Synopsis:

With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?

Both Howl's and Princess Mononoke have a sense of hidden passion and mystery mixed in them. The hero and heroine try to battle the forces of evil together, and overcome the powers threatening them. Both movies are filled with magic and strange forces controlling the world in which the main characters live.

The main characters in each of these series face an opposition to the fact that they are in love. There is a constant driving force that is trying to separate each pair; what they believe, and the area in which they live, separate them. Romeo X Juliet takes place in a gothic setting, whereas Princess Mononoke is more rural and deals with a mystical aspect of the world.

Spirited Away

Spirited Away

After Chihiro's family mysteriously turn into pigs, she is thrown into a surreal world of magic and fantasy.

Both Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke are fun-filled tales of adventure and excitement, daring escapades and rigorous tasks.  There is a semblance of an undercurrent of something more than friendship between the main characters, and a whole lot of magic thrown in!
