Miyazaki Retires, Again

  1. So I’m not the only one who’s taking this with a pinch of salt then! It’s just, Miyazaki is one of those creative types for whom storytelling and making art are integral to who they are…the guy will continue to work as long as he’s capable of holding a pen.

    It’ll be a shame to think we won’t see any more of his movies and I’m sure the corporate side will be feeling unhappy about their number one employee calling it a day, but honestly? The man’s made some amazing things and brought joy to millions. He deserves a rest…assuming he truly wants to rest at all.
