After this flight I’m retiring. After this flight I’m retiring. After this flight I’m retiring. That’s right. Otherwise we’d be in trouble.

This may sound ridiculous, but I’ve had staff tell me they have no idea what’s going on in my films. When we were making Spirited Away, even I didn’t know. The way I see it, we may never understand them. What does one know about this world?

When we were a subsidiary of Tokuma Shoten, we didn’t fully understand that company. We were fine with that, so why worry about understanding the films? The world isn’t simple enough to explain in words. Can you feel my pent-up rage?

And women ask, how could a man understand how a woman feels?
Those subtle nuances. Kiki’s emotions felt so real. It was pretty transparent to me. Say, why couldn’t Jiji speak at the end? Sometimes we become speechless. When they’re together at the end, there’s nothing to say.

There’s a lot going on here, and it’s very beautiful, and heart-wrenching.
