Oh, no
I wonder if Howl's in town
It took off
No, just hiding
from all the soldiers
Say, did you hear?
Remember artha, from South Haen?

How scary. . .
Don't worry, he's not going
to want yours
Hurry up
Oh, cut it out. . .
Hey there little mouse,

Oh, no. . . I'm fine
Then how about a cup of tea?
Care to join me?
No thank you, I'm busy
She sure is a cute little mouse

Come back soon, Lettie
How did you land
on the eranda like that?
Hae you become an angel?
It feels like I'm in a dream. . .
Lettie, why not use the office?
Thanks, but I should really
be working
You sure he wasn't a wizard?
He was so kind. . .
He rescued me. . .
Don't tell me he's stolen your heart
If that was the wizard Howl,
he'd hae eaten it right up
Don't worry,
Howl's only after beauties
here you go again
Listen to me,

Oh, you. . .

Okay, be right there

I'm going home
It's a relief to know

Hello, Lettie
Nice to see you
Listen, are you going to spend
your whole life in that shop?
It meant so much to Papa
Besides, I'm the eldest
hat's not what I meant
re you sure you want to be a hatter?
Well, I . . .
Bye, Lettie
Come by the shop next time
I'll be on my way
Sophie, you'e got to
look out for yourself
Sorry, the shop's closed
I thought I'd locked the door
What a cheap shop,
full of cheap little hats
nd you're quite cheap-looking yourself
This is just a simple hat shop
I think you had better leae
You're ery brae, taking on
the Witch of the Waste
The Witch of the Waste?
You won't be able to tell anyone
about that spell
y regards to Howl
Is this really me!
I'e got to stay calm
I'e got to calm down
It's no use panicking, Sophie
I'll be fine, I'll be fine
I'e got to calm down
I'm back!
Welcome home, a'am!
- Welcome home
- How do you like it?
It's all the rage in Kingsbury
It suits you
Don't you think it's wonderful?
rs. Hatter, Sophie hasn't come down
to work yet
I wonder what's the matter?
Don't come in
I'e got an awful cold
I don't want you to catch it
You sound just awful. . .
Like some 90 year-old woman
I'll stay in bed today
You sure? ll right, then
Here we go. . .
You'll be fine, old lady
You're still healthy, and these clothes
finally suit you
But I can't stay here
Ouch, ouch
It's not easy being old
hey're saying this war
is going to be terrible. . .
Like a hand, granny?
Such a gentleman,
but I'll manage
Sure, old lady,
but where are you off to?
Just a bit farther than where
you're going
I don't recommend it, granny
Nothing but witches and wizards ahead
hank you
Going to the Folding Valley,
at this hour?
Says her youngest sister's there
I'e hardly made any progress at all
hank goodness I'e still got my teeth
That'll make a good cane
Up we go
ight be a bit too thick
Ouch, ouch
What a stubborn branch
Neer underestimate
Grandma Sophie
scarecrow, eh? I thought you were
working for the Witch
But how do you stand by yourself?
Your head's a turnip
I'e always hated turnips
t least you're not
upside down anymore
So long
It's so cold
The town's still so close
Don't follow me
You don't owe me a thing
You must be a magical whateer-you-are
I'e had enough of witches and spells!
Just go stand whereer you like!
This is a perfect cane
Thank you kindly
While you're at it, could you bring me
a house to sleep in?
Seems you get more cunning with age
What a huge battleship
I neer realized how weak you feel
when you get old
I smell smoke
aybe there's a cabin
Turnip-head, isn't that Howl's Castle?
his is hardly what I meant
when I asked for shelter!
What is this?
You call this a castle?
Is that the way in?
Just wait up there
Hey, there!
re you going to let me on, or not!
y shawl!
It seems warm enough inside, Turnip
I'm going in
hank you
en Howl wouldn't want
an ancient heart like mine
his time, it's really goodbye
You may be a turnip,
but you're a good turnip
ay you find happiness
What is this place?
Just looks like a dilapidated heap
Well, one nice thing about getting old
is that nothing surprises you anymore
That's some spell you're under
It won't be easy to break
he fire talked
nd you can't een
tell anyone about it
You're Howl?
