May Anniversary Giveaway Week #4
May is almost over! isn’t that crazy? Where has this year been going? This past week was fairly crazy. May is Birthday month for my family so we’ve been running around. Plus, I had to take my grandfather in to the ER. Plus, I’ve been having some computer troubles, so yeah, I haven’t been getting much done here, have I?
Our Week 3 prize winner has been officially notified (congrats raindrops1) and now its time to start the final giveaway of May before the grand prize. So what is up for grabs this week? The completely awesome Howl’s Moving Castle. This anime by Miyazaki ties with Spirited Away as being my favorite.
I can’t remember if I read the book first or watched the anime. In some respects, I liked the anime much better, which is actually quite odd. Normally I always prefer a book over a movie or cartoon adaptation.
One of the great things about Miyazaki’s work is the fact you get some awesome actors doing the voices. Sometimes with anime, the English voice actors aren’t all that impressive, but with Miyazki’s films, you get the cream of the crop…meaning essentially non-voice actors. Christian Bale lends his talent to the voice of Howl.
We have a young woman named Sophie who is transformed into an old lady and she goes on a quest which brings her into contact with the magician Howl. Again, it’s a great favorite of mine. To enter, just tell me what your favorite Hayao Miyazaki film is. If you don’t know his work, just tell me what your favorite anime movie is (not series, movie).
