The storyboards for Spirited away, drawn by Miyazaki-san himself ( just as he did for most of his other films ) allows you relive the film again at your own pace, shot by shot. At a whopping 648 pages, this is even thicker than the Princess Mononoke storyboard book.
Its always an enjoyment to pore through the notes and captions accompanying each board, sometimes with interesting trivia and mini comics that Miyazaki doodles to amuse himself.
(below) A crash course in anime camera techniques, as illustrated by the master himself. This is included in all of Miyazaki’s storyboard books.
Now we only need Ghibli to release the blu-ray for the film. Hurry please !
