What happens to Muska?

I’ve watch Miyazaki’s film Laputa: Castle in the Sky numerous times but never realized this:

The original name “Laputa” is similar to a Spanish profane word and dropped from the title outside Japan. “Pajero”, the name of a SUV once popular in Japan also had an unintended and embarrassing meaning.

For fanatics of Miyazaki’s Nausicaa, you may want to cook one of these Ohmu-rice, a take on omurice or rice omelete. You can see how to create an omurice in this scene from Tampopo.

For Kill Bill fans, now available at NetFlix, you can catch Sonny Chiba in his original role as Hattori Hanzo in the TV series Shadow Warrior (kage no gundan).
