Hayao Miyazaki's movies are able to draw in young audiences with the presence of the fantastical, but he also able to keep adult audiences entertained by combining the fantastical with a deeper meaning. All of the movies that were shared in class have similar style of drawing along with similar heroic characters. The hero in Princess Mononoke and the heroine in Nauiscaa Valley of the Wind both seemed to have a complete understanding of the problems that afflitcted their communities. Whereas the heroine in Spirited Away who was a bit younger than the other two, didn't have as much of an understanding of the problems portrayed, but her innocence and goodness just showed all of the older people in the movie the proper way to act. Hayao Miyazaki's is clearly a master of storytelling and of the art he chooses to relay his stories.
