Did you hear Hayao Miyazaki is retiring? Bummer! Thing is, this isn't the first time we've heard that Miyazaki is retiring. In fact, he's officially quit Studio Ghibli before, only to return.
As a couple Japanese Twitter users have pointed out, Miyazaki has "retired" several times—five times by some people's count or once every three years by others. (Note: all of these were certainly not official and some of them were either hinted at or pure speculation.)
