Wind Rises, The
The Wind Rises (風立ちぬ; Kaze Tachinu) is a 2013 Anime historical drama romance movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki, based on the life of Japanese aviation pioneer Jiro Horikoshi. The young Jiro Horikoshi longs to be a pilot. In a dream, he meets the Italian aircraft engineer Giovanni Battista Caproni and receives some wisdom: it is much nicer to construct aircraft than to fly them. For this reason, the now-grown Jiro begins to study engineering at the Tokyo Imperial University some years later. On a train ride, he meets the beautiful Naoko Satomi, 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.
Other voice roles in the English dub include William H. Macy, Mandy Patinkin, Jennifer Grey, Stanley Tucci, and Elijah Wood.
The following weapons were used in the film The Wind Rises:
During Jiro Horikoshi's first dream with Giovanni Battista Caproni, several Caproni Ca.3 bombers are seen with air-cooled Fiat-Revelli M1914 machine guns.
The Type 97 Aircraft Machine Gun is mounted on Horikoshi's planes like the Mitsubishi Experimental 7-Shi and the legendary Mitsubishi A6M "Zero".
During the description of the Mitsubishi G3M bomber, it can be seen with Type 92 light machine guns, the Japanese copy of the British Lewis Gun.
Soviet Polikarpov I-15 fighters in Chinese service are armed with four PV-1 machine guns.
What appears to be two Ho-103 machine guns are mounted on a Nakajima G8N bomber wreck's turret.
