Hayao Miyazaki Biography, Version 1 (12/4/91) HAYAO MIYAZAKI BIOGRAPHY, Version 1 (12/4/91) Hayao Miyazaki's father was born in 1915 (?) and is still alive (as of 1989, at least), living in Tokyo. During WWII, he was director of Miyazaki Airplane, which was owned by his brother (Hayao's uncle). This company made the rudders for Zero fighter planes. Hayao's mother was a strict, intellectual woman. Her youngest son, Shirou, once commented that Dola in LAPUTA reminded him of her, not by her outlook, but by her mentality. Arata Miyazaki (Hayao's only older brother) was born in July 1939. Hayao Miyazaki was born on January 5, 1941 in Akebono-cho (town), Bunkyo-ku (district), Tokyo. Yutaka Miyazaki was born in January 1944. Hayao's third brother is Shirou (birthdate unknown). Between 1944 and 1946, the Miyazaki family evacuated to Utsunomiya City and Kanuma City in Tochigi Prefecture. The Miyazaki Airplanes factory was in Kanuma City. From 1947 to 1952, the young Hayao went to three different grade schools. First, he attended first through third grades at a school in Utsunomiya City. Next, he spent the fourth grade at Omiya Elementary School in Suginami-ku, Tokyo, when his family moved back to Suginami-ku. Hayao switched to the brand-new Eifuku Elementary School, which was a new branch of the Suginami-ku school, for the fifth grade. From 1947 to 1955, Hayao's mother was sick in bed with spinal tuberculosis (a total of nine years!). She spent the first few of these years in the hospital. MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO is, in many ways, an hommage to this ordeal. In fact, several critics regarded this anime highly as an "I story" (autobiographical story). Between 1953 and 1955, Hayao graduated from Eifuku Elementary and attended Omiya Junior High. Between 1956 and 1958, Hayao graduated from Omiya Junior High and went on to Toyotama High, a public senior high school. In his third year, he sees the first-ever Japanese feature-length color anime, HAKUJA DEN (Directed by Yabushita Taiji for Toei Douga in 1958), and becomes interested in animation. Hayao decides he wants to become a comic artist but--having previously drawn only planes and battleships--finds he can't draw people. From 1959 to 1962, Hayao graduated from Toyotama High and entered Gakushuin University. There, he majors in economics (with his final thesis being on the theory of Japanese industry), and joins the school's "children's literature research club," which was the closest thing to a comics club in those days. In 1963, Hayao graduated from Gakushuin University, and got a job at Toei Douga (Toei Animation) in April. Once there, he is trained for three months, and becomes an in-betweener. His first assignment is the feature, WATCHDOG BOW WOW, after which he is moved to Toei's first TV series, WOLF BOY KEN. Hayao lived in an apartment in nearby Nerima-ku (in Tokyo) which cost 6,000 yen a month to rent (his monthly salary was 19,500 yen), and yet, soon after entering Toei Douga, there was a union dispute, and Hayao led the demonstrating animators! In 1964, Hayao was the Chief Secretary of Toei Douga's labor union (Isao Takahata was the Vice-Chairman), and began to date fellow animator Akemi Ota. In the fall of 1965, Hayao began to volunteer help to Takahata once Takahata joins the production team on PRINCE OF THE SUN. Thinking that this might be his last chance to work on a feature film before TV takes over, Hayao makes a pact with Takahata (the film's director) and Yasuo Otsuka (the film's animation director) to take as long as it takes to finish PRINCE OF THE SUN together. Hayao marries Akemi Ota (who worked as a key animator on PRINCE OF THE SUN) in October. The newlyweds move to Higashi-Murayama City, in Tokyo. PRINCE OF THE SUN was finally released in 1968. Also that year, Akemi worked on PUSS IN BOOTS, a feature on which Hayao was a key animator. Hayao and Akime Miyazaki's first son was born in January of 1967. In 1969, Akemi contributed to THE FLYING GHOST SHIP, another feature for which Hayao was a key animator. Their second son was born in April of 1969, whereupon the Miyazakis moved to Oizumi-Gekuen, Nerima-ku, Tokyo. This second son eventually went to Sinshu University to study forestry (or was it dendrology?). In 1970, the Miyazakis moved to Tokorozawa City, in Saitama Prefecture. In 1971, Hayao left Toei Douga and joined Takahata and Yoichi Otabe at A-Pro. Hayao traveled to Sweden with Tokyo Movie president Yutaka Fujioka in order to secure the rights to PIPPI LONGSTOCKINGS, but their attempt failed. In June of 1973, the Miyazaki/Takahata/Otabe team quit A-Pro and joined Zuiyo Pictures. In July, Hayao went on location to Switzerland for inspiration as scene designer and scene organizer on HEIDI: GIRL OF THE ALPS. In 1975, Hayao again went on location--this time, to Italy and Argentina--to prepare for THREE THOUSAND MILES IN SEARCH OF MOTHER. 1980 saw Hayao as chief instructor for new animators at Telecom. It is here that he uses his company's name as a pseudonym while directing episodes 145 & 155 of the then-current LUPIN III TV series. The NAUSICAA OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND anime got under way in 1983. In May, Takahata became the film's producer, and Topcraft was chosen as the production studio. Hayao's youngest brother Shirou worked at Hakuhoudo (the second largest advertisement agency in Japan), so it is perhaps not surprising that NAUSICAA was made as a joint venture between Tokuma and Hakuhoudo. In July, Hayao's mother died. She was 71. Hands- on work on the NAUSICAA anime began the following month. In April of 1984, Miyazaki and Takahata's Nibariki (Two-Horse Power) office was created in Suginami-ku, Tokyo. Miyazaki is the senior partner. In 1985, Studio Ghibli was founded in Kichijoji, in Musashino City to produce LAPUTA: CASTLE IN THE SKY. (Topcraft Studio's production manager, Toru Hara, became the manager of Studio Ghibli.) In May, Hayao went on location to Wales to prepare for this new anime. [Thanks to ANIMAG #9 and Atsushi Fukumoto] -- Steven Feldman This biography courtesy of the Hayao Miyazaki Discussion Group .

Isao Takahata Filmography, Revision 3.5 (11/20/91) INTRODUCTION Isao Takahata directed many of the early anime on which Hayao Miyazaki worked in a lesser capacity. Among them are WOLF BOY KEN, PRINCE OF THE SUN, the LUPIN III 1971 TV series, both PANDA KOPANDA shorts, HEIDI: GIRL OF THE ALPS, 3000 LEAGUES IN SEARCH OF MOTHER, and ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. Also, Takahata produced NAUSICAA and LAPUTA, and was Music Director for KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE. On the other side of the coin, Miyazaki produced Takahata's THE STORY OF YANAKAWA CANAL and OMOIDE POROPORO. From Entry #297 of LISTS.NAUSICAA (Re: Assorted things...) by Atsushi Fukumoto (), September 6, 1991: Precisely speaking, Studio Ghibli is the production company of Miyazaki's films, and also GRAVE OF THE FIREFLY and OMOIDE-POROPORO. It was originally founded for production of LAPUTA. (NAUSICAA was produced at Topcraft Studio.) Miyazaki himself is currently the leader of NIBARIKI (Two Horse Powers), which is the office of Miyazaki and Takahata. If you can read kanji, you'll notice that all illustrations reprinted on magazines from Miyazaki's recent works are copyrighted (C) NIBARIKI.
