Awesome: Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea

  • It also comes as a moment of heartwarming, but Ponyo running across fish for the first time in human form, is pretty awesome.
  • The entire tsunami sequence is just breathtaking.
  • The exact moment when you realize the animation is hand drawn.
  • As the ocean begins to engulf the land and Lisa and Sosuke try to escape the oncoming tsunami, Ponyo is seen chasing them, running on the tops of waves shaped like giant fish to a "Ride of the Valkyries"-esque version of the theme.
  • Any time Ponyo turns human.
