VENICE (AFP) - Japanese animation and manga master Hayao Miyazaki is retiring, the head of his production company said on Sunday at the Venice film festival, where his last work Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) was being shown.

"Miyazaki has decided that Kaze Tachinu will be his last film, and he will now retire," said Mr Koji Hoshino, head of Studio Ghibli co-founded by Mr Miyazaki.

Mr Hoshino did not give any further details, saying only that Mr Miyazaki would hold a briefing in Tokyo. The director himself was not at the film festival.

The 72-year-old Mr Miyazaki has won hearts and accolades around the world in a career that began in the 1960s.


Truly the end of an era.

he has given us some amazing films but everyone deserves to rest.

I imagine he'll still keep his hand involved a little though. Man can't quit what he loves cold turkey

... I can't believe that someone with his talent would just STOP completely. I could see why he would stop with drawings and whatnot though. The man is close to 80 for god's sake. His hands probably hurt like crazy when he picks up a cup of tea in the morning.I don't think he's going to retire from the business altogether, but I definitely think he should retire from drawing, or at least take an extended hiatus.
