    Default Princess Mononoke

    This is my all-time favorite movie; even among the rest of Miyazaki's amazing films this one stands out as something very special and sacred to me. If anyone knows of any similar films not by Miyazaki that evoke the mood of this masterpiece feel free to recommend.

    Here are my estimates as to the characters types:

    Ashitaka: INFJ 1w9 sx/so RCOAI
    San: ISFP 1w2? 8w9? cp 6? sx/sp RLUEN
    Eboshi: INTJ 8w9 so/sp? RCOEN
    Jigo: ESTP 3w2 sp/so SCoEI
    Moro: ENTJ 8w9 sp/sx RCOEN
    Otokko: ISFJ 6w5 sp/so RCUeN
    Koroku: ESFP 7w6 sp/so SLUAx
    Toki: ESTJ 8w7 so/sp SCOAN
    Gonza: ESTJ cp 6w7 sp/so SLUEN

    What do you think? Feel free to discuss the movie, the characters types, or other Miyazaki films and their characters.

    I like Miyazaki, but my favorites are Spirited Away (captures my childhood feelings pretty well) and Porco Rosso (the only thing I've ever seen twice in one day)

    Could you elaborate why you like Mononoke Hime? I was going to suggest Mushishi but then I saw that you're already using a pic of Ginko as your avatar

    I fucking hate that movie. But Ashitaka was ISTJ, Mononoke INFP and the woman who leads the village ENTJ, at least I remember that.

    Princess Mononoke is my favorite Miyazaki film. I agree with most of your typings, but I'd change Lady Eboshi to ENTJ. She was more than a little megalomaniacal and aggressive, and I think that's more indicative of ENTJ than INTJ. I agree that Ashitaka is INFJ, San is ISFP, Jigo is ESTP, and Gonza is ESTJ.

    I don't know about Moro or Toki. The latter seems kind of like an F.

    (@21%) Spirited Away and Porco Rosso are my favorites too. And Howl’s. Those three (and Mononoke) are the only ones I’ve watched repeatedly.


    I haven’t seen Monoke in a few years, but the list in the op looks agreeable to me. The only one that stands out is Lady Eboshi, who (in agreement with others) seems more ENTJ to me. I have a hard time pinning types to most Miyazaki characters, for some reason, but here are a few more guesses.


    Chihiro/Sen ISFJ (very)
    Haku INxJ
    Lin ExFP

    Sophie also seems very ISFJ to me

    My absolute favorite is Nausicaa (an ENFJ character, I think.)

    Yay! Porco Rosso is seriously underrated, IMO

    I love Spirited Away as well; it's easily my second favorite Miyazaki film, and I also identify with the movie's themes as they relate to my childhood. Mononoke Hime and Spirited Away are a step above the other Miyazaki films IMO, especially the music. However, I must admit that I've never seen Porco Rosso; I'm not particularly fond of anthropomorphism, pigs, old planes, the time period of the movie, or it's overall style from what I've seen, but I'll give it try sometime. And you're right, Mushishi does evoke many of those tranquil, ethereal moods found in nature like Mononoke Hime does as well.

    As for why I love Princess Mononoke? I've always been drawn to man vs nature themes, and I love wolves, so it was easy for me to identify with San and the forest. I am also fascinated by ancient Japan and Japanese legends and culture, so the setting and time period is perfect. Ashitaka's journey to the west in search of salvation and knowledge evokes the type of archetypal Hero's Journey that I've always been inspired by, when a young man leaves his home bound for unknown lands with only his weapons, provisions, and mount, never intending to return. I also enjoy the many silent, peaceful moments in the film that simply show scenes of the forest, kodamas, or travelers moving without speaking. The scene in which Ashitaka first sees the forest spirit from afar while filling his bowl with water and everything is silent never fails to leave me with this tranquil feeling.

    The music is also amazing; The Legend of Ashitaka and Mononoke Hime in particular are amazing and perfectly match the overall spirit of the story as well as the specific scenes they appear in, I listen to and play them often. Also, IMO both the sub and dub are excellent; I know some are of the opinion that Claire Danes as San and Billy Bob Thornton as Jigo were miscast for the English dub but to me their voices bring out elements of each character that I think exist but aren't as easily recognized when voiced by a Japanese speaker, especially for native English speakers. Claire Danes' harsh raspiness adds to San's intensity and raw aggression, while Billy Bob Thornton's western accent adds to Jigo's garrulous nature and gives more humour, even if it may not have been entirely intended. So yeah, pretty much everything is awesome; The art style, the Kodamas, The Forest Spirit/Nightwalker dynamic, just the right amount of blood, the ending... I could go on...
