“On Your Mark” (オン・ユア・マーク On Yua Māku) is a song by the Japanese rock duo Chage & Aska. At their request, animator Hayao Miyazaki produced a music video for the song. The music video was created in 1995, is entirely animated, has no dialogue and runs for six and a half minutes. The song was used in advertisements for NEC.
Upon raiding what appears to be a religious cult, the Saint Nova’s Church, two police officers (Chage & Aska) find a girl with a rather angelic appearance lying tied and unconscious in an alley. As she is then taken to what looks like a lab of sorts, the two make plans to rescue her and set her free.
I never saw this before!! Oh, Myazaki. How I love your worlds.
What I love about Studio Ghibli films is that, in most of them, the love shared between two characters isn’t showy, passionate, or exaggerated. Most of the love interests don’t even kiss, let alone voice their love for each other. It’s beautiful to me, how simple and innocent young love is portrayed in Ghibli films.
