Enjoyment 10 This is my first review in MyAnimeList, so I apologize in advance if you find the ideas I'll put forward here badly-written, explained or structured.
I am going to talk about Spirited Away yeah, obvious. It's been quite a long time since I watched it for the last time, more than a year in fact; but I became a really fascinating and influential piece for me at that time, far enough to define my current love for Miyazaki's works, the Studio Ghibli and animation in general as an art and a strong way of expression.
Today it's still one of my favorite animated features of any sort, and not because of its lack of flaws than its amazing blend of concepts.
Will Haku and Chihiro meet again???
The first thing that appeals the audience in this movie is its art and animation. I, as unexperienced and poor in technical knowledge about the subject, think it's utter fascinating, it manages to create a whole world out of nothing, and the use of lights and shades, the forms and colours make the overall experience a visual joy. And in addition to that I find the characters' gestures and movements extremely plastic and realistic, some other scenes have been mentioned in that aspect by other reviewers but I was particularly fond of that one where Chihiro is walking with her parents and she gradually moves away, only to come back to her position with a little run-up.
These things don't happen, usually, in animation. In so far as they are unnecessary, easily ignorable and feel like a waste of resources, we hardly see characters making these little movements which in the end result in nothing relevant. Ghibli, however, animates them, and does it with such a mastery, a love for detail and a goddamn naturalism that I can't help but feel amazed.
As if the visual aspect wasn't good enough, the movie is also a pleasure for our ears and has what I consider the best track of my heavily worshipped Joe Hisaishi, one of the best if not the best film composers I have ever heard. Spirited Away is exceptionally good at that aspect; I'd say it's one of the very few cases in which there is, at some scenes, such a strong fusion between story and music, that I can't conceive nor think of one without the other.
But despite all of these beautiful qualities about its setting, the real substance of this movie is at its story. I apologize in advance, again, because as I'm going to develop some points I will give some free spoilers.

If you haven't seen the movie I'd recommend to stop reading at this point. It has been said many times by critics that Spirited Away felt like a senseless blend of magic elements, just a simple story filled with many things the author introduced undiscriminatingly to drag out the experience.
Well, I have a quite different point of view for that device. I just can't conceive that the animation, for example, is taken to such a high level of detail and, on the other hand, that doesn't happen with the story. And by rewatching it repeatedly in a short amount of time once every two months, more or lessI began to develop some theories about the nature of the world that is depicted here.
The Japanese version, however, explains that the river still flows underground. This is why Haku was working for Yubaba, as he was lost and had no way to get home. Haku is no longer bound to Yubaba because he was released from her contract after recovering his real name, which means that he is able to go where he pleases, even possibly to cross between worlds, in order to fulfil the promise. It's made from the threads your friends wove together.
This item proves that her time in the spirit world was not just a dream. But what is the significance of this hair tie? We believe it is her connection to the spirit world. Zeneba explains that the hair tie will protect her, meaning that it contains magic. The glittering at the end when Chihiro returns to the human world further reinforces the fact that the hair tie contains some kind of magic. Also there is the possibility of Haku entering the human world, as he has done once before.
How the portal opened in the first place is a mystery, but the movie gives us a suggestion that there is in fact more than one portal.
Looking back to the beginning of the movie when they first enter the spirit world, Chihiro and her family enter through a tunnel beside two other tunnels. This could mean that there are in fact, other ways into the spirit world. Haku has been released from his shackles and he is no longer bound to a certain place, which means he is now a free spirit. As Haku is a river spirit, perhaps he can only move where there is water.
After all, he promised. Extra There is also a rumoured ending that was originally only released in Japan, along with the original release of the DVD before it was translated to English. I'm glad to see you again, even if you won't remember me from our first encounter, I was rather different then" the Lady said, her voice so soft a normal human would have to strain their ears to hear.
Haku didn't remember her at all. I was the main river from where yours was born from, so let's just say I'm like your mother, of sorts. You're all grown up; I feared what might have happened to you after they dried the river. Mine still flows but I have grown apart from it, in a sense.
It's still a part of me but I've lived long enough to take other duties and live far away. I hope you stay for a while, Akaiku will show you to a room and we shall talk more later, I'll send Kashi to Yubaba to tell her you'll be back tomorrow or after" she announced calmly, always smiling as she motioned to a raven perched on a branch of a small tree on the corner of the room, starting to turn to leave. I can't stay, I have something I need to do Lady Okinawa.
I deeply apologize for the rush but I must leave" Haku said, almost losing his posture. Lady Okinawa smiled wistfully and handed Haku what looked like a fan made of rigid pure white feathers. I do hope you come visit me sometime, my dear, it's been a long while" she said, nodding slowly before leaving.
