    Nearly everyone of Miyazaki's movies have a deeper message to it. Mononoke was Miyazaki's later echo of Nausicaa - both of them deliver a similar message.

    Anyways - I rather liked the harmonious ending to mononoke. Come to think of it, Miyazaki rarely showed explicit romantic scenes.

    Similar message........ similar characters........ Nausicaa seemed to be a reincarnation of San in a different age and time.

    To be honest, I didnt even notice the ending......... the focus was more on Miyazaki's intended message. But now that I think about it, I definitely agree with Chief and the others. San and Ashitaka have gone back to help totally different environments to grow further, but are still connected to each other. It wasnt like it was an ultimate goodbye or anything...... if anything, it was just mroe of an obstacle to their relationship.

    i do agree that it would have made it more cheesy with them staying together forever.
    BUt i don't really remember the ending that well. But it was still a cool movie

    Re: Princess Mononoke ending

    A suitable ending, in my opinion. After the breathtaking events that lead to the climax, I think Miyazaki was right in mellowing down the pace to the simple ending, perhaps that's his idea of emphasizing the message of his story more than the story itself to make its influence last longer to the viewer. Simple endings, I notice, have aways been his style, well, mostly at the least. And if I think about it, I don't think Ashitaka and San would have been ready at once for a relationship right after the emotional changes that have happened in their lives and to the world around them. It was quite natural that their first concern would be to help their "people" to live again and look forward to their hopeful future.

    Ashitaka cannot go back to his village anyway because of his sentence. A future between San and Ashitaka is indeed a possibility, only, it can't happen so soon. I guess we'll never know, for the movie does not tell anymore.

    The ending was pretty good. I'm not suprised ashitaka went back to help rebuild the iron town. After all, he had made many friends there and if there was no iron town where would all the women and men go live? Besides he said that he would visit san so they're still together. It was a great ending.
