I recently heard that Hayao Miyazaki was going to be at Comic Con 2009. That's pretty exciting. I've always felt that Hayao Miyazaki has been a pioneer in the anime industry. His movies are able to reach a broad audience and that allows anime to expand worldwide. A lot of movie critics praise Hayao Miyazaki's movies and recommend them to people. That's great for the promotion of anime.
I don't hate Hayao Miyazaki's films but I don't really like them either. There a little too crazy
. His movies are totally "out there". It's like he made them while he was intoxicated. Hayao Miyazaki films are also visually stunning. I will continue to watch Hayao Miyazaki's films only to support anime and in hopes that he'll make a sane movie for once.
