Comics: Hayao Miyazaki as the Cat "Meowzaki"

This is just too good to pass up: a comic rendition of Hayao Miyazaki as a fussy house cat. There have been a million jokes about the director's on-again, off-again dalliances with retirement. It's almost customary to issue threats after the completion of the latest feature film. And, still, Miyazaki-san always sneaks back inside for another go.

The second comic is a little more sly and subtle, and a nice bit of cultural commentary. The line is a direct quote by Miyazaki from last year's NHK TV special, in which he was shown a disturbing piece of computer animation by some over-eager students. They expected praise; he proceeded to give them the riot act instead.

"Meowzaki" was created by I have the name right? I discovered these on the Buta Connection forums, which is published in France. If you have any questions, ask them. Better yet, just visit Boulet's Twitter page and skip the middleman. Ask for more "Meowzaki" comics!
