The plot of the Princess Mononoke movie is similar to that of the famous Hana and Hoshino, just that the series is changed with the length. Though some of the plot lines and characters were borrowed from the original series, such as the lake girl Nausicaa and the monkey Anego, the anime was made based on the original series plot and characters as well. The story had to be changed according to the changing pace of its plot and characters.
In the beginning of the film, the series has ended. It was supposed to be revealed at the end of the film that the ending of the series was never really dealt with.
This being the case, the viewers want to know what happens next in the Princess Mononoke series. Their curiosity increases when they find out that they do not have any more episodes of the anime. The news of the anime's cancellation during the run of the movie drew many people to the theater.
They are very much curious of the happenings in the second part of the series, which they believe that it would be the last part of the story arc. In the second part, we see the resuming of the battles between the land of Shikoku and the invading forces from the east. The land of Shikoku will be invaded by the demons of the East, with great numbers being seen coming from their army.
The warriors of the characters in the series will meet the enemies from the past like Marduk, an evil king who is the enemy of the Seven Kings of the Heavens. As the powers are combined again, these elements of the series will be shown in their full strength.
But, the true power of the series lie in the bond between the human girls and the creatures of the series. Their bond as a couple is the reason why this is considered to be the best series of all time in Japan.
The greatest thing about the anime is that it is not just a story of a romantic relationship. This is how a mother and daughter can bond as a team with each other through the series. Their relationship between the characters is of great importance in the anime.
The Princess Mononoke series was aired by Japan's entertainment channel, Animax. However, the online streaming site, Crunchyroll streamed the series with its original Japanese audio and subtitles, which is known to be a huge hit in the Japanese language. The series has been listed as one of the top 10 anime series all over the world.
