I wanted to share these two videos from Japanese TV, featuring lengthy interviews with Hayao Miyazaki and Hideaki Anno on The Wind Rises, which is now playing in US theaters. Thanks to some dutiful fan translations, English subtitles are included on these videos. Simply click the "CC" button to turn them on.
Hideaki Anno, best known as the mastermind behind Neon Genesis Evangelion, was given the lead vocal role in The Wind Rises. His relationship with Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli stretch back to the 1984 Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, and continues to this day. Anno has collaborated with the Ghibli on a couple short films, and the studio supported him on one or two of his live-action films.
I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll let these videos speak for themselves.
