What? It's not something weird, is it?

80

00:
06:24,600 -- 00:06:27,353

- Can you open the library, please?

- The library?

81

00:
06:27,480 -- 00:06:30,119

Can't you wait until school starts?

82

00:
06:30,200 -- 00:06:31,519

No. That's the point.

83

00:
06:31,640 -- 00:06:34,518

I decided I was gonna read

20 books over summer vacation,

84

00:
06:34,640 -- 00:06:37,108

and the city library

doesn't have the book I want.

85

00:
06:37,240 -- 00:06:38,309

It'll just be a second.

86

00:
06:38,440 -- 00:06:41,398

Twenty books? What about

your high school entrance exams?

87

00:
06:41,520 -- 00:06:43,829

Can't you even pretend

to be studying for them?

88

00:
06:43,960 -- 00:06:44,995

Uh, here it is.

89

00:
06:45,080 -- 00:06:47,753

Hurry up and bring it here.

90

00:
06:47,880 -- 00:06:51,475

Come on, give me your library card

and the checkout card from the book.

91

00:
06:51,600 -- 00:06:53,158

Here you go.

92

00:
06:54,320 -- 00:06:55,594

Hey, look at this.

93

00:
06:55,680 -- 00:06:58,148

No one's ever checked

this book out before.

94

00:
06:58,240 -- 00:06:59,878

No one? What do you know.

95

00:
06:59,960 -- 00:07:01,916

I finally beat Seiji Amasawa.

96

00:
07:05,920 -- 00:07:06,830

[Gasps]

97

00:
07:07,600 -- 00:07:11,513

Donated by... Amasawa?

98

00:
07:11,640 -- 00:07:15,519

No way! Do you have any idea

who this Amasawa person is?

99

00:
07:15,600 -- 00:07:18,114

Oh, now look,

you made me make a mistake.

100

00:
07:18,240 -- 00:07:20,435

Well, that guy's

probably the book's donor.

101

00:
07:20,560 -- 00:07:22,471

I don't know anyone from that long ago.

102

00:
07:22,600 -- 00:07:24,989

- Ask one of the older teachers.

- [Girl] Shizuku!

103

00:
07:25,080 -- 00:07:27,799

[Groaning] I should have known

you were going to do this.

104

00:
07:27,920 -- 00:07:30,388

You said to meet

outside the school, not inside.

105

00:
07:30,480 -- 00:07:34,029

I waited in the sun for 15 minutes. Do

you know how many freckles I have now?

106

00:
07:34,160 -- 00:07:36,276

- I'm sorry.

- Calm down, Yuko.

107

00:
07:36,400 -- 00:07:38,470

You take your freckles

way too seriously.

108

00:
07:38,600 -- 00:07:41,000

No, I don't!

It's a major problem for me.

109

00:
07:41,000 -- 00:07:43,560

Aren't either of you

concerned about your exams?

110

00:
07:43,680 -- 00:07:45,557

Now get out and go study.

111

00:
07:46,320 -- 00:07:47,878

I got it!

112

00:
07:48,840 -- 00:07:51,274

Here! [grunting] This way.

113

00:
07:51,800 -- 00:07:53,518

[Boy] Kick it harder than that.

114

00:
07:53,600 -- 00:07:56,239

I wrote some lyrics

for our graduation ceremony,

115

00:
07:56,360 -- 00:07:58,237

but I'm pretty sure that they stink.

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…
