Purchased on Mighty Ape

Another very good written and illustrated anime loosely based on the life of Jiro Horikoshi who had a passion for aeroplanes and bringing the japanese into modern times of the era.

"Intriguing film , with an interesting subject."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It’s a different type of beast compared to the majority of other Ghibli films . It’s still highly enjoyable and entertaining , but it’s more grounded in actual historical events , and a topic highly personal to Miyazaki – his love of aircraft and flying machines ! Themes I can easily relate to ?

"A deeply moving film"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I recommend this movie highly. It has a very high tone, useful for forming a love of beauty and goodness in you and your children.


The Wind Rises is a 2013 Japanese Studio Ghibli animated historical drama film on DVD, written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki (Best Animated Feature, SPIRITED AWAY, 2002) comes a spellbinding movie beyond compare. Experience “perhaps the greatest animated film the cinema has ever seen” (David Ehrlich,

Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni. Nearsighted and unable to be a pilot, he becomes one of the world's most accomplished airplane designers, experiencing key historical events in an epic tale of love, perseverance and the challenges of living and making choices in a turbulent world. Bring home the film that has dazzled fans and critics around the globe.

Bursting off the screen with spectacular picture and sound and featuring fascinating bonus material, Miyazaki's final masterpiece, The Wind Rises, is breathtaking. From the Studio Ghibli Collection.
