We’re in the age of the streaming wars , however, and the impossible is possible...for the right amount .

HBO has just announced that in a landmark...

Miyazaki rechaza hacer una película de Hollywood de Nausicaä del Valle del Viento, el clásico de Ghibli

Nausicaä en el Valle del Viento es una de las películas más míticas de Hayao Miyazaki , por lo que desde hace mucho tiempo Hollywood parece estar persiguiendo al director para que acepte una adaptación occidental para la gran pantalla. Miyazaki finalmente ha rechazado sus propuestas, aunque sí ha aceptado que Nausicaä se convierta en una obra de teatro.

The Very Hollywood Reason You Might Not Know Neil Gaiman Wrote Princess Mononoke's English Dub

The Very Hollywood Reason You Might Not Know Neil Gaiman Wrote Princess Mononoke's English Dub

Princess Mononoke is one of Hayao Miyazaki’s finest, but its epic tale of gods can only be matched in fantasy for the weird story behind its arrival on Western shores in 2000. One notable part of that often forgotten history? Neil Gaiman wrote the English script...although it was pretty hard to find his credit.

There are many notable tales about Mononoke’s journey outside of Japan—and how,...

Toy Story 4 Bested at Chinese Box Office by...Spirited Away?

Sorry, Woody. Not even one of the most delightful existential crises of the year (so far) can compare with the might of a Miyazaki classic .

Variety reports that Toy Story 4 opened to box office record success this past weekend across the world. It took top nods for the largest three-day opening for an animated feature in the U.S. (where it pulled in $118 million, below Disney’s estimates),...

All of the Coolest Nerdy Things I Spotted in Tokyo, the Greatest City on Earth

I recently got back from a two-week vacation to Japan, spending most of my time in Tokyo with stops at Tokyo Disney and Osaka. It was seriously one of the best experiences of my life—mostly because my inner otaku was surrounded by some of the coolest, and cutest, things imaginable. Here are some of the neatest things I saw during my time in Tokyo, along with a few trendy things you might not...

Elon Musk es el responsable de compañías innovadoras como SpaceX y Tesla (no sin algunos problemas en esta última), pero en su agitada y ocupada agenda suele reservar algunos minutos para jugar un poco y, aparentemente, ver anime, lo que pareciera haberlo inspirado a su nueva posible misión: construir un mecha.

The Oft-Forgotten Architecture of Pop Culture Franchises

The Oft-Forgotten Architecture of Pop Culture Franchises

A memorable setting is a key component in any memorable story. This is especially true in popular science fiction and fantasy tales, where settings and locations have become as famous and crucial to their worlds as the characters in them.

This Video Explores the Shinto Spirituality of Hayao Miyazaki's Films

In a new video, the thinkers over at Wisecrack (who, channel name notwithstanding, put out some pretty clever videos on philosophy) consider the philosophy behind Miyazaki’s famed...

And now, the eponymous God Warrior is an amazing Figma figure!
