** From a Doylist perspective, the purpose of the crazy-driving scene was to establish that she's really ''good'' at it. This comes in handy during the tsunami scene.

** Ponyo is a ''magic fish child''. I just assumed that she magically knew the name of every single fish species that ever existed, just because of her origin.

*** I thought that the main issue was "You cannot be human and magic at the same time." Ponyo was a human with magic powers, and that's not allowed. But all she has to do is choose one or other other, and then everything will be fine. Soske's love inspired Ponyo to give up her magic permanently, and that saved the world. So even if something happened to Soske later on, the world wouldn't be doomed again, because Ponyo would still lack magic.

** Well, considering it's a movie about a ''five-year old boy and his basically equivalent aged friend''... I think the best CD you're going to get is from Ponyo's dad going from hating all humans to letting Ponyo stay with her human friend. But, really, the kids are ''"five"''- cut them some slack. XD

** [[WildMassGuessing Who knows?]] [[BeenThereShapedHistory Maybe Ponyo brought back the Coelacanth]]?



** To answer your questions in the order they were asked. 1. The mix wasn't ready to use yet, he wanted to wait until the well was full on his own time. 2. He wasn't gonna dump it, he specifically said when they well gets full the new age begins. In other words earth would be screwed the second he filled the well to the brim. 3. Fujimoto used to be human before he married the Goddess of Mercy.

* Remember Lisa criticizing Fujimoto for spraying what she didn't know was 'the purest ocean water'? Why is it in Japanese, they translate it to "insecticide", but in the English dub, they say "weed killer"? Do they think [[ViewersAreMorons we can't wrap our minds around the word]]?

** It's a Miyazaki flick, main characters are always driving like maniacs, be it a car here, [[KikisDeliveryService a broomstick]] or Fujimoto's boat.
