Comic 724 – “Thank you, Hayao Miyazaki”Posted on September 4, 2013 by Errol • 4 Comments Errol: His latest film is playing at the TIFF. I wish I could go, there’s no way I would be able to get in though. Oh well, I’m patient. I’ll wait until it’s out in theatres. Debs: I kind of wondered why you hadn’t mentioned his retirement up until now.

Google says TIFF = Toronto International Film Festival.
Is his latest film still From Up on Poppy Hill?
His latest film is called “The Wind Rises” ^_^
My friend (nicknamed “Bro”) has a theory that even if he does retire this time, that he won’t be able to stay home, but will be at “work” more often than he is now.
Having tried to teach myself Japanese not once, but twice, I may be able to offer some input on the whole honorific thing.
San=gender neutral, probably the most commonly used
Kun=for males of your age or younger, though as you reach into adulthood most just use -san instead
Chan=for females your age or younger or very young boys, again as you become an adult most will switch to -san for their female colleagues
Dono=used for samurai warriors, now obsolete but still awesome
Usually you drop the honorific if you’re best friends or a family member, though with younger siblings or your own kids -chan is still pretty commonly used.
