We all know that Miyazaki always produces amazing movies like Spirited Away, or even Howl's Moving Castle, but you might be missing one of the cutest ones out there (Yes, even cuter than My Neighbor Totoro). What you're missing is the movie Ponyo. Here are 5 reasons why you should watch this amazing movie!
Yes, I know it sounds weird, but Ponyo is one of those movies you have to watch strictly because it's absolutely adorable. The entire movie just makes you go "Awwww" and overall the cuteness of the dialogue is wonderful as well.
The cast of Ponyo really isn't that large, but every character has a good reason to be there and there are not many extras to worry about. Ponyo herself is the most entertaining character to watch the entire time because she doesn't really know what she's doing half the time!
The entire story unfolds near the ocean and overall it has a watery theme. What's really nice about that is that you can almost feel like you're there watching everything unfold with your aviators and swim trunks on.
The story of this Miyazaki film is really easy to follow (unlike some Miyazaki films) and keeps you wondering what's going to happen next. Without any spoilers for the film I'll tell you that it's dramatic, hilarious, adorable, heart-wrenching, and full of love, All wonderful elements to have in a story.
As with every Miyazaki movie, Ponyo has absolutely beautiful scenes from the ocean to the foreground/background of every shot. Every scene takes your breath away with how beautifully done the artwork is, and not only that but the fact that the characters are beautifully drawn as well to match the backgrounds.
Ponyo is one of the cutest Miyazaki films to date, but also has a wonderfully enriching story full of great characters to boot! Without a doubt it will be on top lists for most people who watch it, and hopefully you'll like it too.
