I'm back.

Oh, hi, honey.

00:
02:08,760 -- 00:02:11,797

You got a plastic bag

What? They just give it to you.

16

00:
02:13,720 -- 00:02:15,631

[Mom] You could say

you don't need it.

17

00:
02:15,720 -- 00:02:16,994

Oh, pour me some of that too.

18

00:

I'll have it at the table.

21

00:
02:22,840 -- 00:02:25,957

- Thanks. Done with the computer?

- I'm printing out now.

22

00:
02:27,040 -- 00:02:29,395

Maybe we should buy another laptop.

[Groaning] Smells like

cigarettes in here.

24

00:
02:32,520 -- 00:02:35,318

Shizuku, you should have

gone to Kashiwazaki too.

25

00:
02:35,400 -- 00:02:37,868

No, I didn't want to.

Shiho wears me out.

26

00:
02:38,880 -- 00:02:40,791

Oh, by the way,

I have to work tomorrow.

27

00:
02:40,920 -- 00:02:43,878

- Do you want me to fix you a lunch?

- That's OK. I'll eat out.

28

00:
02:44,000 -- 00:02:47,879

The library's computerizing everything.

Everybody's going crazy at work.

29

00:
02:47,960 -- 00:02:51,635

I don't think they should, Dad.

Card catalogs are much better.

30

00:
02:51,760 -- 00:02:53,113

Yeah. I like 'em better too.

31

00:
02:53,240 -- 00:02:56,073

[Mom] I think you've got

a problem with your report.

32

00:
02:56,200 -- 00:02:58,839

- What's the problem?

- Isn't there a line missing here?

33

00:
02:58,920 -- 00:03:00,194

[Dad] You're right. Darn.

34

00:
03:00,280 -- 00:03:02,350

I'll have to print

the entire thing over.

35

00:
03:02,480 -- 00:03:05,438

[Mom] Can't I use the printer first?

My professor will kill me

36

00:
03:05,520 -- 00:03:07,636

if I don't have his paper

turned in tomorrow.

37

00:
03:07,760 -- 00:03:09,796

[Shizuku] Seiji Amasawa.

38

00:
03:09,920 -- 00:03:11,797

Here he is again.

39

00:
03:12,800 -- 00:03:15,837

Shizuku, time to put

the books away and go to bed.

40

00:
03:15,920 -- 00:03:17,478

OK, Dad. Good night.

41

00:
03:25,160 -- 00:03:28,197

Yep. I knew I had

seen that name before.

42

00:
03:30,200 -- 00:03:31,838

[Gasping] Here it is again.

43

00:
03:32,720 -- 00:03:33,709

And again.

44

00:
03:33,840 -- 00:03:36,070

Seiji Amasawa.

45

00:
03:36,160 -- 00:03:37,639

Seiji Amasawa.

46

00:
03:37,720 -- 00:03:40,280

Seiji Amasawa. That's amazing.

47

00:
03:40,360 -- 00:03:42,669

This guy checked out

all these books before I did.

48

00:
03:49,680 -- 00:03:51,511

Seiji Amasawa, huh?

49

00:
03:51,600 -- 00:03:53,192

What kind of person are you?

50

00:
03:53,320 -- 00:03:55,117

I wonder if we're anything alike.

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…
