Hayao Miyazaki Working on a Sengoku-jidai Manga

Studio Ghibli’s Toshio Suzuki participated in a Japanese variety show this weekend and leaked information about the latest project by retired anime director and screenwriter Hayao Miyazaki.

Suzuki said: “I think he will serialize a manga. From the beginning, he likes drawing about his favorite things. That’s his stress relief.”

The producer also commented that “[sengoku-jidai no chanbara] is what he is drawing now. He’ll get angry if I talk too much. Let’s stop talking about this.”

Suzuki-sensei also talked about Miyazaki’s probable manga being serialized, but did not want to discuss it any further as his colleague an friend Miyazaki will “get angry” is he talked too much.

For now, the most anticipated project by Studio Ghibli is Isao Takahata’s Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (image), expected to premiere in Japanese theatres on 23rd November 2013. Meanwhile, the last Hayao Miyazaki project and most recent Ghibli movie, Kaze Tachinu, was shortlisted for an Oscar nomination.
