Not an otaku, but just lingering passions

I welcome 2012 while watching “Whispers of the Heart”

Last night while the world was having the countdown to 2012 , i was watching “Whisper of the heart”. A simple love story about a girl and a boy. You may say Studio Ghilbli’s character are using a template but i think that’s the appeal of it. The characters are just there to facilitate the story because like all SG’s film, the emphasis is on the story. The story really isn’t anything special or anything but the flow of it. The development of the character and just generally the whole setting of the film was amazing. I also like how the background looks like it is watercolored but a bit static.

The music of almost every SG’s film are top notch as well. Same for this. A simple country road song sounds so tailored made for this anime. It fits the feel of it and it adds a further impact to the story. I love this screen a lot, although i’m not a musically incline person but i was singing along to the song when she was singing it. “country road, take me home.. to the place I belong~”.

I don’t think there is a need to say a lot about SG’s film. If you haven’t watched this film, i suggest you do. Unless you’re that kind that needs action then you wouldn’t find any here. But if you want to appreciate a story, watch this.

    Whisper of the Heart is quite possibly my very favorite anime film – really warm and really sweet. Great, great work.
