Oh, and Hellboy 2 used the ending for Princess Mononoke in one of its fight scenes.

That's mainly why I tend not to like his works. When Howl's Moving Castle was released I remember BBC presenters essentially giving him the critical equivalent of fellatio.

In Pixar's defense, they were pleasuring themselves to Miyazaki before it was cool to do so.

If Mr. Lasseter's "Hi I'm John Lasseter and I'm trying to get legally married to Spirited Away" blurbs before every Ghibli DVD are any indication.

It's interesting to see what all of these different groups and people got out of Ghibli's works, and how it reflects their own work. I can definitely see Pixar's love for easter eggs and constant detail being reflected. I don't particularly get the Kung-Fu Panda thing, though. DW trying to be Disney/Pixar again?

Hayao Miyazaki's numerous admirers at Disney and Pixar date back to the 1980s and the 1990s.

And Miyazaki has many fans elsewhere in the animation and non-animation entertainment fields.

In a Critical Eye exclusive interview dated May 17, 1999, Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series) confesses that while he does not love Japanese animation (anime) in general the way he loves old classic Warner Bros. animation and Disney animation from the 1940s, he does love the animated movies of Hayao Miyazaki, which he says are "beautiful" and driven by "the emotional heart." He loves the way they are paced, he loves the way they sound, he loves the way they look.

Dini thinks Miyazaki is "terrific" and "phenomenal," a filmmaker who "transcends live-action and animation."

Siegel: That's bull. If Dini didn't love anime, he wouldn't borrow from Akira so much.

Er...Dini said that he didn't like anime in general (meaning there may be exceptions) in comparison to other types of animation. In this case, old Warner Bros. animation and Disney animation.

Also, Akira pays homage (or one might call it "borrowing") to American comics, not the other way around.

Tell Paul Dini that, not me.

Quote:
Paul Dini: I don't watch everything that comes out of Japanese animation. For me personally, it's not the most aesthetically pleasing style for me to look at. It's just a thing for me personally. It all tends to run together: big robots, Bambi-eyed superhero-type characters. Most of the stuff that's Japanese action/adventure, I've seen a fair amount of it, but I don't love it the way that I love old classic Warner Bros. or Disney stuff from the '40s.
