Princess Mononoke

UPDATE 12/31/22 at 12:03pm: I added the video above since the two videos below were removed by YouTube.

Here is a 4 minute video clip, with music by Breaking Benjamin, song title “Blow Me Away”. I have added the 2 minute movie trailer at the bottom. Inquiring minds want to know...

I've received several emails from HPer's asking what mononoke means and why I chose this screen name. Princess Mononoke is the title of one of my all time favorite movies and my alter ego. This is one of Hayao Miyasaki's anime productions. It is a movie about corruption and greed. It portrays the pursuit of capitalism at all cost, a battle between good and evil, light and darkness. I highly recommend this movie to people of all ages. Enjoy the video!
You can not alter your fate.
However, you CAN rise to meet it if you choose!

The following snippit has been taken from the Hayao Miyasaki website.

Set during the Muromachi Period (1333-1568) of Japan, Mononoke Hime is a story about a mystic fight between the Animal Gods of the forest and humans.

On the side of the Animal Gods is San (Mononoke Hime), a human girl raised by the wolf god Moro. On the side of the humans is Lady Eboshi, building a kingdom for oppressed people by cutting down the forest for her iron-making operation.

In the middle of this fierce fighting for survival, Ashitaka, an Emishi boy, struggles to find a way for both sides to co-exist. But the fighting just becomes more and more bloody and all hope seems to be lost...
