posted on by Egan Loo
The Niconico video service will stream the Tokyo press conference on Hayao Miyazaki's retirement from feature films on Friday at 2:00 p.m. (1:00 a.m. EDT). Miyazaki will appear in person to explain his reasons for retirement. Also attending will be Studio Ghibli President Koji Hoshino and Miyazaki's longtime producer Toshio Suzuki.
Hoshino announced on Sunday that Miyazaki is retiring from making feature films; The Wind Rises is Miyazaki's 11th and final feature film. Shortly thereafter, NTV suddenly replaced its Friday evening airing of X-Men Origins: Wolverine with Miyazaki's Porco Rosso, with less than a week's notice.
