Over this week, my friend and i were watching movies created by studio ghibli. This particular movie named The Wind Rises struck my fancy for more than one reason, for one it was unlike anything they’ve done before, and the second reason is because it told the story of Jiro Horikoshi in a fictitious biographical way. Before watching this movie i didnt know who he was, but after watching it and looking up information about him. I learned that he was a japanese aircraft engineer during World War II, most known for the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. While the movie wasnt 100% biographical, it did have enough biographical information to show some insight as to the person, the time, and the place.
