New 'Ponyo' Trailer: Such Adorable Utter Madness

August 3, 2009


A new trailer for Ponyo has been released, and it's a good thing I know director Hayao Miyazaki is an animation genius, responsible for such greats as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, or this more-complete preview might have got me thinking the film--which centers on a fish-with-a-human-head becoming human, a giant woman under the sea, and water coming to life in the form of fish--was a tad insane. Actually, now that I described it, that's unquestionably insane. But, because it's a Miyazaki, it's probably also a charming masterpiece.

Japanese storytelling: still firmly rooted in confusing mythology batshit crazy concepts.
