In a land far away where demons and gods exist, one man tears across the land on his trusty elk to restore peace.
Along with our Weekly Hornet news report that is filled with juicy nectar, this week we venture out of the norm as we watch and review our FIRST anime film picked by Jose, the 1997 film Princess Mononoke.
After being attacked and injured by a demon Ashitaka goes on a quest to hopefully find a cure before being consumed by the evil curse. During said quest he comes across a war between forest gods and an iron mining colony. Being the person he is, he just wants to help bring peace to both sides instead of having so much hatred in the world.
Overall the movie is great on many levels. Visually it looks amazing, there’s so much detail as you watch it’s just pure joy for your eyes. The directing is superb as well by Hayao Miyazaki who also wrote a wonderful story that just flows like a river. Finally with all the voice acting talent in this movie, it all comes together in a wonderful symphony.
Ready your sword, draw your bow and keep your powder dry for this episode and go have a listen!
