The Wind Rises by rtil The Wind Rises by rtil
if you currently live in the United States and are breathing, please go see this movie in theaters now before it is too late. it may be your last chance to see a film directed by Hayao Miyazaki on the big screen.

and a hearty "fuck you" to the joke of an academy for snuffing this film for best animated feature in favor of Disney's "Frozen". not that Frozen is a bad movie, but it's forgettable at best compared to TWR.

The Wind Rises by rtil is a fantastic tribute piece that is beautifully drawn and evokes a feeling of joy. ( Suggested by Ginryuzaki and Featured by Ry-Spirit )

I saw this on the big screen with my friend when I visited her in Australia and I'm so glad I was able to do so. X3 It was a great piece, and though it's not my favourite, I'm disappointed as well that Frozen got all the attention instead of this wonderful film. B/ I admit, The Wind Rises wasn't my favourite Miyazaki film, but it was still amazing. I think this was a great film for him to retire with. :) 

Anywaysss! This piece is beautiful! I love how you've made all the paper air plane models that Jiro designed are used as he reaches for Naoko's hand. The pastel colours are perfect, for this dream scene for Jiro. It's absolutely perfect.

I agree! Frozen was nice and all but this was a masterpiece! The animation! The story! The romance! The characters!
