howls moving castle has to be one of miyazakis best movies. if you are interested in studio ghibli, this movie is a great way to start. i really love the art in this one, the settings in each part are just perfect.
even if the main characters in this movie are super pretty and have great personalities, the best piece of howls moving castle is the scenery. howls bedroom, the castle, the city, the fields, it just brings such an important part.
the 'lore' behind this movie is also so amazing! i love the theories. the thought that this movie could be one big loop is so neat. i wouldn't be surprised either! hayao miyazaki is very ahead of his time, his movies never fail to impress me. i give this movie a 4 1/2 of 5!!
