Wolf Children – My Favorite Anime Film & Why I Love it

Something a Little Different

This article is an adapted version of a script for an oral presentation that I will be giving for one of my business classes. I was tasked to discuss something I have a passion for, so I decided to talk about Wolf Children. The reason I decided to talk about this film is for the following reasons:

  • To challenge my class to explore a topic that they are unfamiliar with. Most members of the class haven’t even seen a Ghibli film, just as a frame of reference.
  • Wolf Children is universally relatable in its themes and ideas. The film is also in English (not that there is much dialog to begin with) which removes a barrier from my audience.
  • The film can be discussed without spoiling it. Additionally, Wolf Children requires no knowledge of anime tropes and conventions. End goal is to recommend the film.
  • I am genuinely passionate about anime (obviously) and wanted to talk about my favorite anime film.

Past that, there are a few guidelines for this article since it isn’t exactly the kind of thing I normally do. This isn’t strictly a review of Wolf Children, more just why I like it so much. I have to assume you don’t know squat about anime and keep the language a bit simpler than normal. There will be some video and images in the article to enhance readability that I am unable to include in my oral presentation (we aren’t allowed to use any media whatsoever). If you enjoy this sort of article and want to see more like it, let me know by leaving a like and comment saying so below. Enjoy! Continue reading
