    this film is not about which side we want to choose. Like it or not, we all are humans living upon what Eboshi has done. the question is, that if we can be like Ashitaka and try to save the children like San.

    On Lady eboshi
    She was threatened to get the head of forest spirit in exchange for more guns. She was an expert in shooting, probably the best.
    She shot the bore in the beginning of the movie, she shot princess mononoke’s mother. The only time she did not raise the gun was when princess mononoke entered the village to try to kill her. Maybe because she thought mononoke was surrounded and posed of no threat.
    Finally she shot the forest spirit. In the end, she lost her arm, which means she would never shoot again.

    The mentions of Ashitaka’s ethnic and cultural origins too because he came from real indigenous groups that were wiped out in feudal Japan, and it’s rare to see any mention of indigenous groups in Japan in films.

    What I never understood about this movie, was why did they banish Ashitaka completly? What if he’d found a way to break the curse, they wouldn’t want him back?

    You wouldn’t kill to save yourself? You kill everytime you eat. Anything. Plant or animal. You are a killer. And that’s perfectly okay and natural. You need to reevaluate your view on the universe and your place in it. The truth will bring you joy.

    I have always wached this movie in japanese with subs, and never heard the dubbed actors. Pretty cool to hear Billy Bob Thornton and Jada Pinket Smith on the voiceover. And agent Scully herself as Moro? Did the movie justice.

    The animal gods speak with human voices, but their personalities and behaviors fit what they are: animals. Moro is a wolf, so when she tells Ashitaka he should just jump and end it all, she’s being like a wolf: savage and vicious. Nago and Okkoto were boar gods and were both stubborn and proud, even when they were going to lose. And each of these god’s followers likewise followed their personalities: savage and vicious, stubborn and headstrong. The animal-gods speak but are, in their truest essence, animals. Likewise, it’s the human characters who are weak (comparatively), but use intelligence and reason, and also build tools out of the materials around them.

    Thanks for sharing your reaction video 😃
    It’s good opportunity for me to study English . I have enjoyed your videos repeatedly for 1 years and at last I became a human who can almost understand what you said by just watching your videos 😳
    I don’t know that my sentence is right grammatically or not but I just want to express my gratitude and I hope keep going 😁
    By the way , ghibli has released a lot of interesting films . Each film has thought-provoking massage . I recommend enjoying other ghibli films 😃 anyway thanks !

    It’s said that "KODAMA" which appeared on the last scene is back "TOTORO".
    Hayao Miyazaki liked and adopted an idea of his staff. (These sentences were made with a translation site.)

    Probably the most morally complex films from Ghibli. The only really villainous character is the mercenary Jigo and everyone else has understandable motives and morals, who are none the less brought into conflict with others who have opposing goals.

    i’ve always had a mindset that some ghibli films are better in the japanese dub, while some are in the english – its strange seeing this one in english for once but its super cool to see the differences in voice acting <3

    "Princess Mononoke" (1999) is merely a remake of the movie "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" (1985) and it isn’t even an improvement in my thinking.

    4) Perfect Blue (1999) – Japanese
    5) Your Name (2016) – Japanese

    7) When Marnie was There (2015) – Japanese
    #8) Robin Hood (1973) – American
    9) Tokyo Godfathers (2004) Japanese
    10) Only Yesterday (2016, originally 1991) – Japanese
    11) Millennium Actress (2003) – Japanese
    12) The Wind Rises (2013) – Japanese
    13) The Girl who Leapt through Time (2008) -Japanese
    14) The Fox and the Hound (1981) – American
    15) Shrek (2001) – American
    16) The Star (2017) – American
    17) Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (1964) – American

    It’s interesting that it would be surprising that women are disrespected in brothels. Respectable men aren’t going to be the ones buying sex from women so of course they’ll run into the worst sorts of men imaginable.

    Amazing fact it will blow you mind the girl named kaya at the start of the movie is actually ashikata fiance who gave him the locket. Also it is completely confirmed that she was pregnant with his kid. And his descendent from her passed down his legend. The movie name was first supposed to be legend of ashikata. That is why he has more screen time then monoke. You can even check the wiki fandom of girl name kaya it is real. The japanese women hated his character for him being a cheater. He was shown as brother to her for the western audience.

    All our product including all items behind you both, are from the forest.

    Christmas tree, sure.
    The number of trees chopped down every year x number of houses that celebrate Christmas.
    Did we really need to chop trees down to celebrate Christmas?
    From the beginning of Christmas?

    We all polute.
    As long our way of living or conducting business depends on "Demand & Supply" model, we cant stop killing own only planet.
