Japanese animation legend Hayao Miyazaki to retire | The Verge →

September 03, 2013 |

I know I’m a little late to the party on this one, but I just have to link to it anyway:

Hayao Miyazaki, the legendary Oscar-winning Japanese animator known for directing Studio Ghibli movies such as Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro, and Kiki's Delivery Service, is retiring from feature-length film production.

Mr. Miyazaki is one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. His work is a perfect reminder that our imagination knows no boundaries, and can conquer anything.
