This chapter discusses the creative worlds of master animator Miyazaki Hayao and his colleague, animation director Takahata Isao, focusing on the collective yet individualistic components of their animated works. Miyazaki and Takahata founded Studio Ghibli in 1985, aimed primarily to produce animated feature films. Since the mid-1980s, Studio Ghibli's films have become well-known in Japan and abroad. Using the auteur model, the chapter also seeks to provide a theoretical framework for analyzing the anime cinema of Miyazaki and Takahata. It attempts to show how Miyazaki and Takahata have utilized the expressive medium of animation in responding to the changing socio-cultural environment of post-Second World War Japan.

Keywords:   Miyazaki Hiyao, Takahata Isao, Studio Ghibli, auteur model, anime cinema, animation
