‘Spirited Away’ the animated feature film that launched the studio into cult film success, is one of the first non-English language films to win an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, grossing worldwide at RM877 million.
Miyazaki’s last movie title before retirement ‘The Wind Rises’ (风起了) has already been nominated for an Oscar and has reaped over RM357 million since its debut in the international theatres.

The Wind Rises’ is Miyazaki’s swan song to Studio Ghibli and in true Ghibli fashion features the quintessential 2D animation that fans have come to associate with the studio.
The movie features the story of Jiro Horikoshi, a simple Japanese aircraft engineer whose dream is to build beautiful aircrafts but eventually he gets caught in the struggles of heartbreak and war. Not only that, his love story was really touching and romantic.
The Wind Rises’ DVD and merchandises will be available at AniManGaki 2014, where Nozomi, the exclusive distributor for Studio Ghibli in Malaysia will be commemorating the last 29 years of the studio’s success. AniManGaki is a fan fest for all things anime. Held from the 9th to the 10th of August 2014 at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre from 10am to 6pm. Visitors could celebrate Japanese anime, manga, music and more with the Nozomi Group Animation.

Yupe sounds like a not to be missed annual event. But Sunway Pyramid Convention Center is just too far for me :(

Are you planning to go, Kylie?
