20 Day Studio Ghibli Challenge

Day 8 ▶ Favorite Secondary Character & Why: Fujimoto

At first, I really didn’t like Fujimoto, but after looking back and rewatching Ponyo, I actually really like his character. The reason why I didn’t like him at first was because he reminded me of my own father, of his obsession with protecting his daughter, but I realized how hard it must’ve been for Fujimoto to deal with the ocean as well as his daughter and to learn to let her go, and I love that aspect of him. He’s truly caring, he’s absolutely dorky, and he’s just an adorable character in the end.
