YesAsia Editorial Description

Hayao Miyazaki's latest masterpiece Spirited Away is now available at YesAsia.com! Spirited Away is not an ordinary children's movie, but an invitation into a world of gods and adventures totally beyond your imagination. With a very simple yet profound plot, amazing music, and interesting characters, this animated film is an instant classic that will enchant audiences of all ages.

Chihiro, a ten year old girl, and her parents stumble into a mysterious land on their way to their new home. Her parents are turned into pigs by a spell and young Chihiro must now work for a powerful witch in this magical realm of colorful creatures and faceless spirits. She befriends a boy named Haku, but he seems to be harboring some secrets of his own. Stranded in a strange world, Chihiro must do all she can to save her parents and herself.

Spirited Away won the "Golden Bear" at the 52nd Berlin International Film Festival and an Oscar for "Best Animated Film" at the 75th Academy Awards.

Professional Review of "SPIRITED AWAY (Japan Version)"

July 24, 2002

This professional review refers to Spirited Away (DVD) (English/ Japanese/Traditional Chinese Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
Can I just say I recently had the fortune to see this film for the fourth time, most recently in the new English dub by Disney, which it looks like they like they will be promoting much more than Princess Mononoke.

And yes this is good thing.

Everything you may have heard about this movie is true (unless of course what you've heard that this movie is terrible and only deserves to be archived in the deepest darkest pits of hell along such greats as Tor the Fighting Eagle - in that case, I revoke my previous statement). It is a fine movie and well worth watching. I wasn't that surprised that the most anticipated event for the Japanime 02 survey we did recently was Spirited Away (though personally I was more looking forward to Millenium Actress but then I'd seen the movie twice previously already) but then Hayao Miyazaki (the director) is responsible for some damn fine anime such as Nausicaa, Porco Rosso and Princess Mononoke. Many critics tout Spirited Away as his greatest work ever and I'd be hard pressed to argue with them.

The film is simply wonderful. And I don't use wonderful as a mere expressive either; I actually mean the film is filled with a true sense of wonder, excitement, innocence and adventure that you loved as a kid (well at the very least, I loved as a kid).

To its very core, Spirited Away is a fairy tale and it is done so well that it doesn't have to much more than that. The most obvious comparison is with Alice in Wonderland with the young girl inadvertantly finding herself alone in an alien world. Of course in this film, Chihiro actually has a personal stake with this world and intereacts it so much more than Alice ever did as a detached observer (one of the benefits of this being a true fairytale and not a political commentary dressed up as such methinks). The characters in the film are so much more than just a freak sideshow and the growth of Chihiro is so... real... that you can't help but empathise with her and the friends she develops.

As a complete digression, I didn't think of this until just recently but I found it quite amusing that the movie was based around a bath house. Aficionados of anime will know that virtually all anime series involve a bath house episode to some extent. It has gotten to the stage that a number of series based around bath houses have started popping up that are completely over the top and silly. Not sure what this has to do with anything but anyway...

Normally I am one of those people who prefer subtitles over a dub as I have come across so many badly dubbed movies. However I really didn't mind the English dub and am so glad it was done properly and done well. If you want to be pedantic, it isn't perfect. I did notice some inconsistencies, mainly in the beginning before the story really gets going. But what I did appreciate was not having to focus so much on what was being said and being able to enjoy the beauty of the animation and the art.

I applaud Disney for finally marketing an anime to the general audience that I had expected with Princess Mononoke but didn't happen. This is a great piece of work and if you don't go to see it, I offer my condolences.

Totally Worth it! Love it!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Seeing how this is the only English dubed blu-ray release of "Spirited Away" this is the only way to enjoy the magnificent-ness in HD(as of this moment anyways). Now it is a bit expensive and probably only a huge fan of this movie would be willing to pay this, myself have no regrets. The case is beautiful, it has magnets in it for opening and closing it and is this pale black color that just appeals to the eye so well. The BD is in Japanese & English dub, and looks great in HD. Worth every penny! And for the record i played this on my American PS3 and it played 100% fine and does have English audio.

BEST EMOTIONAL MOVIE EVER!!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
If you do not see this movie, you are truly missing out on a wonderful, beautiful, epic masterpiece! I have never seen a movie with such spirit and heart as this one. The characters and the story line draws you in until you get so involved, you don't want the movie to end. I loved every last thing about this movie. The music was amazing and touched my heart and the ending...you MUST watch this movie. Trust me on this!
