Ponyo
« on: August 31, 2010, 11:51:47 am »
I'm someone who loves Studio Ghibli films and I just got to see this recently. It's left me feeling conflicted when I say so but it's still a good movie.

Full review here: http://axelsplayground.squarespace.com/journal/2010/8/31/ponyo.html

This topic needed to be made. I, for one, approve of it.
Where were you when this premiered, Axelgear?
So... yeah. Ponyo's mother is the SEA!? AWESOME!
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

ponyo's mother is NOT the sea,
Ponyo's mother is the MOON
get it straight,




Ponyo, ponyo, ponyo, fishy in the sea
tiny little fishy, who could you really be?
Ponyo, ponyo, ponyo, magic set's you free;
oh she's a little girl with a round tummy.
tip-tippie-toe, jump-jump and hop, now that I've got my legs, I cannot stop
pat-pattie-pat waving 'hello!'
come and hold hands with me, dancing we go
my feet are skipping, my heart too
happy-happy are we all
maybe I might love you, maybe I might love you
so hold on tight and hold me close,
you're my hero!
Ponyo, ponyo, ponyo, fishy in the sea
tiny little fishy, who could you really be?
Ponyo, ponyo, ponyo, magic set's you free,
oh pretty little girl will you swim back to me?

That comment proves just how long it's been since I saw this movie.

Ponyo's mother is the goddess of mercy, according to the sailors. We only ever see her in the sea, she talks about feeling magic in the sea, etc. I understand the associations of the sea and the moon, but nothing ever suggests she's the goddess of the moon.

Is their a trope for all the insanity Japan adds to foreign concepts?
