Almost ten years ago my all time, and childhood, favorite movie hit theaters. Walt Disney’s “Ponyo” had its box office debut on April 14, 2009. The movie follows a friendship between five-year-old Sosuke and Ponyo, the daughter of the king of the sea. Ponyo is originally a goldfish, but no ordinary one. She has all the magic of the sea at her disposal. She turns into a human and arrives at the front steps of Sosuke and his mother’s house, eager to form a friendship with the boy she had seen from the sea. However, her being a fish princess with magical water powers on dry land sets the balance off, even causing a tsunami.

The film was written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, and although it isn’t known as one of his best works, it did well in the box office, grossing over 15 million dollars. “Ponyo” has a 91% on “Rotten Tomatoes” with a 83% audience score. I grew up watching this movie, I was six when it came out, and still watch it to this day. Sure, i’ve been laughed at by my friends for being a 15 year old obsessed with a children’s anime, but do I really care? Nope. It’s just that good.
