I hear some people didn't like this movie for certain reasons I don't get and I wanted to defend the movie and ask well, what's wrong with that?

The characters are too perfect

I never thought the characters were too nice, I liked how Jiro was a completely nice man who made some mistakes but wanted to owe up to them, I don't mind characters like that. Because it's good to owe up to mistakes but yes, everyone has their shadow sides. I don't see what's the problem with hanging out with a man like him. Yeah, he and Naoka could've had a few moments of negative behaviors that could've stood out, but I haven't seen it in 3 years so I don't remember if he has any negative traits from them.

Not enough Drama

The Wind Rises also has some funny and action moments in them, most funny and especially action movies don't have that much drama in them, say emotions or rudeness or whatever. It's still a sad movie with some conflict. Now, I don't know if the movie was accurate for its time period.

It's too innocent

Again, what is wrong with watching a sweet, happy, positive movie like this? What is wrong with watching a movie where the negative scenes don't last long? Such as Jiro helping some people who are being bullied? He seems like a pure peacemaker and it's different from most movies with bullying characters who get away with them.

I think that this movie was written well, it's not one of Miyazaki's best but it's still pretty good.

Numbuh 3, you've got to get off the couch, you cannot sit in that tree house, girl you like Rainbow Monkeys so grab your little shit and then swing!

Hand tracks be tracking me to different doorways. In a maze, and I don't know what to do. Guaranteed though, Ima find the emeralds.

There are people who think this movie is too innocent? I'd say, theme-wise, it is hardly innocent as it is about a creator with a passion for his creations that ultimately become a tool of war. It's a mature movie without needing to have tons of sex, violence and swearing, though I think because of that, the people who really love this movie may have more niche tastes than most anime fans.

As a creator myself, I personally related to Jirou a lot. I felt as if his ways of thinking and working with his creations was something I could understand much more than other creator characters in other anime and I really appreciated that.

This movie is "realistic" in "real meaning". When I'm reading rewiews i saw that sentence: "There are no bad guys".
In real life you can't see bad guys like in animes. We are all know that. Also Jiro reacts LİKE A MAN everything. Not like an anime girl. This is a problem of anime industry.
In short: a real fresh breath for a seinen fan. I dont recommend if you loved Tokyo Ghoul or Kuroko no Basket.

I loved this movie . It moved me as much as wolf children. There will always be people who dislike what you like. Let them be. It is a problem with popular piece of works , they receive review from very wide variety of people.

Many people are too shallow. All they want is big boobs , intense drama etc, which obviously was not the purpose of this movie. The way jiro hugged Nahoko is enough to explain the depth of characters which you could'nt find in other anime.

Just watched the movie a few days ago...

Was a very nice and interesting movie...infact, I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone.

The artwork/animation was so good...to the point that it looked very very realistic...but then again, this is a Miyazaki...accept nothing less!

As for the story, my peeves were

1.I think they should have focused on Nahoko a bit more.
2.Still on Nahoko, I don't think they focused more on her relationship with Jiro enough.
3. Nahoko's illness was used to make her look like the 'innocent ideal girl'...in my opinion, she was a one dimensional character who exists to support Jin. (Especially as an adult..child Nahoko looks more lively).
4.I think the Germans were portrayed in a way that made them look like punch clock villans...just sayin...
5.They skipped over WW2...now there is a good source of drama!

Otherwise...good film.
