Spirited Away by sycamoreleaf Spirited Away by sycamoreleaf
Once you've met someone, you won't really forget them. It just takes a while for your memory to return...

"Will we meet again sometime?"
"Sure we will"

HOLY FU**** S****!!! I can't believe I did this! I CANNOT believe I DID THIS! On a school night! *does the Rapunzel dance of "yay" and "nay"...*

... oh, right - drawing *ahem*

For a couple of weeks now, I've been rather stressed with work, so after taking ~Bezanthume's suggestioin, I decided to take a break and finally watch Spirited Away. Well, it is a Ghibli movie, and I am rather fond of Howl's Moving Castle...

The moment I pressed "play" my life was changed forever...

I can start, but I don't think I can ever finish saying just how much I love this movie! Spirited Away must be - in my opinion - one (if not the) of the best movies to have ever existed! There are so many things to like: the characters, the atmosphere, the animation (:heart:) the music, the incredible use of Japanese folklore mixed with modern terms to create one of the awesomest bits of animation ever!

~Bezanthume, I will continue to thank you forever and a day after that to thank you for introducing me to this beauty! :salute:

You can imagine that my hands were itching (even without my knowledge) to draw some SA fanart. The result stands before you. Why now? ... I have no idea...

But here it is. And in case you're wondering, I do believe these two met again after the movie ended, and I sure want to think that they got to spend some memorable moments together - lighting lanterns on water being one of them :aww: And yes, Haku is burning the sign for "light" on that lantern, and yes, he is also making the water dance. Anything for a friend, right?
