Hard to argue with Princess Mononoke. Gets better every time.

This viewing, I pondered how perfect of a guy Ashitaka is. He’s not really flawed in the traditional character arc manner. He doesn’t vacillate or show signs of capitulating. He functions more as a fulcrum around which thematic struggles manifested as characters around him swing. We identify with him passionately, pleading for all of these multifaceted, flawed characters surrounding him to get along. I can’t readily think of another tale which takes this approach.
