Thanks for butchering my favorite book series of all time.

He's being a little over critized. Following into his father footsteps isn't easy, but I think he's doing a good job so far. I enjoyed Poppy a lot more than other romances that are widely more popular, his best work thus far and so full of live, vibrant and charming. It had a lot of character. Keep it up Gorou!

I hope you make more films in the future.

In Croatia we jokingly call him Gori Miyazaki (lesser/worse)

I must admit Gedo Senki is my favourite installment of Earthsee... don't know why it's rated so badly...

I really like Goro Miyazakis movies for the same reason I like Makoto Shinkais movies, or rather, I like them in the same way. There is some sort of melodramatic aura or a sense of them being unrefined. A little bit clumsy and crude but at the same time very captivating.

I really liked Coquelicot-zaka kara, but then, Goro had a little bit less involvement with it than he did with Tales of Earthsea, which was a mess. It's clear he isn't too interested with directing movies, but he still does a good job, in a way. He has some certain qualities with his movies that are very different from his father, but not necessarily better or worse, which is nice. I still like his movies better than what other guys besides Takahata and Miyazaki have been doing at Studio Ghibli, although I haven't seen Marnie yet for myself. Also, I wonder what Niwa Keiko is like. She's involved with pretty much all of the least popular Ghibli movies, and I sometimes wonder what she might have to do with the quality.

Good job! :D

He confessed in the Studio Ghibli documentary that he directs animations only so that he can please his peers at the studio and live up to their expectations. He does not love what he does and the results make it painfully obvious.

Don't ever let your parents force you into the family business if you're not cut out for it, yo! Especially when artistic creativity is what that business is all about.

From Up On Poppy Hill is a fantastic film. Its the best Ghibli film that wasn't directly directed by Hayao or Takahata. One has to wonder though how much his father's influence might have contributed to the quality of it though, considering the comparisons between it and Earthsea which was all Goro and wasn't nearly as good (however its not bad either).

I haven't yet seen Ronja though I plan to at some point. Looks like it will be fun.

We might not actually see much more out of Goro considering he started in the industry at a late age and Ghibli may shut down. I really hope it doesn't. It might not be the same without Hayao and Isao Takahata but at the end of the day an animation studio existing is better than it not. Give more opportunities to other guys to step up, even if they flop its worth a shot.
