「耳をすませば」– more commonly known as Whisper of the Heart, is undoubtably one of my favourite Studio Ghibli films – or films of all time. I urge you to watch it this very moment if you haven’t seen it already.
I found the Cinema Comic book version in a Japanese bookstore today.
Am I being delusional? I asked myself as my eyes landed on the book. I couldn’t believe it.
Having the movie in a tangible format; pictures that I can touch and read over and over to my heart’s content: intimacy only the cordial words and illustrations of a book can offer, is quite honestly, the best thing.
