Description

Studio Ghibli's latest full-length animated feature comes to DVD, directed by Hayao Miyazaki's son Goro Miyazaki! The world is gripped in terror as plants are drying up, livestock are going to waste, and the human brain begins to corrupt. Natural disasters are punishing the kingdom of Enlad and the light which should be bringing balance to the world is weakening. Meanwhile the sacred sword has been stolen from the king by an assassin. On the verge of passing out, the king mutters the name "Arren" . . . the name of his only son who is on a journey to find the source of the destruction in the world. When Arren comes across the powerfull sorcerer Haitaka, a man formerly known as Ged who is the root of the terror, the balance of the world begins to crumble and Arren's life itself is on the edge. However, when Haitaka witnesses Arren's inability to overcome the darkenss in his own heart, Haitaka sees elements of himself in the young prince. He spares his life and the two venture out into the world. Limited edition includes bonus artwork archive, theatrical feature, and deluxe, double-amray case. Includes English subtitles.

ゲド戦記 / アニメ

スタジオジブリ最新長編アニメーションいよいよDVDで登場!! 監督宮崎吾朗が主人公アレンを通じて、現代の若者が持っている根源的な問題に触れ、「生きていくことの大切さ」を説く。――あちこちで作物が枯れ、羊や牛がダメになり、人間の頭が変になっている。世界の均衡が、崩れつつあった。エンラッド王の下には、国を襲う天変地異の報が数多くもたらされていた。世界の均衡がもたらすはずの光が弱まり、黄昏が深まる予兆を告げる魔法使いに王の憂いは深まる一方だった。ひとり宮殿を歩む王を襲い、宝剣を奪ったひとりの刺客。薄れゆく意識の中で剣客に向けて呟いた名は「アレン」。それは、ただひとりの彼の息子の名前だった。世界で最も偉大な魔法使い、大賢人のハイタカ(真の名: ゲド)は、世界に災いをもたらすその源を探る旅の途上にあった。旅の途中、ハイタカは国を出奔した王子アレンと出会う。アレンは"影"に追われているようだった。世界の均衡を崩し、災いをもたらす力は、アレンにも及んでいたのだ。影から逃げ惑い、心の闇と向き合うことのできないアレンの姿に、ハイタカは若き日の自分の姿を見ていた。ふたりは共に旅を続け、人々が崩れた遺跡に巣食うように暮らす都城ホート・タウンにたどりつく。そこでアレンは、人買いに追われる少女テルーと出会う・・・。 2枚組(アマレーダブルBOX)。 [Disc2 (特典ディスク)]には、絵コンテ映像、劇場予告編集、ゲド戦記音図鑑Vol.1「『テルーの唄』はこうして生まれた。」を収録。 ピクチャー・ディスク仕様。

        great movie 5

        This is the last Ghibli movie on DVD to date. It's the first movie directed by Miyazaki's son (GORO). It's a gorgeous picture and great adventure. I like very much. It's a bit different like an other Ghibli movies.

        Excellent animation, OK development 4

        I think the animation is as good as any Studio Ghibli has ever done. Both the panoramas (a Studio Ghibli trademark) and the majestic, realistic motion of the individuals characters ensnare you. Characters are drawn with all the strong identity features you would hope for, beautiful and full of character. But the story told is somewhat weak, perhaps because insufficient time is allocated to character development leading up to each of the individual climactic events. For example, I did not see Arren's personality become more clear and developed going through the movie. Perhaps this was intended but it detracted from the movie as far as I was concerned. Overall, it certainly was a great buy, but not as good as my favorite Studio Ghibli movies: "Spirited Away", "Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind" or "My Neighbours The Yamadas".
