Back in September 2013, Hayao Miyazaki shocked the world when he announced that he was retiring from making feature-length films. It turns out that the Oscar-winning animated filmmaker (pictured, via) has other creative projects he wants to focus on.
In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Miyazaki talked about the manga comic he’s currently drawing. The story follows “samurai in the 16th century, wearing full armor, battling it out with each other.”
Miyazaki wants to take a stab at creating this story because he felt “very dissatisfied with the way that era was depicted in fiction and film, so I wanted to draw something that would reflect the way I thought that era should look.” What do you think?
