This blog also has an English translation.
I am using the translation function, but I am editing based on the text.
It's still hard to read, but if you are interested, please read it.
I think every time, but it is difficult to translate Japanese into English and express my feelings.
I'm confused by the difference in grammar.
"Porco Rosso" is in the top three of Ghibli's works.
For me, who loves airplanes, it may be something special.
On February 8, 2021, Porco's voice actor Shuichiro Moriyama died.
Of course I know too. I was shocked.
One of the people who is absolutely indispensable when talking about "Porco Rosso".
I found a video in memory of Mr. Moriyama who died.
Like Polco, Gina is an important character in the work.
Tokiko Kato acted as her voice actor.
The video is from her channel.
It's better to hear Tokiko's comment than I say anything.
She talks about Mr. Moriyama, including memories of the recording.
She sings "Once in a while, let's talk", which was also used in the ending of the movie, in memory of her.
There are many wise sayings in Porco's line that Mr. Moriyama's too astringent voice speaks.
This will also have his directing effect.
"A flightless pig is just a pig."
This is the most famous word.
In the comments of the video, there were messages from many fans who knew his obituary.
"Did Porco also die leaving Gina behind?"
This comment stuck in my chest.

We pray for Shuichiro Moriyama's soul.
