Last night I received my first Netflix DVD. It was Ponyo. What a most interesting and fun movie. It was so entertaining, and the art was outstanding.
If you have not seen it, it is the story of a boy who finds a “goldfish” that he names Ponyo. We come to find she is magic, and she wants to become a real girl since she loves the boy.
It is a standard fairy tale type movie, but the art is far superior to most of the animated art we get in the US. It is no wonder why Disney backed the movie for a US release.
There are so many levels of animation at times. We see the kids at the surface of the water, looking down on them, we get layers of fish and the ground below.
Definitely a five star movie. This would be a good movie to show to people who don’t think they like Anime. I bet this will change their mind. 😉
What do you think?
