previous thread: >>3455330Its starting to get hotter outside, but let's keep this going! Post more cute Studio Ghibli Girls!
>>3483537Kiki and Mary
Sound! Euphonium is at the theater tonight and the 15th if anyone is interested.
So there have been a few recurring Ghibli threads. Who is your favorite Ghibli girl?I see a lot of Kiki, San, and Nausicaa in the threads.
>>3490407My favorite is kiki
I finished the book When Marnie Was There yesterday. It's been my favorite movie for a long time and it feels good to have finally read the source material.
>>3499214Are there any significant differences between the movie and the novel?
Kiki has one more showing tonight at 7PM if anyone is interested.
>>3500335Yeah, the pacing is super different. I'll list some major differences off the top of my head.>Takes place in the UK>Takes place in the mid 60's when the book was written>Anna is angstier and more depressed in the book than in the movie, she also doesn't draw as a hobby>Instead of just Sayaka and her older brother, the Marsh Manor is home to a family of 5 siblings whom Anna befriends>a lot more focus on the new family in the Marsh Manor, not much focus on Marnie for the last third or so of the book>the silo is a windmill
>>3501062Interesting, I don't know if I'll get to reading it anytime soon (I have a massive backlog of books) but it makes sense that it originally took place in the U.K. I always thought it was a bit of a stretch that a western family would be living in rural Japan in a manor house 60-something years ago.
>>3502256I always rationalized it where Marnie was American and the family had a summer house in Japan to skirt prohibition-era alcohol laws. Why Japan? Maybe the family was really into Orientalism or they had important clientele in Japan. The only problem with that theory is what happened when WWII rolled along, surely Japan wouldn't take kindly to Americans (even fully assimilated ones) living in Japan but whatever. At the end of the day it's just a theory. However in the book it's revealed that Marnie was living in the manor during WWI but I'll just count that as a difference between the book and the movie. Everything about the party scene in the movie screams roaring 20's to me, not 1910's.
why is this image so appealing?
>>3502517I can buy that. I agree the party is definitely in the interwar era.
From earlier tonight.
