The second film in my slow journey through Studio Ghibli classics.
Unlike Grave of the Fireflies, Princess Mononoke follows a fairly linear story arch. Whilst it’s basically a good vs evil story, at times it plays with this theme to show that sometimes the good side is also full of hate, and the evil side is also human.
I enjoyed the action in this one, and the costumes. Particularly the main character Ashitaka’s and Princess Mononoke’s.
