One of my favorite anime movies from Studio Ghibli is The Cat Returns. To quote a line from the movie which the character Baron said to main character a schoolgirl named Haru: “Whenever somebody creates something with all of their heart, then that creation is given a soul”.
It is an inspiring quote for me and I agree with what this line says. If you’re doing something that you love, firstly just thinking about it gives you much energy. For me, my passion is drawing, and I put my heart and passion into everyone of my creations; be it the cool guys or the pretty girls that I draw.
The Baron also goes on say that the cat bureau where he lives is a refuge for creations; this website (wayoftheartchemist) then, is refuge or home for my artistic creations of manga characters and illustrations.
(I’d like to think that I’ve given life and soul to these girls)
I’ll leave you with one more quote from the cat returns; it is a message in the story through out the film is trying to send out. I’m trying to live by these words.
“Always believe in yourself. Do this and no matter where you are, you will have nothing to fear”.
– Baron Humbert Von Gikkingen
P.S. I recommend The Cat Returns to all animation lovers, its a fun and interesting modern fairytale/adventure film!