A girl with two long red pigtails entered not long after, her yellow eyes seemed to glow as she showed a toothy grin and held a black ribbon to him. If you cut it, one half is connected to the other" the redhead said. Haku took the silky ribbon in his hand and thanked the girl. Hope you come back, brother" Haku knew there were many dragons but he'd never thought of them as family. It was a warm friendly environment, one full of luxury, no wonder many people seemed to speak of the Lady with envy.
Now for the hard part of his journey, Chihiro would be by the gate by now. The place looked the same as always. Sure, more vegetation had grown around again but it was mainly the same.
- 5 Reasons Why Chihiro and Haku from Spirited Away Will Meet Again
Not the same as when she first beheld it. She remembered, the path had been clear and the building had still bore its red paint, free of moss, a brand new building as her father said. When they had left the spirit world behind, the building had all been covered in moss and the paint was gone, the building was timeworn and almost in ruins, as it was now. Sometimes she hoped she'd find it as it had been the first time, but that never happened. Just to find the path again had been a challenge.
It seems fate had really wanted them to get off course that day. Many times had she crossed the tunnel to find the place full of cobwebs and dust, the walls and ceiling looking like they were about to fall apart. The windows were broken and dull, unlike the lovely colors she remembered. The benches were gone. All in all, it was a sad sight. More so was the fact that when she backtracked to the little town of restaurants all she found were more ruins and where the bathhouse should have been there was a wide lake.
Chihiro had given up on wishful thinking, she knew in her heart she wasn't meant to go back but it still hurt she would never see them again. Sighing, she took the backpack and moved towards the tunnel. Chihiro She stopped and remained still. That voice, she knew that voice. It was deeper but it was still that same voice. She turned around but didn't see anything. Had it been her imagination? Was her mind playing tricks to her now? But then she saw him.
They both laughed as they came into contact. He sure had missed her. He buried his face into her hair, relishing the feeling. She smelled just the same, she looked practically the same yet she had grown. I truly hadn't noticed" she said, smiling lightly. The silliest things come out of your mouth" that made her smile. This isn't just a dream is it?
He shook his head. Oh how she had anticipated seeing him again but she never thought it'd feel so good.Chihiro x Haku - Spirited Away (2001)
Haku was a spirit but he seemed more mature, somewhat grown, his hair now around the middle of his back. But I'm sure you would like to know how everyone's faring" he said, holding her hand and pushing her towards a patch of grass, sitting himself as he pulled her down with him.
She smiled and listened intently, making a comment here and there, laughing, smiling. She shared the tale of her own experiences of the last six years and was happy to see Haku was listening to her as if she was saying the most interesting things there could be. His attention was solely focused on her as he smiled on. Haku's expression fell and he frowned. I still have another four years of servitude until Yubaba will discuss with me the ending of my contract. I probably won't see you for another few years but I assure you I promise to see you again.
Just don't think I've forgotten, no matter how long it'll take me" he said, holding both her hands and staring into her eyes. I never stopped believing I'd see you again, I just really wished it didn't take much longer" she smiled "oh and when you get back to them tell Kamaji I know he has some soot balls following me and Zeniba that her shikigami are also noticeable. Well, I notice but no one else does" Haku smiled. Until we meet again" Haku said, standing up. Chihiro knew he was going to leave and in a thoughtless move she grabbed him midway and made him stumble on top of her.
Haku was taken aback with the move but caught himself in time not to crush the girl under him. He looked into her eyes as he saw a blush creeping onto her face.
Chihiro knew she was blushing. Gods, her heart was beating so loudly she almost swore Haku would be able to hear it ramming against her ribcage.
Why did she do that? But Haku's face didn't change, his expression blank as he gathered himself and stood again, helping the girl up. Haku smiled and looked into her eyes one last time before turning and transforming. Chihiro stayed looking as the dragon moved swiftly and graceful into the blue sky until he was out of sight.
Now, Chihiro wasn't ignorant, she knew boys blushed if she did what she just did, if they had any interest in her, that is, but Haku didn't even react, just stood up as if nothing happened. If it weren't for that smile as he acknowledged her apologies she could have believed it actually hadn't. Yet first she had to figure why she did it at all and why she was expecting anything out of it. But she already knew the answer, had known for some time now.
She was in love.

She knew it didn't matter anyway, she and Haku were worlds apart, she cherished their friendship above all else. She decided she'd move on and be able to keep what was between them without ruining it.
How could a river spirit like Haku ever feel the same way anyway?
