    His work speaks to the soul in a way that is sadly rare in the entertainment industry of this day and age. I have all the Studio Ghibli films either on Bluray or DVD, and always enjoy re-watching them and appreciating something new that I had missed previously. In many ways this is what Disney films should be like in their appeal to people of all ages, but instead..well don't get me started lol

    Fortunately his son is there to carry the torch of studio ghibli, though his films haven't been as well received. Personally I think that critics are too harsh on him though, because naturally he is compared to his father, who without doubt is truly a master and unlikely to be surpassed anytime soon.

    I hope he continues to consult as a creative director lending his magic, but I don't think anyone will begrudge him of wanting to take it easy after such a successful career. He is 72 after all.

    • Disney doesn't deserve to be spoken of in the same sentence as Ghiblianimatedgif
