Hayao Miyazaki Fights Deforestation

The renowned Hayao Miyazaki joined protesters in a successful attempt to stop the removal of a .37 acre patch of trees near the Fuchi no Mori forest.

The surrounding forest is known as the scenery that inspired Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro film.

Ray’s Take: I love trees and I really don’t like seeing them destroyed but when I read this news, I couldn’t help but picture Miyazaki with his beard and hair grown out and thick black rim glasses wearing a psychedelic shirt and sandals and doing a peace sign, while hugging a tree, then out of nowhere, Orcs and Trolls start axing his ass and Mononoke Hime rides on a wolf and start stabbing him repeatedly…It’s same feeling when I see animal activists getting their asses pierced by a bull’s horns…XD

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
