Japanese Animated Movies

Today I will tell you why you should spend this cold weekend with your laptop watching Japaneese animated movies. 

First of all, these movies were created with a hand of a master. A master, who makes his characters with a soul. Can you imagine, how from a simple drawing they are becoming alive with their minds and emotions?

These characters are unique for each of us. They are teaching us many important things, and even if you are grown up person, you will learn something too. These characters teach you how to be brave, how to believe in yourself, how to understand what is it”to be yourself”. They are showing you, what is really important in life and what life by itself is about. Moreover, what is the most important, they will shut your eyes and turn on your imagination. They will guide you to another world, where you can create anything.

Imagination – it is not only about creativity and miracles, it is about being able to see a beauty in a grain of sand, being able to believe in something invisible and being able to see good in bad. This is something a real life lack of.

Here I have listed my favourite Japanese animated movies by directors, which will take your breath away with their characters, views, colours, details, music, emotions, thoughts and plots.

1. Hayao Miyazaki
(Studio Ghibli)

The Greatest man ever, who received many awards and who has the brightest imagination. Each story in his movies is different one from another. You need to watch them all to understand how cool this director is. His movies have unique stories, which are showing you how the real world and the magic world are living together. Incredible plots, wonderful fantasy and a beautiful picture.
In Hayao Miyazaki movies the music is created by another great man, musician Joe Hisaishi.
 This music is playing a lead role in the movies and you will not be able to forget it.

2. Makoto Shinkai

Makoto Shinkai is another great director. In his movies you will see a very detailed beautifully drawn picture. He is focusing on incredible views, there is also more silent moments to digest the plot and understand characters’ feelings. After watching his movies you will have thoughts in your mind about life, love, right/bad things. Real life is complicated and sometimes we don’t think that there might be another parallel world behind us.
