I have already watched this amazing movie for several times in different languages. Its musics are so romantic and peaceful. Even watched a lot, I still could not understand completely the emotion of Director, and what he wants to show in this movie. I believe that's because the background of the culture and ages.

THIS IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE ANIME MOVIE, AND COMES VERY CLOSE AS MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME. It is sooo breathtaking and beautiful, sooo amazing and alive, sooo extremely wonderful. It is almost flawless-the characters are very well-defined and life-like, the dialogue is wonderful, the scenery is gorgeous, and the story is magical. This is one of Miyasaki's best, and if you're an avid anime/Miyasaki fan and you haven't watched this anime YOU ARE MISSING AN ENTIRE WORLD OF AWESOME. If you have seen this, I recommend the book. Although the two are quite different (though they have the same basic story line), the book is just as wonderful as the movie, in the "book-ish" sort of way. Miyazaki took Dianna Wynne Jones's classic story and brought it to life-with his own little touch. Sophie is very relateable, and Howl is so dashing and charming that after I first saw this, I couldn't think of anything but Howl for over a month! Beautiful, breathtaking, magical, mysterious, funny, amazing, and...JUST AWESOME. WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!! YOU WILL REGRET IT IF YOU DON'T!!! HOWL AND SOPHIE ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my favorite animated movies~!!!! Just think it's the most beautiful adult romance story ( by adult, meaning the characters' age..
And like all the other MIYAZAKI's films, the scenes and music are just beautiful - breathtaking in fact for this one. Vivid colors blend in seamlessly with the romantic plot - what more can you ask for?!
PS: Watch it in Japanese - it'd feel closer to the film, strangely

every time i watch this movie i just go into a trance and end up watching it over and over again. The art in this film is just amazing. This is one of the best movies EVER!!!

This is definitely up there with my favorite movies of all time and is definitely my favorite Studio Ghibli movie! The characters are original and quite funny at times (There's no point in living if I can't be beautiful!), the story is great, and the visuals are spectacular! (Not to mention the music) The entire movie is really charming and just a great watch for everyone!

OMG! THIS IS AN AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME... you get it.

Violence: only a little fighting, but there is bombing from warships- and a bit of Howl's blood every now and then
