It's a sad Labor Day Weekend as we hear sad news that Hayao Miyazaki is retiring from making full feature films. At the age of 74, the man leaves behind a dozen of classic films such as Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and Kiki's Delivery Service. With critical praise coming in for his latest outing, The Wind Rises, it looks like Miyazaki is going out on a high note. With his son getting into film making recently, it seems like Miyazaki was grooming his son to take over after he retires. It seems odd that Miyazaki's son suddenly starts making films just a few years before his father retires. With that in mind it kind of makes Miyazaki's retirement seem unlikely despite the internet's idea that he will return after a 3 to 5 year hiatus. Even if Miyazaki does not come back, I would say that he has earned a retirement for bringing millions around the world some really great memories from his films.

Want to get your content featured in the future? Well, first off, make sure it's top-notch. If you're making a user review or editing the wiki, be sure to use the image tools to throw in some pictures or videos or bullet points and spice it up a bit! Ensure that it's all well-written (maybe have another user edit it for you?) and free of misspellings.
If you want to submit something for next week's list, you can do so via this thread in our Editing and Tools forum! We are virile and our stamina is unmatched, and yet the site is a bit too big for us to find all the cool content that you guys rock out every week. But if you post in that thread, it'll be a lot easier for us to make sure that we have your nominations all in a line. As always, a big shoutout to everyone else who nominates stuff for these posts.
It's especially welcome if you want to nominate awesome content from another user, so please do nominate away! (And if you ever send something to us and it's not featured in the community showcase, PM a mod or FinalDasa and we'll try to sneak it in.).
