A great classic created by legend Shotaro Ishinomori which deserves much more that just an hour long adaptation. Created with absolutely mind blowing animation for it's time of release, which played a major part in movie's very short length and condensed plot, "Flying Ghost Ship" tells an extremely interesting story with a potential to be a whole franchise if expanded, but alas. Everything in production is just top notch, epic alarming score, beautiful backgrounds, very simple in style, but masterful animation Hayao Miyazaki himself played a part in.

If there's a definition for classic, a project from Shotaro Ishinomori falls right into it.
