Again, the SOAS-SOAS committtee board HAD to once again dedicate an entire episode to this. You can also listen to the panel’s previous discussion about the world of Ghibli in Class 2: Anime A-Listers, Hayao Mizayaki.
Spoilers from the upcoming Ghibli production, ‘Goro The Caterpillar’ by Miyazaki spices up the interview, where it is currently under the concept wrap-up and to be pitched investors and producers, how the studio is surviving in this era, and on the collaboration with Joe Hisaishi.
Co-conducting this special class is Professor Chris, Rice’s new otaku nakama in her country.
This week’s music choice is “A Town With An Ocean View” by Joe Hishaishi, the Budokan Live version. The song is an original soundtrack from the movie Kiki’s Delivery Service.
