    I def did question the sudden love plot between them but at this point I am used to movies/shows auto making boys and girls as romance interest lol. But in the end, still a great movie! But I do still adore Spirited Away more 😀

    His name is pronounced Ah-she-talk-a. Princess Mononoke actually has a name a name, it’s San.

    In the opining the wise woman says „it will give you great pain and it will kill you“. And Lateran „from now on you are dead to us.“ if that’s not a tragic way to start a movie. Also his fiancé… it’s heartbreaking.

    I watched Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke on a Cartoon Network special and up until then the only anime I was familiar with were shows like Digimon and Pokémon. I became a lot more interested in tue anime world when I saw those two features.

    Shes better as not being the enfocer between peace and humans in my opinion. While on the wolf side she becomes now a product of the hate between the humans and the forest between something that is both ugly and beautiful at the same time. Having both the good and bad residing within her from both parties. While most often in the show the byproduct of this hate is shown in the embodiment of the demons which is great by having something more grounded like princess Mononoke hits alot closer to home then lets say demonic boar charging through a forest.

    I liked the romantic aspect of the story but I guess that’s just because I like romantic stories in general. The scene where he called her beautiful kinda stuck out to me too, because of her reaction. Never in my life have I seen a girl so horrified of being paid a compliment!

    Personal my fav studio ghibli film was "spirited away" but after finishing princess mononoke I really like this one the most it feels so human and real to watch which is awesome since mythology within the films teaches so many lessons it was cool

    OK, This is kinda old now, but I have to mention a couple things:

    1) Miyazaki doesn’t really ‘write’ his movies. He has an idea for them, he gets some ideas and starts storyboarding, and then they start making the movie once they’ve got enough solid scenes to work with. The story is still being hammered out long after the film is being animated. It’s why there are things that sometimes just kinda get dropped, or why they’ll just introduce some weird new element halfway through the movie. They have a general concept of a movie, but they don’t have all the details worked out until the thing is getting made.

    2) You mention that Miyazaki is a workaholic, and while that’s very common in Japan, he’s one of the worst slave-drivers in the industry. He’s legendary, but he’s a raging cunt of a director. He demands perfection, the animators are made to basically live at the studio 24 hours a day, etc. I mean, it’s not necessarily a terrible experience, as they treat it like familial relationship where they take turns cooking food, doing cleaning chores, going shopping for the things they all need, etc, but the guy is a real hard-ass and demands perfection from his artists. There was a woman who was moving on from animation and was going to move into the country and settle down with her family and maybe do some personal art projects and stuff, so she was leaving the studio toward the end of production on either this film or Spirited Away. I forget the exact story, but basically they wanted to give her a memento of her time there, so they drew her a picture of Ghibli characters or something, or they took one of her production drawings… and they all signed it. They gave it to Miyazaki to sign it, but he also included correction notes for the drawing. I want to say that it was one of her own drawings they used. She said it was the perfect memento of working at Ghibli.

    I think Ashitaka and SAN’s relationship as what movie quotes “seeing eyes un clouded” like has been said because of being raised by wolves people saw her as an animal and animals fighting human saw her as a beast. Ashitaka was only one who saw her “humanity and beauty” and though she had hatred was the only human voice for the forest’s defense. Ashitaka saw who she was and even she still can’t live with human she still sees beauty and humanity through Ashitaka.

    And I feel like Ashitaka’s curse was able to let him see each side. While hatred would not kill them automatically it would for him. Because he could hold it back and see things “with eye unclouded and the able to turning the head understanding pain everyone would go through.

    Ashitaka saved Princess Mononoke ONLY because she’s beautiful. If PM were ugly or even doesnt exist then this whole story wouldn’t happened at all lol.

    I just realized that San is identical to Mowgli from Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.

    October 31, 2022 @ 7:35 am

    Remember IT is not her name. The title should be Princess of Mononoke

    Idky nobody recognizes that, for as understandable as the actions of the humans, their actions will quite literally lead to the death of nature and humans (who are a part of nature) alongside it. What’s ambiguous isn’t whether the actions of the humans are right, they aren’t; the ambiguity is how to solve the problems plaguing both the forest and the human society.

    I don’t really like this movie, it feels kind of empty to me. Ashitaka and the princess are plane characters, any commentary about the relationship between nature and humans feels confusing considering all the fantasy elements of the story and… I don’t know, I failed to connect with the characters in general and whatever the story was trying to say.

    Even so, Kodamas are my favorite thing in this movie. That and the part when one of the wolves bites Ashitaka’s head, that’s high quality humor right there.

    They don’t want a respectable female protagonist. It’s either a male protagonist, or a hypersexualized female protagonist. Can’t believe people still haven’t seen this yet.

    One major complaint with your review: you said that you’d prefer it if Princess Mononoke was the mid point even though her story sides her with the animals solidly. Just because by birth she’s a human doesn’t mean she’ll side with them by any means.
