Masao Maruyama of Madhouse promised Satoshi Kon that they'd finish Dreaming Machine for him, and then made the same promise to his wife after his death.
Nothing's happening due to lack of funding.
The Japanese animation industry should burn.
It's ridiculous that in this day and age anime are still attributed to directors. The ones who make the show are the writers and animators. The directors have absolutely nothing to do with it.
Miyazaki hasn't been part of the anime industry for decades. He just did his own thing in Ghibli.
No, he is not and was never the most important Japanese anime director, unless you're speaking from a completely normal-fag point of view.
People who when they say they like anime speak about wholesome family movies and not the late-night stuff that /a/ is about.
People like the Oscar team.
You mean like every retarded youtuber?
The late-night stuff /a/ talks about is mostly shit, you know.
Miyazaki had a string of brilliance in the 80s, all the way until Spirited Away, which is arguably one of the best animated films ever.
There are tons of more books, academic articles on Miyazaki than anyone else. He's the most well-known, most financially successfully, and the most critically successfully. It is hard to argue against objective criteria like that, anon.
Listen, I'm not saying he is a bad director or anything.
I am saying, he's not part of the industry.

And none of that matters, because, as I pointed out at the very beginning and he himself has made clear, he doesn't want to and shouldn't be associated with the anime industry.
There is just one industry (plus Ghibli).
Call it whatever you want. The point is that he isn't part of it. Other studios make family stuff too, every now and then, but they can't write their names underneath them like it's a seal of quality because they usually deal in otaku stuff.
