A wonderful meeting, or a beautiful thing can exist. We depict hatred, but it is to depict that there are more important things. We depict a curse, to depict the joy of liberation. What we should depict is, how the boy understands the girl, and the process in which the girl opens her heart to the boy. At the end, the girl will say to the boy, ‘I love you, Ashitaka. But I cannot forgive humans.’ Smiling, the boy should say, ‘That is fine. Live with me.’”  ( — Hayao Miyazaki)
