Extra: Howl’s Character Analysis

100-Day Challenge – Post #11

Ah, I watched Howl’s Moving Castle again today, and I thought more about Howl’s character. The more I watch this movie, the more I start to understand, so I wanted to share my thoughts on Howl. He’s an interesting character!

Howl2So, I was thinking about a few things about Howl. First, when he freaks out about his hair color changing to orange haha Although I do admit, despite his good looks, the orange hair looked kinda goofy on him. I thought it was hilarious, though, the way he reacted. He’s really, really into his looks, but I think it’s because he’s very insecure. It’s because of the bird-creature transformation he goes into when he fights in the war. I mean, it’s not attractive, so I think Howl always does his best to look clean-cut and handsome because of his insecurities with his other identity. Maybe, because of the bird-creature he turns into, he thinks he won’t be accepted or liked, so he’s like the typical Prince Charming with his blonde hair, wooing girls everywhere. But then again, his moving castle is very unsightly on the outside, so I wonder if that’s to push people away. He makes himself attractive, but he makes everything else in his life.. not. Interesting character, I said. 🙂

Anime/Book Movie: Howl’s Moving Castle

100-Day Challenge – Post #10

This is the second Hayao Miyazaki film that I’ve watched, and I’m starting to feel like I’m going to watch all his movies! Wow, Howl’s Moving Castle was just… amazing in a different way. At first, I didn’t completely understand the movie. But after reading from various sites about the meaning behind Howl’s Moving Castle and all its metaphors and symbols, I’ve really come to love the film very much. Also, Howl is a HUNK!!! His voice, in the English dubbed version of Howl’s Moving Castle, is hot, too. But besides that, the depth of this movie is incredible, so I’d love to talk about it in depth today. 🙂 By the way… I totally forgot that One Piece and Naruto manga chapters would come out today… Oops. I got way too into Howl’s Moving Castle hahaha
