The Simpsons Pays Tribute to Hayao Miyazaki in Latest Episode


Over his career at Studio Ghibli, legendary anime director brought us many wonderful fantasy-inspired worlds, from the memorable Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind to quite possibly my favorite animated film Spirited Away. His filmography is by no means negligible, and if someone wanted to pay tribute to his work there would be quite a lot to work with right?

In the latest episode of The Simpsons “Married to the Blob” which is set to air on the 12th January 2014 across North America, they will pay tribute to Miyazaki’s work as previewed in the above trailer.

Hayao Miyazaki recently announced his retirement following the release of his 2013 film “The Wind Rises”, which has already won a sizable number of accolades and awards.

Founder of The Otaku's Study. I have been exploring this labyrinth of fandom these last fourteen years, and still nowhere close to the exit yet. Probably searching for a long time to come.
