French[edit]

The article mentions this: Le Roi et l'oiseau (The King and the Mockingbird), which seems odd to me. Is that the proper title of that work in English? Because "oiseau" just means "bird" in French, it's not specific to any particular type. But I also realize that titles don't always translate exactly, so I don't know if it's correct or a mistranslation because I'm not familiar with that work.

Famous[edit]

one of the most famous? i don't think he is as famous as miyasaki and otomo...

He isn't, but if your Japanese or French, he's very widely known. Grave of the Fireflies is also famous in the United States at least among film buffs, and anime fans.

-Neilworms

I actually dispute this claim, he has a wide following in Japan and the U.S. He isn't as popular with the younger generation, but he definitely has a wide following. WebYoungProgrammerMsg me 17:03, 1 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Grave of the Fireflies is very famous among anyone who knows much about anime. I'd say that makes him well known.

Text rewrite[edit]

The text could do with a rewrite by a native English speaker… —Liyang 13:13, 1 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree, but I lack the time to do it right now. But I will consider rewriting it in the near future. This article is very difficult to follow. WebYoungProgrammerMsg me 17:01, 1 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Maybe you're still busy? :-) No problem, as I'm in the midst of producing a respectable article here, building upon the stuff on various wikipedias plus a couple of external sources. In due time, I plan on translating the stuff (back) to enwp, if no other Swedish-speaking wikipedian volunteers… :-)--Paracel63 (talk) 19:37, 5 August 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Filmography cleanup[edit]

I just made a major cleanup on the works section, reorganized and corrected the lists, removed redundant information and links to untranslated pages, changed the filmography to meet Wikipedia's standards. I think we can remove the disclaimer now? Kumagoro-42 16:17, 16 March 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kumagoro-42 (talkcontribs)

Obit links to help improve:[edit]

Variety, Hollywood Reporter, Chicago Tribune, Japan Times, Animation Magazine, Guardian, AV Club. Hoping NYTimes drops an obit too. --Masem (t) 04:03, 6 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

One thing that needs sourcing[edit]

There was this bit in the lede that I had to comment out because I cannot find its source as a quote According to Hayao Miyazaki, "Music and study are his hobbies". He was born in the same town as fellow director Kon Ichikawa, while Japanese film giant Yasujirō Ozu was raised by his father in nearby Matsusaka. Please note that you will find this phrasing on MANY sites that simply duplicate WP's content, so I simply removed it until whomever might know better can find a better source. It might be a video or the like that I'm not aware of. --Masem (t) 17:51, 7 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
