30 day Studio Ghibli Challenge, day 11: Favorite animal
He’s so loyal and sweet. I feel like he’s a person on his own and I love him. He never, ever left Ashitaka’s side. Ashitaka had to leave him behind, but Yakul wanted very badly to follow his best friend. I see them that way, Ashitaka and Yakul are friends, not animal and owner but friends. It’s a very sweet and noble relationship and for that I love Yakul.
