The Miyazaki legacy: film collection
“You must see with eyes unclouded by hate. See the good in that which is evil, and the evil in that which is good. Pledge yourself to neither side, but vow instead to preserve the balance that exists between the two.” -Hayao Miyazaki
Hayao Miyazaki is a Japanese producer, director, writer, and artist. He is critically acclaimed, worshiped even, in Japan and worldwide. His animations, whether as mangas, series, or films, are one of the most recognizable themes of Japanese anime and cultural identity.
On Nov. 17th, 2015 Miyazaki’s film collection on Blu-ray was officially made available on amazon: The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki. For those of us who cannot afford such a wonderful package, here is a list of his movies available at the media library.
