To think I thought that this place would take care of itself.... sigh... I guess I must sow some more seeds after all....

Porco Rosso.... This movie should need no introduction.... but... times are tough... so here goes...

Its a story about an ace pilot who.... for some strange reason.... has taken on the form of a pig... gah.... I dont have enough free time.... Ripoff from Wiki follows....

The film tells of the story of Porco and his would-be romance with Gina, who runs a sea pilots' club and hotel in the Adriatic Sea. The plot revolves around Porco's friendship with a girl named Fio, who is a talented aircraft engineer, and his rivalry with a hotshot American pilot named Curtis. Porco has been cursed with the face of a pig, though the origin and nature of the curse is never fully explained.
Originally a WWI ace pilot in the Italian Air Force, Porco has grown disillusioned and now makes his living as a bounty hunter guarding ships in the Adriatic sea from pirate gangs with planes. Though rivals, Porco and the pirates manage to coexist with a minimum of bloodshed. For relaxation, he and other pilots spend their evenings on neutral ground at the Hotel Adriano, the establishment run by Gina.

I loved this movie... not only cause it was loaded with these cool looking aircraft.... but because it has some very beautiful and detailed visuals (as you might expect from the Ghibli Miyazaki combo).... the story is clean and flows well... none of the usual fan service stuff... but still entertaining...


There are three reasons why you can't defeat me. One: Your sword is too light. Two: There's nothing I can't cut. Three: I'm more handsome than you - Kyo
