“Howl's Moving Castle is a graceful fantasy that builds on the strengths Miyazaki displayed in Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. His riotous imagination remains strong. The titular castle is a glorious ruin of domes and cottages that lurches over the countryside on mechanical chicken legs. His characters are well drawn, as always, and his richly textured backgrounds enhance both character and mood. This visual elegance supports a strong-hearted story.” - Andrew Dowler, Now Magazine
