Jirou Horikoshi, a man with an unwavering passion for aviation, embarks on a remarkable journey. Despite his regrettable nearsightedness, he sets out to pursue aeronautical engineering at the prestigious Tokyo Imperial University, fueled by a resolute ambition to emulate the legendary Italian aviation pioneer, Giovanni Battista Caproni. Little did he know that his arrival in Japan's capital would coincide with the devastating Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, an event that would serve as a catalyst for unprecedented social unrest and turmoil, ultimately leading to Japan's surrender in World War II. As Jirou traverses the tumultuous years preceding the creation of his groundbreaking Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter aircraft, he finds himself tested in ways he could never have anticipated. His relentless pursuit of his dreams propels him forward, even in the face of profound realizations about his inventions' role in the war and the harsh realities of his personal life. With each passing moment, he grapples with an unanswerable conundrum: how much is he truly willing to sacrifice to attain his awe-inspiring vision?


Director Miyazaki Hayao declared that Kaze Tachinu would mark his grand finale in the world of filmmaking. True to Miyazaki's reputation, the movie soared to the top, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2013 with an impressive $113 million at the domestic box office. However, its success did not come without controversy. Kaze Tachinu sparked heated debates across the political spectrum due to its stirring portrait of Horikoshi and its perceived anti-war stance. This cinematic masterpiece garnered an Academy Award nomination, marking Miyazaki's third nod from the prestigious awards committee. The accolades bestowed upon Kaze Tachinu are a testament to its undeniable brilliance. In the year 2013 alone, it claimed numerous prestigious titles. It secured the Best Animated Feature award from distinguished entities like the Alliance of Women Film Journalists, New York Film Critics Online, Online Film Critics Society, San Francisco Film Critics Circle, and Toronto Film Critics Association. Additionally, it emerged victorious as the Best Animated Film, as recognized by the Boston Online Film Critics Association (sharing the honor with the renowned film Frozen), Boston Society of Film Critics, Chicago Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Circle, and San Diego Film Critics Society. The film's captivating narrative also won the hearts of audiences, as evident by its Audience Favorite - Animation award at the Mill Valley Film Festival, and the coveted Best Family Film recognition from the Women Film Critics Circle. The following year, Kaze Tachinu continued to amass praise, scoring the Animation of the Year distinction at the Japan Academy Prize, Best Animated Film at the National Board of Review, and the esteemed Best Motion Picture, Animated or Mixed Media during the Satellite Awards.
