Princess Mononoke is a phenominal movie. At first i thought it was going to be another one of those childish japanese animes like spirited away or my neighbor totoro, but as soon as the movie started a wild boar demon burst out of the woods and attacks the emishi clan village. Ashitaka ( the protanginist) is a prince of the emishi clan who’s warriors were almost completly whipped out by a currupt emporer. Ashitaka shoots the boar demon straight in the face with an arrow. Before the demon dies he puts a curse on ashitaka which gives him superhuman strength, but there’s a downside. The village oracle reads ashitaks future and tells him he will die slow and painfully, but there might be hope if he travels west to the land of spirits and gods.
When he gets there he enters a town that produces iron and is called, ” iron town”. The people of the town are tearing down a forest inhabited by spirit gods. One of the gods is morro, a wolf god who found a baby and raised her as her own and is known as Princess Mononoke. They attack the village only to be stopped by Ashitaka.
