Hayao Miyazaki Compares iPad Use to Masturbation

Hayao Miyazaki is the greatest animator alive. And he does not like the iPad. In an interview in the July issue of "Neppuu", the Studio Ghibli published pamphlet, the famed animator does not pull any punches when discussing the iPad, or what he calls the "game machine-type thing" that people are "stroking with strange gestures".

So he likes the iPad?

Edit: He doesn't...shame.

That is hilarious, stroking with strange gestures!

With that said, it is ironic that we can't see his work unless we use technology. You may have your wish, but then we wouldn't know who you are!

And both are good....real good. XD

I totally understand what the old dude is saying. When I start to masturbate it feels good but when I am finish I feel nothing but dissapointment.

When I first got the ipad I felt good but after I used it I felt dissapointed.

or he could mean that the ipad is as addictive as masturbation : )

Is electricity up next on his no no list? Why is he on a train if he hates tech? He knocks technology that helped him become what he is today.... On and on it goes...

I have worked with two different artists in the past that have worked as freelancers for him in the past.And they both called him out as quite the miserable angry bastard...Along with being very cold...

And while he does have a totally different angle/vision animation-story wise,he is not the best animator...

Pretty big hypocrite too....While not directly involved,he still has his very own studio working on Nintendo DS and PS3 games....

Doing things in moderation never entered his mind...
