7 best Hayao Miyazaki cartoons that teach important things

“A good children's film needs to be made with the expectation of adults,” said Miyazaki. Probably this is the reason for the love of children and adults of almost all ages for his works. After all, the cartoons of Hayao Miyazaki not only capture their stunning picture and plot, but also leave behind a lot of topics that I want to think about.

Hayao Miyazaki's best cartoons: TOP-7

In 2013, Hayao Miyazaki announced that his era in animation had come to an end, but at the end of 2016 he suddenly pleased all his fans with news of the return. The change of plans was promoted by the Boro Caterpillar, its first short film using computer technology, which the master was not satisfied with, and therefore decided to rework and release it as a full-length cartoon.

In workshop

The multiplier plans to complete the Boro Caterpillar by 2020, coinciding with the full-length film for the upcoming Summer Olympics in Tokyo.And while we remember the best cartoons of Hayao Miyazaki, which have long been loved and remembered by millions of viewers from around the world.

Navskaya from the valley of winds (1984)

The cartoon tells about the Earth of the future, on which an ecological catastrophe of enormous proportions has erupted. The whole planet was covered with forest, in which poisonous plants grow and ugly giant insects live. But there was still in the world an island of hope - the realm of the Valley of the Winds, where the good and wise ruler Jill lives with her brave daughter - Princess Navsikaia, who seeks to change the fate of the planet.

Navskaya flies

Hayao Miyazaki’s cartoons very often raise the topic of environmental pollution of the Earth in their story, but in the anime this problem deliberately looks even more intimidating. The same thought carries in itself the “Navskaya from the Valley of Winds”, making you think about the important and fragile balance between the world of people and the world of animals and plants.

Ponyo fish on the cliff (2008)

The unusual and mischievous fish Ponyo is the daughter of a sea goddess and sorcerer who lives on the bottom of the ocean. Curiosity once pushed her to watch people, among whom she noticed a boy named Sooske and fell in love with him.Now Ponyo intends to turn into a person in any way.

Sooske and Ponyo

Perhaps this is one of the most truly childlike and good Miyazaki cartoons, in which you will not find a single villain. He teaches us faith, hope, and the fact that a person must always keep his word, not giving promises that he cannot fulfill. To create this anime Hayao pushed "The Little Mermaid" by Hans Christian Andersen.

The wind is getting stronger (2013)

Miyazaki is well able to shoot sentimental cartoons, and "The Wind Grows Strong" is one of them. In it, you will find the story of a short-sighted boy Jiro, who in his heart has always dreamed of flying a beautiful and fast plane, and lived trying to come to terms with the idea that poor eyesight would not let him become a pilot. Then he decided to do everything to become an aircraft designer and create the perfect aircraft. And on the way to this goal, Jiro is waiting for a lot of joys and trials.

Jiro with a small plane

This is the last full-length work of the master at the moment. And in it, he, as always sincerely, showed what happens when our bright dreams face the cruel reality of this world. But at the same time it teaches us not to give up and understand: the path to a dream is long and requires effort. A good way to motivate and remove the "rose-colored glasses"!

My Neighbor Totoro (1988)

Two sisters move to the village: the elder Satsuki and the youngest Mei. Exploring the neighborhood, they meet an unusual creature named Totoro, who turns out to be the guardian spirit of the forest, and later becomes a friend and helper for girls.

Totoro and Company

In this cartoon, the author again tries to establish a balance between the world of nature and man. This kind and unusual cartoon makes you believe in magic, remember the importance of friendship and mutual assistance, and adults will look back when watching what it is like to be a curious, cognitive child.

Moving Castle (2004)

Hattery Sophie once falls in love with the beautiful magician Howl, who travels the world in the Walking Castle, but a jealous witch takes away her beauty, turning a girl into an old woman. Sophie remains to live in the castle and, together with her new friends, is trying to find a way to get rid of her curse.

Sophie and her friend

One of the most famous works of Hayao Miyazaki, where steampunk combined with magic in 19th century Europe. She will teach to believe in herself and her friends, look for the good in everything, rejoice at even the smallest things in life and remind you: don't rush to conclusions until you know a person better.

Princess Mononoke (1997)

By killing the attacker on his cast of boar, Prince Ashitaka condemned himself to a deadly curse. Trying to change fate, he leaves and ends up in the Iron City. There, people mine iron ore and make weapons, cutting down the nearby forest and poisoning it with the waste of its magical inhabitants - and thus wage a long war with them. But the wild girl San - Princess Mononoke, raised by a she-wolf goddess, protects animals and spirits from people. Ashitake will have to decide what role he will play in this fight.

Princess Mononoke with she-wolves

An exciting cartoon that very vividly reveals the same exciting theme of the animation masters - the pollution of the Earth, the imbalance with the animal and plant world and the danger of an impending ecological disaster. He also exposes human meanness, cruelty, inclination to intrigue and unwillingness to live in peace with either nature or its own human race.

Spirited Away (2001)

Ten-year-old Chihiro and her parents find themselves in an abandoned amusement park, where something amiss is happening. After eating a meal with a variety of dishes they found in the park, the girl's parents turn into pigs, terrifying Chihiro.Having escaped, she meets the boy Haku: he tells her about the evil witch Yubaba, who is in charge of this place, on whom it depends whether the girl can save her father and mother.

Chihiro and Haku

Many Hayao Miyazaki cartoons are widely known in the world, but all records of popularity are beaten by Spirited Away. In addition to an interesting plot and wonderful animation, here is the theme of adaptation to the world of adults and readiness for change, the need not to put the label “bad” or “good” on people. The cartoon teaches that every meeting is not accidental, and also shows what greed and gluttony leads to.

By the way, "Spirited Away" is the first anime that got into an Oscar nomination, and the first one that managed to pick up this statuette. Other interesting facts about this cartoon can be found in the following video:
