Howl’s Moving Castle ハウルの動く城 Hauru no Ugoku Shiro

Uncategorized

One of the best Anime films I've seen in a while. Saw it today.. albeit with more than a couple of breaks..where i had to go take care of our new pup 😀 .

Its got one of the most original story and characters i've seen in recent years. all i know about the books is that they exist .. and are at least 3 of em.. maybe I'll read them some day (click here for the detailed wikipedia entry on the books)

Howl's Moving Castle starts with the little hat maker's shop.. where this girl called Sophie makes hats all day… later through a series of bizarre events she ends up getting cursed by a witch and turned into an old lady.. and the only way she can get the curse removed is by by going out and tracking down the infamous wizard named Howl who travels in a magical/mechanical/steampunk castle that well…

walks across the countryside on stilt like legs.. 😀
