The Simpsons paid a touching tribute to legendary Japanese animator Miyazaki


MASTER ANIMATOR Hayao Miyazaki announced last year that he would be retiring from the film world with his last movie, The Wind Rises.

Miyazaki redefined the world of animation with his beautifully-rendered and whimsical epics, many of which became cult classics internationally.

He is best known for 2001′s Oscar-winning Spirited Away, which was the biggest-grossing film in Japanese history and is frequently described as one of the greatest animated movies of all time.
