Spirited Away was one of the first animated features to do a lot of things. First of all, it did win many awards when it came out. In fact, it won an Oscar for being the Best Animated Feature. It also won an Academy Award, and it did that among five other nominees. That is a big deal because in past years, it would only be up against three. Also, I would like to point out that Spirited Away also won a Golden Bear Award in the Berlin International Film Festival. It is also very cool to point out the fact that this film was the highest grossing film of all time in Japan. In fact, the people in Japan are a lot different than us. It grossed over 30 billion yen, which is about 250 million dollars in the United States. It is also said that a sixth of Japan's populations has seen this movie. It beat out the highest grossing film at the time which was Titanic. A lot of people had a lot of great things to say about this movie, and it was a great film. However, it was a little too different for my taste in movies. In fact, this film only grossed about 10 million dollars in America. This is the reason why a lot of Japan movies and video games never come over to America. This is because they say that our style of living is a lot different than their's, and we will never be able to understand some of their games and movies. This may or may not be true. However, I wish that Spirited Away would have done better over here in America, so they would try and release more movies over here in America, as well as video games. In fact, they are just now starting to release all types of video games over here that normally would not be released. I wish that they would try and release more games over here for us. I think they would see that we do like a lot of the things that they like. We are not that different from them at all.
Even so, either way you look at it this movie, it did not do that good over here. However, the people that did see it really do love it and say that it was a great movie. Since then, you have seen a big increase in the number of Japanese books and video games finally making their way to American stores. In fact, I am now a big fan of watching anime and reading manga books. These are things that at one point were not very well known over here, but now everyone is starting to get into it. I think that Spirited Away was a movie that made of help jump start everything. I think because of this movie, people saw that cartoon movies and shows were not just for kids to love and enjoy. Japanese adults have been watching and loving cartoons for some time now. It is great to start seeing it over here in the states as well. I hope that one day we can all share the same joy of doing things together. After all, this is the greatest joy that we could ever know, and to think it was all started by a movie called Spirited Away. Now, not only are we all enjoying shows and movies like Spirited Away, we are also enjoying video games together and actually getting to play with people around the world.
I always like playing video games with other kids around the world, and I think that this could have been started by Spirited Away. Although I was not big on the style of cartoon, it was a great movie and had a great story line. So pretty much, it had a lot of great things going for it, and that is what you need for a great movie. Everything that you want in a great movie is in Spirited Away.
