My soul: Spirited Away

Hey all! I wasn’t even intending to write anything today but someone on twitter said he will write 2 posts if I wrote one, so why not. SuperDimension Neptune is good, must buy.

Original movie. Movie ran for 125min.

The storyline is pretty simple, yet powerful. The concept and setting brought a mysterious vibe which makes me unable to predict what the plot lines were. The introduction gave a massive plot twist already. The pacing is a little bit on the slow side. The comedy is pretty subtle. Character development can be pretty diverse. I wish for more depth. The climax is entertaining, the ending gave a serious bout of feels. Overall, the movie is probably the best 2 hours I spent in my life by far, this movie isn’t really serious, but it gave off a pretty dark and mysterious vibe. I enjoyed every single moment of it.

Animations by Ghibli. For a 2001 film, it looks extremely good, signature character design, colors all are nicely rendered. I love it.

Music is pretty decent. BGMs were nice.

Cast list is pretty decent. Hiiragi Rumi, Irino Miyu, Natsuki Mari, Kamiki Ryuunosuke. They did their job well.


Story: 9/10

Art: 8.5/10

Music: 8/10

VAs: 8.5/10

Highly recommended. Just watch to feel it.

  1. Love this movie. It was the first anime I watched, that I realised was anime (first actually anime I watch was Pokemon, but I didn’t even know it was anime. I was too young). I agree, this movie is 2 hours very well spent. Weird thing is, there’s people who hate anime, but love this movie.


  2. Absolutely loved this film as well. Could not agree with you more on that. Great movie, with terrific animation, and a simple yet powerful storyline. Definitely deserved the Oscar it won. Great post 😀
