Clash in Victoria Park
"Good evening gentlemen... or should I say good morning, seeing as its past midnight already..." Ratigan said wearing a devious smirk on his face, as he and his many henchmen walked up to the group of cats and the raven.
Baron stared down at the group of mice and looked at the one that most of the mice flanked.
"Hello, Ratigan I presume?" Baron asked calmly staring down at the largest of the rodents.
"You presume correctly...Mr..." Ratigan replied.
"Baron Humbert von Gikkingen..." Baron said taking off his top hat and bowing.
Toto leaned in towards the Baron and whispered.
"I thought he was a mouse... guess not..." Toto said staring intently at the large rat.
One of Lune's soldiers from behind Baron had stepped forward.
"Where are the king's kittens?" the soldier asked sternly.
"Hasty... aren't you... well, can't expect anything less from a group of cats..." Ratigan sighed.
Muta then stepped forward angrily.
"You watch your mouth, rat! Or I swear! You

Yuki, or as she wants to be called 'Louise', walked with me through the castle's garden is silence.
I wanted to say something; I wanted to ask what was on her mind. Did she really want to go through with this? Does she really want to start from where she left off? But why...? Just hours ago, Yuki was to be married to the heir of the throne and at the time she seemed to be so happy. But ever since she and I discovered we shared a past and that she was once in a different image, her happy mood has reduced to what seemed like depression. If she's so sad about this, why does she want to continue being someone she isn't anymore? Not to mention she doesn't even have her full memories of Louise back. She may have similar features as Louise and her personally might even mirror Louise's, but Yuki doesn't have Louise's spirit. Louise was once a creation, a living doll, like myself. She was immortal. We were separated due to our previous owners, but then the war happened

Time Ticks On
"We're all out of the teleporting dust, Baron." Muta said shaking the pouch that was given to them from Lune.
"Then we will just have to fly the rest of the way. Is that okay for you Toto?" Baron asked looking down at his friend.
"I don't get tired Baron... I'll be fine." Toto reassured.
Baron nodded, and then looked down from Toto, studying the land below them, beneath the clouds.
"Hmmm... I'm guessing that we are just above Poland right now, which means we are about 15 hours away from England." Baron calculated.
"Are we going to be in London before Midnight, in time for that crazy rat's hostage exchange?" Muta asked.
"Yes, we will make it, in fact we might arrive much earlier." Baron said.
Muta suddenly smirked.
"If we have time, maybe we could visit Haru." Muta smirked knowingly at Baron.
Baron's heart immediately skipped a beat at the sudden mention of Haru.
"W-we don't know her location Muta... and anyway... it's been more than a week
Yesterday I saw The Wind Rises.When I heard that this movie will be Hayao Miyazaki's final film, I just had to see it. And boy did I glad I did. This really makes for a great film to end his legacy on. A romanticized, yet intriguing character study on Tatsuo Hori, struggling to just make planes as art and not have them be corrupted for war. Plus, the romance he shared with Naoko Satomi really brings in the feels. She was just such a lovable character.Yesterday I saw The Wind Rises. by AfroOtaku917
Also, I noticed a couple of winks to Pixar films. Like Caproni plays a role similar to Gusteau from Ratatouille. Being a part of Tatsuo's imagination guiding him on his quest in life. Plus, the little boss character Kurokawa reminded me instantly of Gilbert Humph from The Incredibles. Even having a similar voice to him. It just makes for a great sentiment to Miyazaki's friendship with John Lassetter.
So as a whole, I loved The Wind Rises. It's ranked as one of my favorite Studio Ghibli films, and it makes for a great conclusion to Hayao's career. It ends on a bit

A Taste of Failure
Eyes wide with horror Basil and the others stared at Ratigan in utter shock.
"B-basil... Did he just wish for-?" Dawson asked weakly and hesitantly while having his arms held behind his back by one of Ratigan's lackeys.
"I believe he did Dawson..." Basil replied slowly.
Baron studied Ratigan closely, very confused.
'Did Ratigan just mention Haru in his wish? No... it has to be another Haru...' Baron thought to himself.
Baron turned to Toto and Muta who were also showing similar confused looks as he had.
Ratigan smirked and turned to their group and started chuckling.
"I'm sorry my dear Basil, but it looks like you couldn't stop me this time. I'm afraid I already made my wish." Ratigan said holding the Cat Eye of Miw tauntingly to Basil and the others.
"This isn't over Ratigan...not… yet!" Basil hissed struggling against the henchman holding him back.
"Your right... after all I still need the Opal of the Hund, the last stone to grant

"Louise..." said a deep voice.
"Baron?" Yuki asked, walking slowly into a dark abyss, before her.
"Not quite love..." said the voice.
Yuki kept walking into the black abyss, not knowing the exact destination she was heading, but she kept on advancing forward, hoping to find the owner of the mysterious voice.
"You are back Louise... You finally came back to me..." said the voice only a bit softer.
Yuki kept progressing onward till she noticed something visible in the distance.
She squinted her eyes to see two blood colored eyes staring back at her intently.
Yuki trembled a little in fear, at the way the eyes stared down at her.
'I know those eyes...' Yuki thought in wonder.
"You’re-." Yuki began but was cut off by a deep chuckle coming from the same direction as the eyes.
"Oh Louise... you’re back... now we can be together..."
Yuki's eyes opened and she abruptly sat up in her bed.
She looked at her surroundings to see she was still in bed.
|WHO IS STUDIO GHIBLI?|
Studio Ghibli is an animation studio based in Japan. It was set up by animator Hayao Miyazaki and film maker Isao Takahata in 1985 for 'Tenkyuu no Shiro Rapyuta' (Laputa: Castle in the Sky). However the studio had earlier beginnings with 'Kaze no Tani no Naushika' (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind) in 1983, which was based on a manga by Miyazaki.
The studio has consistently produced high quality films and is one of the leading animation studios in the world. [CLICK TO SEE FILM LIST]
ABOUT THE MASCOT
Totoro hails from the movie 'Tonari no Totoro' (My Neighbour Totoro). It is a forest spirit and was adopted as mascot after the movie was critically acclaimed and merchandise of its lead character helped earn the studio financial stability in its early days. There are in fact 3 Totoros: Oh-Totoro (Large Totoro), Chuu-Totoro (Medium Totoro) and Chibi-Totoro (Small Totoro). However when we say 'Totoro' we usually refer to Oh-Totoro. 'Totoro' is mispronounciation of the word 'troll' by the 4-year old protagonist in the film.
