Hi, Porco, tell me your story.

Next time two of us are alone.

That Mr. America is funny.

As soon as he sees me...

Will you marry me?

So I told him:
I married three pilots,

first died in the war,

the second died in Atlantic Ocean,

and the last one died in Asia..

You got the news?

I got it today.

It's says the remains were found

in the forest of Bengal.

I have been waiting for three years.

My tears dried up long ago.

Good guys always die.

For my friend.

Marco, thank you for staying with me

all these years. You are the best friend.

The only thing I don't like

is that you don't want

to take that picture off.

Don't break it, you promised me.

That's only left picture

of Marco as a human

How can we break your curse?

That American is very talented...

I envy you.

I wish I would make money like you.

This is the payment for this month.

You've payed off the entire loan

for the airplane.

Let's see, how about buying some patriots bond

in devotion to our country?

I'll let the humans do that.

Welcome, Mr. Porco Rosso.

This is ready.

Give me 60 rounds of ammo as well.


This country is busy, isn't it?

Oh, yeah.

The government is probably going to change?

If so,

people like you will be outlaws.

Country and law

don't mean anything to a pig.

You're right, Mr. So goes for a mole.

Is it ok like usual?

We have a new supply of an incendiary bomb.

Hey, kid. I'm not going to war.

See you.


Excuse me, boss.

Could you tell me the difference

between a soldier and a bounty hunter?

Uhm... You're a scum

if you can't win in war.

You're useless and stupid

if you can't make a fortune.

I've never heard of an air pirate

who was deeply in debt.

We had nothing to barter with, Captain.

We couldn't even pay for paint.

There's ships up ahead!

Why do I have to stay

with such pathetic looking group?

It's due to the pig, the crimson pig.


Guys of 'Aiuto',

they don't even have money for paint.

Poor looking boys.

Well, we are finally complete.

Hey, is Mr. America around?

Yes, he is in the sun.

Juts like we told.

I sighted the target!

It's the Queen of Mediterranean!

Are we going to take on such a big ship?

That's why we prepared well.

Don't be afraid!

My engine is in trouble.

I'm going to back you up. You go first.

You are cunning!

Do as we agreed!

We share cost of repairs

and expenses when we loose, don't we?

You, stingy...

Of course we share them!

we need to share the bullets too?

Altak is the only right candidate

to speak out here!

We've just discussed this issue.

You cunning b*tch!

If we can't share that, I will quit...

Shut up! Calm down!

Attention please, attention please.

Air pirates are attacking this ship,

Hayao Miyazaki

Hayao Miyazaki (宮崎 駿, Miyazaki Hayao, born January 5, 1941) is a Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter, animator, author, and manga artist. A co-founder of Studio Ghibli, a film and animation studio, he has attained international acclaim as a masterful storyteller and as a maker of anime feature films, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest animation directors. Born in Bunkyō Ward of Tokyo, Miyazaki expressed interest in manga and animation from an early age, and he joined Toei Animation in 1963. During his early years at Toei Animation he worked as an in-between artist and later collaborated with director Isao Takahata. Notable films to which Miyazaki contributed at Toei include Doggie March and Gulliver's Travels Beyond the Moon. He provided key animation to other films at Toei, such as Puss in Boots and Animal Treasure Island, before moving to A-Pro in 1971, where he co-directed Lupin the Third Part I alongside Takahata. After moving to Zuiyō Eizō (later known as Nippon Animation) in 1973, Miyazaki worked as an animator on World Masterpiece Theater, and directed the television series Future Boy Conan. He joined Telecom Animation Film/Tokyo Movie Shinsha in 1979 to direct his first feature films, The Castle of Cagliostro in 1979 and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind in 1984, as well as the television series Sherlock Hound. Miyazaki co-founded Studio Ghibli in 1985. He directed multiple films with Ghibli, including Castle in the Sky in 1986, My Neighbor Totoro in 1988, Kiki's Delivery Service in 1989, and Porco Rosso in 1992. The films were met with commercial and critical success in Japan. Miyazaki's film Princess Mononoke was the first animated film to win the Japan Academy Prize for Picture of the Year, and briefly became the highest-grossing film in Japan following its release in 1997; its distribution to the Western world greatly increased Ghibli's popularity and influence outside Japan. His 2001 film Spirited Away became the highest-grossing film in Japanese history, winning the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards and considered among the greatest films of the decade. Miyazaki's later films—Howl's Moving Castle, Ponyo, and The Wind Rises—also enjoyed critical and commercial success. Following the release of The Wind Rises, Miyazaki announced his retirement from feature films, though he returned to work on a new feature film in 2016. Miyazaki's works are characterized by the recurrence of themes such as humanity's relationship with nature and technology, the wholesomeness of natural and traditional patterns of living, the importance of art and craftsmanship, and the difficulty of maintaining a pacifist ethic in a violent world. The protagonists of his films are often strong girls or young women, and several of his films present morally ambiguous antagonists with redeeming qualities. Miyazaki's works have been highly praised and awarded; he was named a Person of Cultural Merit for outstanding cultural contributions in November 2012, and received the Academy Honorary Award for his impact on animation and cinema in November 2014. In 2002, American film critic Roger Ebert suggested that Miyazaki may be the best animation filmmaker in history, praising the depth and artistry of his films. more…
