    Among all the characters, Calcifer was my favourite one!

    Howl's Moving Castle is quirky and enchanting. Diana Wynne Jones' writing has an innocent wonder, humor, and subtle wisdom that is pure magic. I have read a shelf-full of her books and loved every one. This book not only didn't disappoint but was a delightful surprise. None of the characters is quite what they seem, even to themselves, and everything is in a lovely, chaotic mess.

I did not read this book for a long time because I saw and loved Hayao Miyazaki's animated masterpiece based on the book. I knew that the book and film were very different and I feared that the book could never live up to the movie. Boy, was I wrong! Both the book and movie are their own unique works and both are perfect. I must now run out and buy the other books about Howl and Sofie!

    The movie was awesome, this comic not so much. BUT because of my love for Studio Ghibli and its works I cannot rate this lower than three stars.

    I had never heard about this story, book or movie until last week when I saw the movie and quickly became highly obsessed with it. Thus getting the comic version of said movie as well as a picture book as well as the book of the original story that inspired it. I LOVE IT

    To put it kindly, this is an interesting book. For the /r/fantasy bingo, I’m attempting to complete three boards: a generic, anything goes board, a board comprised of entirely female authors, and a comic book one. The comic book one is a bit tricky – some of the squares, like “desert setting” and “steampunk” are straightforward. Others, like “Any /r/Fantasy Goodreads Group Book Of The Month” or “Novel By an /r/Fantasy AMA Author OR Writer of the Day” are problematic and are requiring research and To put it kindly, this is an interesting book. For the /r/fantasy bingo, I’m attempting to complete three boards: a generic, anything goes board, a board comprised of entirely female authors, and a comic book one. The comic book one is a bit tricky – some of the squares, like “desert setting” and “steampunk” are straightforward. Others, like “Any /r/Fantasy Goodreads Group Book Of The Month” or “Novel By an /r/Fantasy AMA Author OR Writer of the Day” are problematic and are requiring research and help from the community (thank you for all of the recommendations, /r/fantasy!). Lucky for me, some very popular prose stories – such as Howl’s Moving Castle – have been made into graphic novels. So while the /r/Fantasy Goodreads group read Diana Wynne Jones’s prose version of the book, I got to experience volume 1 of the manga. And an experience it was. Because this book is entirely composed of…screen-grabs from the movie. Of course any screen-grab from a Miyazaki film is going to be a work of art, so that fact alone doesn’t make it a 1-star. But the conversion from animated film to manga was done disappointingly poorly; the whole product comes across like very little thought or heart went into the task of creation. Entire pages are devoted to minute movements. I understand that the creators of this book wanted to faithfully recreate the film but…ugh. I don’t need an entire page – eight panels – to see Sophie open a door. It’s like a really tough spot the difference puzzle! Even in scenes where things are happening – action, dialogue, story elements – the frames are set up like a film reel, side by side, all cut in neat little movie-screen-sized rectangles. This book comes across as a cheap cash grab, with no other purpose than to profit off of the beauty and artwork in the movie. I’m so glad this book exists, since it allows me to complete my bingo square – but the fact is, it really shouldn’t. If you want to read Howl’s Moving Castle, read Jones’s original masterpiece. If you want to see Miyazaki’s exquisite artwork, watch the movie. This comic is just a halfway between that doesn’t improve on either.

    I had so much fun reading this. I REALLY needed something short and easy to read, as I am about to focus on a long novel. I have read the original novel, and seen the movie so many times. Loved them. I got this picture book when I visited Universal and Epcot, in Orlando. When went to the Japan section, and I saw this book. My sister got it for me. That was five years ago. I haven't read it at all, 'til now. I don't know why. I absolutely adored this! I loved the characters, and nice large print. I had so much fun reading this.

    The picture book version of the movie was a little hard to follow not having seen the movie first. I may change my rating once I've seen the movie. The ending seemed quite abrupt and it was a little hard to follow. It was a fun magical journey though.

    I bought this as an Art reference for my future paintings. I don't regret one bit. I love Ghibli & Howl's Moving Castle so much. However, in my honest opinion, the movies are WAY better. These film comic series are lacking that spark and joy that the movies bring. I bought this as an Art reference for my future paintings. I don't regret one bit.

    When you like Ghibli, you like Ghibli. No matter in what kind of form it is brought to you.

    I love movies created by Miyazaki. It is so popular in China. There is always some hidden message in his work. His imagination is so wide that expand to another world.

    Maybe the movie is good but this book doesn't really make sense.

    After reading part three earlier today, I decided to read volume one. It was interesting to see how Sophie first meets Howl. Some parts of volume three made sense to me this time around due to them being explained in this volume. On to volume two now.
