The Wind Rises (風立ちぬ; Kaze Tachinu) is a 2013 Anime movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The young Jiro Horikoshi decides that he wants to build airplanes. In a dream, he met the Italian aircraft engineer Caproni and has brought him one of his wisdom: It is much nicer to construct aircraft than to fly them. For this reason, the now-grown Jiro begins some years later to study engineering at the University of Tokyo. On a train ride, he meets the handsome Naoko, his great love. But it takes many years and a chance reunion until the two get engaged. But sharing time is not easy for the couple: while Jiko builds warplanes over the years as the lead developer for several companies, Naoko is struggling with health issues.

In other voice roles: William H. Macy, Mandy Patinkin, Jennifer Grey, Stanley Tucci and Elijah Wood.

The following weapons were used in the film The Wind Rises:

Aircraft carrier Hōshō

Note the two 14 cm/50 3rd Year Type naval guns at the Bow, Nakajima A1N1 fighters on deck and the sided chimneys. On the right there is a destroyer, which could be a Momo or Wakatake class.

Battleship Nagato

Note the curved chimney which is a pre-1936 feature (correct for the Nakajima A1N1 fighter testings, that were around 1930).
