"Intriguing...I enjoyed it enormously.... An attempt to define or codify Miyazaki's cosmology is fascinating in itself, and tells us as much about what we need Miyazaki to be as what he is.

In the process it raises as many interesting questions as it answers."--Helen McCarthy, The Anime Encyclopedia.
