    "Is he dead?" "No, he's fine. He's just throwing a tantrum." This part of the film has so many wonderful quotes! 😂

    I watch the anime before I read the manga and it's basically the same.

She is defiant though, and sets out to seek her fortune not as a pretty young girl but as a creaky old crone after the Witch of the Waste has cursed her. She is essentially very nice, sweetly helping the trapped dog and the broken scarecrow, but her niceness also causes a problem if not-niceness is actually required, such as when she lets Miss Angorian into the house in an effort to prove she is too nice to be jealous of Howl's interest in her. Sophie is in love with Howl even if she won't admit it. She is a loyal family member and loves her sisters although she has judged her stepmother harshly and tried to make amends for that. Sophie is a character whose happy ending is well-deserved and appreciated by the reader. *** Wizard Howl Welshman Hywell Jenkins (also known by the more magical last name of Pendragon) comes from a pleasant and normal family on the Wales-England border and in the earthly world is a good uncle and frustrating brother. He graduated from university with a good degree in witchcraft and went on to become a wizard working in a magical land from which he could still come and go. As Wizard Howl he is rather timid and not entirely happy about becoming the King's Magician but he is an honorable person and does what he has been paid for. He is a womanizer and tends to like the chase more than the capture of the female in question's heart, Sophie being the only girl he remains interested in.Howl is aware that his magic can be used for. Ad as well as good and does not want that to happen which is why he is anxious for the contract between himself and Calcifer to be broken. He puts his own life in jeopardy for Calcifer and turns out to be a thoroughly decent man at the end of the day.

    For some it may be 'just screenshots' from the film, but i love it anyway. The manga has just as much charm as the film. Though I do miss the music.

    Die Comics sind eins zu eins eine Adaption vom Film. Und da ich das häufiger in den Kommentaren/ Reviews gesehen habe: Der Film ist genauso verwirrend und abrupt zu Ende wue die Comics. Das ist demnach kein Kritikpunkt an den Comics sondern am Film. Aber wenn man die Geschichte und das Ende auf sich wirken lässt, versteht man es schon irgendwann.

Ich mochte die Comics sehr, da diese in Farbe sind und den Film wiedergeben, zum durchblättern und sich erinnern einfach top. Übrigens sind die Comis durch den farbigen Druck recht schwer. The comics are a one-to-one adaptation of the film. And since I've seen this in the comments/reviews a lot: the movie is just as confusing and abruptly over as the comics. So this is no criticism of the comics but rather of the film. But if you let the story and the ending get to you, you will understand it at some point. I didn't know what the movie was about after the first look either. I liked the comics very much, because they are in color and show the movie, so you can flip through them and remember it. By the way, the comics are quite heavy because of the color print.

    This book was pretty good, it is a really fast read which is kinda normal since it's a graphic novel. I liked a lot, though. It would be nice if they translated the background noise to English instead of keeping it japaneese.

Oh, and I just had to post this: I seriously don't see what's so bad about it!! Oh, Howl, don't be so dramatic, you could never not be beautiful :)

    First time I read a comic version of a movie (not to mention a Miyazaki one). It was very interesting to experience it through this different medium. Comics have a very different way of capturing details and time in a way that movies don't, and I felt that I was able to notice a lot more than I might have than if I had watched it as a movie, because of when "time slowed" (this is what I'll call it when the comic had several blocks of a scene where no one is speaking and they're almost First time I read a comic version of a movie (not to mention a Miyazaki one).

The lack of music and sound also forces one to focus more on the visuals (though I couldn't help imagine the sorts of instrumentals typical to his movies!) Now, addressing the content itself, it was brilliant! As a Miyazaki film, the visuals and story were very creatively imagined and showed much attention to detail. He managed to make the main male supernatural-monster-boy character (as in Spirited Away) quite charming. I was in another world.

    The manga version of Howl's Moving Castle recreates Miyazaki's film, not the book, so readers of the book who haven't seen the movie (and I am one of these people) may find the story line confusing, since there are few parallels between the two. For my money, I thought the book was much stronger. I was initially going to read the entire manga series of the book, but after the first two volumes, I realized I have too much other stuff I'd rather read.

    Admittedly this is where the plot of the movie starts to break down.... In general, this kind of manga is fun because it gives you time to catch the small details of the movie, but the art is, as far as I can tell, taken from the film stills and so is a bit clunky at times in terms of pacing.

    This 4 book series is great. I love it. I like that it reads like a manga book and that it is stills from the movie used as the artwork. I absolutely loved the movie. This volume takes you from the scorched table during breakfast to the meeting with Suliman at the royal palace.

    Are you scared of getting old? Do you believe there are good and bad people in this world? Is fire symbolizes evil to you? Just sit down and watch this animation with open mind and heart like a child.

    Wonderfully done. I love the movie and these books offer you the opportunity to take a closer look and to enjoy the power of the pictures with their fascinating details and wonderful colors.

    The continuing story of Howl and Sophie, with gripping new characters- Madame Suliman and Heen, the asthmatic dog. What's with his haircut?

    Beautiful artwork, wretched story. Weakened the original plot, destroyed characters...the original book is much to be preferred.

    I like that this volume made Howl seem more human compared to what was said about him prior to this.
