::Howl's Moving Castle's Characters::



Michael is Howl's apprentice wizard and became this by accident simply by turning up one day and then never really leaving. He is in love with Sophie's sister Martha who is pretending to be her sister Lettie. He is a decent wizard but is becoming more confused by the more complicated spells and often gets them wrong. He is loyal to Howl and grows to like Sophie over time although he finds her a nuisance when she first moves in. He also finds he

الجزء الاخير يحتوي بعض القبل !! مما يجعلني افكر ماذا سأقول لبنتي التي تقرأ حاليا الجزء الاول
التقييم للاجزاء الاربعة
ممتعة لدرجة اني انهيتها بجلسة رغم وضعي المزري ورغبتي المتدنية في مطالعة اي كتاب
الرسومات ليست باحترافية المانجا
القصة جميلة على افتراض عدم وجود فجوات في الاحداث او قفزات زمنية
تطور الشخصيات هائل وسلس في نفس الوقت
سافكر مليا قبل شراء موفي كوميك مرة اخرى لا لسوءه بل لان الاجمل يفوتني

I thought that it was a really nice closing to the series, and I definitely think it is worth watching and reading.

When everything comes together like that... Dear lord, i just cry. It hits me where it counts. The story has a lot of settings and sparks that make me love it.

Based on stills from the movie - reproduced as per the screenplay.

Die Comics sind eins zu eins eine Adaption vom Film. Und da ich das häufiger in den Kommentaren/ Reviews gesehen habe: Der Film ist genauso verwirrend und abrupt zu Ende wue die Comics. Das ist demnach kein Kritikpunkt an den Comics sondern am Film. Aber wenn man die Geschichte und das Ende auf sich wirken lässt, versteht man es schon irgendwann. Ich wusste nach dem ersten Mal gucken auch nicht worum es im Film geht.
Ich mochte die Comics sehr, da diese in Farbe sind und den Film wiedergeben, zum

Again, this was awesome and i'm really sad that it's finished! I might have to go and read the origional story by Diana Wynne Jones. Which I haven't done yet and probably should have. (view spoiler)

More of a 3.5 rating; Overall felt like this movie was overhyped but the ending made for how I felt early on when watching this.

This 4 book series is great. I love it. I like that it reads like a manga book and that it is stills from the movie used as the artwork. I absolutely loved the movie. This volume takes you from where Sophie tells Markl she won't leave because they are a family through to the end of the story. I just loved Howl and Sophie's story. ...more

I love this story! There is a scene at the end of the book that is not in the movie I've watched. It is where Howl and Sophie fly off together. I am so glad I read this book otherwise I would have not even known about that (Also, I should read the book by Dianna Wynne Jones.) ...more

Mostly just the screen shots of different points in the movie, but this is my favorite movie ever, so.... :)

Beautiful artwork, wretched story. Weakened the original plot, destroyed characters...the original book is much to be preferred.
