The thought-provoking, aesthetically pleasing animated films of Hayao Miyazaki attract audiences well beyond the director’s native Japan. Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away were critically acclaimed upon U.S. release, and the earlier My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service have found popularity with Americans on DVD. This critical study of Miyazaki’s work begins with an analysis of the visual conventions of manga, Japanese comic books, and animé; an overview of Japanese animated films; and a consideration of the techniques deployed by both traditional cel and computer animation. This section also details Miyazaki’s early forays into comic books and animation, and his output prior to his founding of Studio Ghibli. Part Two concentrates on the Studio Ghibli era, outlining the company’s development and analyzing the director’s productions between 1984 and 2004, including Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro and his newest film, Howl’s Moving Castle. The second section also discusses other productions involving Studio Ghibli, including Grave of the Fireflies and The Cat Returns. Appendices supply additional information about Studio Ghibli’s merchandise production, Miyazaki’s global fan base, and the output of other Ghibli directors.

Once a favorite of mainly art house audiences, Hayao Miyazaki's films have enjoyed increasing exposure in the West since his Spirited Away won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2003. The award signaled a turning point for Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli, bringing his films prominence in the media and driving their distribution in multiple formats. This book explores the closing decade of Miyazaki's career (2004-2013), providing a close study of six feature films to which he contributed, including three he directed (Howl's Moving Castle, Ponyo and The Wind Rises). Seven short films created for exclusive screening at Tokyo's Ghibli Museum are also covered, four of which were directed by Miyazaki.

In ihrem humorvollen High-Fantasy-Roman erzählt die preisgekrönte britische Autorin Diana Wynne Jones, wie sich eine magische Welt als lukrative Geschäftsidee entpuppt. Ausnahmslos alle – die Zauberer, Soldaten, Bauern, Drachen und Elfen – haben die Nase voll von Mr. Chesneys „Pilgerfahrten“. Jahr für Jahr fallen Touristengruppen aus der benachbarten Welt ein, um ein klassisches Fantasy-Abenteuer zu erleben – mit allem, was dazu gehört: bösen Magierinnen, gefährlichen Drachen und dem furchteinflößenden Dunklen Fürsten. Stets werden andere Bewohner des Reiches dazu auserwählt, diese Rollen zu übernehmen. Aber dieses Jahr reicht es den Leuten. Mr. Chesney mag einen mächtigen Dämon an seiner Seite haben, doch ein Orakel weiß Rat. Nun ist es an Zauberer Derk und seiner Familie aus Menschen und Greifen, den Verwüstungen Einhalt zu gebieten und ihre Welt zu retten. „Niemand erzählt so magische Geschichten wie Diana Wynne Jones.“ Neil Gaiman

Unter den Dielen eines alten viktorianischen Landhauses leben die letzten Borger: Pod und Homily Clock und Arrietty, ihre vierzehnjährige Tochter.

Sie bestreiten ihren Lebensunterhalt durch das seit Generationen gelernte Borgen: Radiergummis, Stecknadeln, Garnröllchen – all die kleinen Dinge sind ihr Beutegut. Verbotenerweise freundet Arrietty sich mit einem Menschenjungen an. Als die Haushälterin sie schließlich entdeckt und Fallen aufstellt, müssen die Clocks fliehen ... Mary Norton beschreibt ihre Helden liebevoll und ironisch– sie sind Menschen wie wir, nur viel kleiner. Mit diesem Perspektivwechsel hat Mary Norton ein Meisterwerk voller Poesie und Atmosphäre geschaffen. Die atemberaubend schönen Bilder von Emilia Dziubak fangen den Zauber dieses Kinderbuchklassikers ein und machen ihn zu einem Augenschmaus für Jung und Alt.
