"No one talked of Mrs Glasher now, any more than they talked of the victim in a trial for manslaughter ten years before: she was a lost vessel after whom nobody would send out an expedition of search; but Grandcourt was seen in harbour with his colours flying, registered as seaworthy as ever."

Studio Ghibli Co-Founder Suzuki Points to Hideaki Anno as the Next-Miyazaki during TIFF press conference

"Studio Ghibli co-founder, producer and former president Toshio Suzuki took the stage with Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno to announce the complete list of 50 of Anno’s work from student films and promo videos to TV programs and theatrical features to be screened for October’s 27th edition of Tokyo International Film Festival’s special “The World of Hideaki Anno" programming. During this, Suzuki spoke to Anno’s role in the future of anime, and the ever-popular subject of a next-Miyazaki, insisting that after Miyazaki, it has to be Anno.

The idea of featuring Anno’s work as TIFF’s centerpiece was suggested by Suzuki after festival organizers asked for ideas. He explained “Hayao Miyazaki would have been featured if he hadn’t retired.” Anno responded to Suzuki’s offer “I couldn’t say no to Suzuki-san, since he has done so much for me”.

Suzuki also said, “I am certain that Anno will be the one to lead Japanese animation into the next decade” and “only people with talent can create. I would like him to cherish the god-given talent and keep producing”. However, given Anno’s responsibilities towards his own studio, Khara, no comments suggested that plans exist for Anno to take a role at Studio Ghibli.

Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno’s career has deep ties with the works of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. Hideaki Anno worked as an animator for Studio Ghibli forerunner Topcraft on Miyazaki’s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Anno impressed the crew so much that Toshio Suzuki has said that there was talk of making the ecological epic a trilogy with Anno directing the middle feature. He later voiced the lead in Miyazaki’s final movie, The Wind Rises.”

^is this Anno taking one step closer to direct a Nausicaa sequel at Studio Ghibli?

in a recent interview Miyazaki stated when he suffered a health scare during production of the Wind rises the first person that came to mind to complete his work was Anno and in the same interview he also gave Anno the blessing to create a Nausicaa sequel if he desired.

The Marienbrunnen (Marian Fountain) in Großgmain, Austria.

A rare variation of the Immaculata theme, Mary is shown squirting water from both her breasts, a reference to the maternal care she provides.

Shouldn’t she be breastfeeding more discreetly? Are there no public lavatories in Großgmain? Are there no blankets? Couldn’t she just express the water at home and put it in bottles like a normal person? Etc.

but i ran out of cliches

i tried to say you plainly
but there wasn’t enough truth

whoever invented this language
didn’t anticipate you
