What was the point of this? Is Hayao Miyazaki stupid?

>Two schoolmates become friends and then fall in love while trying to save a historic school building
>Wait turns out they're related long lost siblings and so they can't be in love
>They save the building
>Wait turns out they're not related after all
>Movie ends

??? What kind of an ending is THAT?

        It's based on a shoujo manga just like kiki's delivery service and whisper of the heart
        one of the witters of the movie is also woman

        miyazaki had been obsessed with an idea of making movies based on obscure girly comics

      I still count this as a Miyazaki film
      The art style is practically the same as Hayao's anyway

    The reactionary Miyazaki has long been surpassed by the forward thinker Shinkai

                I ain't the one animating a scene in which a grown man bathes naked with two little girls

                Kinda weird if you ask me

                What's weird is how westerners interpret any but if nudity with sexuality, meanwhile in Japan, bathing together is normal because their society recognizes people are just bathing.

                It's because our culture is constantly bombarded with hypersexuality and porn that when we see nudity that's all we can think of.

                The normalization of porn is to blame.

      Shinkai is garbage. I'm watching Your Name now and it's absolute cringe. Even his most Ghibli esque, Children Who Chase Lost Voices, is bad. Overrated hack.

        He only hated the movie because it puts his ideals into practice and showed that they'd turn Japan into a 70s-Cambodia-tier communist shithole

            miyazaki called it a lie
            >Miyazaki: There is strong criticism of "Grave of the Fireflies. I think it is a lie. First of all, I think that ghosts appear as they are when they die, so they appear scrawny and hungry. Then, the son of a cruiser captain would never starve to death. That is faking the nature of war. He will never starve to death, just as Akiyuki Nosaka never starved to death. Naval officers are sure to bail each other out, and only amongst themselves. Moreover, to be a captain of a cruiser is one of the top elites among Japanese naval officers, so the strength of the unity of the village community is very strong. The mere mention of Kobe being hit by air raids is enough to make any officer in the nearby military district look for the child, even if it wasn't him or her who sent their men to find him or her. The only thing that I can think of is that the child was not a child of the military, but a child of the military. ...... Even if Isao Takahata knew that, it doesn't matter because Akiyuki Nosaka lied about it. I think that's the way war is supposed to appear. So, some people die from bullets, but in the end it is the poor who die.Translated with DeepL.com (free version)

              From what I can tell it's basically Hayao giving his moronic son praise for getting a participation trophy lol
              >Graves
              Sounds like an issue he had with the direction. Autistic and weird but understandable from his perspective. Again, one of us.

            It's well known that Takahata who directed Grave of the Fireflies, Only Yesterday, Princess Kaguya, etc, said Nausicaa is 3/10 and Miyazaki was seething
            Those famous anime directors were all friends and shitting on each other back then

        Goro inserted an OC plot point into Earthsea where the MC Ged murders his father with a short sword because his father was such a domineering perfectionist. That might’ve had something to do with Miyazaki walking out of the premiere.
