Animecast: The Wind Rises & The Tale of the Princess Kaguya


The Studio Ghibli marathon continues as the hosts of the Animecast continue on to review two more recently released films.  After reviewing and discussing The Wind Rises, they then move on to The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.  Listen in to get their take!

Following the two reviews, a special spoiler discussion for The Tale of the Princess Kaguya takes place.  Following the outro music for the episode, the 48:30 mark, this spoiler discussion begins.  If you haven’t seen the movie, avoid listening beyond that point.

The intro for this episode is from the soundtrack for The Wind Rises called “A Journey” by Joe Hisaishi.  The outro is from the soundtrack for Princess Kaguya called “When I Remember This Life” by Kazumi Nikaido.  The spoiler segment ends with the song “Mountain Hamlet” also by Joe Hisaishi.  Both the soundtrack for The Wind Rises and Princess Kaguya can be found on iTunes!

We hope you all enjoy!