Wrong. I'm the fire demon, Calcifer!
Well, then, Calcifer, can you break
the spell I'm under?
If you break the spell that chains me
to this place,
I'll break your spell in a flash
In other words, bargain with a demon
You sure you can keep that promise?
Demons don't make promises
I suggest you look elsewhere
But I'm an exploited demon
I'm chained here by a contract with Howl,
who works me to death
I'm the one who keeps
this castle moing
y, you'e got it rough
If you figure out the secret contract,
the spell will break
If you do that,
I'll break your spell, too
ll right
bargain, eh?
Boy. . .
I'e got my doubts about her
Hey, who's this?
When did she get in?
Stand by
Why, ayor, sir
The sun is already high
Is aster Jenkins at home?
he aster is out
I answer in his stead
n initation from His ajesty
It has come to war
His ajesty desires eery wizard
and magician, een the witches,
to aid our homeland
His presence is imperatie
That is all
War, how awful
nd who might you be?
Calcifer let me in
Don't look at me
She wandered in from the Wastes
he Wastes?
That's strange
You're not a witch, are you?
witch could neer get in
Porthaen, again
Stand by
State your purpose
ama sent me
he usual spell?
Behae yourself, now
It's not the Wastes
Granny, are you a witch, too?
hat's right,
I'm the scariest witch in the land
Sprinkle this powder on your ship
and the winds will faor it
any thanks
I can't hae you making up things
You should gie up that disguise
It's not a disguise, it's magic
he Kingsbury door
Stand by
Is this the residence of
Wizard Pendragon?
It is, indeed
I bear an initation
from His ajesty
Please inform aster Pendragon
that he is required at the Palace
Our thanks to you
city fit for a king
Get back in or you'll lose your nose
Stop wandering around
That's enough!
I'm going to get really mad
his is a magic house, isn't it?
Oh, boy!
Where does the black one lead?
Only aster Howl knows
I'm haing my breakfast
But you'e got bacon and eggs
We can't use the fire
when aster Howl's away
I'll cook for you
But you can't
Calcifer only obeys aster Howl
hat's right, I won't cook for you
Oh, here's my hat
ll right, Calcifer
Be a good fire, now
Forget it, I'm a demon
I answer to no one
You'll do as I say,
or I'll pour water on you
Or would you rather I told Howl
about our bargain?
Hey! Hey!
I neer should'e let this old lady in
So, what'll it be?
hat's right, there's a good fire
Hey! Hey!
I'll burn the bacon
Calcifer's doing what she says
I'd like some tea, too
Hae you got a kettle?
Welcome home, aster Howl
You hae letters from the king
o Jenkins and to Pendragon
Calcifer, you're so obedient
She bullied me
Not an easy thing to do
Who exactly are you?
I'm Grandma Sophie
You see, I'm your
new cleaning lady
Gie me that
Pass me two more bacon slices
and six more eggs
nd who hired you to clean?
Why, I hired myself
I'e neer seen such a filthy house
arkl, plates
You're all ganging up on me
Please join us, Sophie
Sit oer here
Pick one
erything else is dirty
I'e got my work cut out for me
hank you
Brethren, let us partake
of our daily bread
Our daily bread
Haen't had a real breakfast
in a long while
So many manners to teach. . .
So, what's that in your pocket?
I wonder what it is
Let me
It's scorched into the table
aster Howl, this is. . .
ncient sorcery
nd powerful, too
The Witch of the Waste?
" He who catches a falling star,
oh heartless man
"Your heart shall be mine. . . "
Well, so much for the table
Wow, it's gone!
he scorch mark has anished,
but not the spell
Brethren, continue your meal
Calcifer, moe the castle
1 00 kilometers
nd send hot water to the bath
Not that, too!
Do you work for the
Witch of the Waste?
Don't be stupid! The witch. . .
ctually. . .
the witch. . . I . . .
Confound it!
Damn that Witch of the Waste
Wait 'til I get my hands on her!
Let me finish eating this
Bugs, you'd better scurry away
or I'll sweep you out
Eery last one of you, mocking me
here's a spell I need
witch rages within
Sophie, I'm going out
I'll die without some fresh wood
What, what are you doing?
I'll fall, I'll fall
I'm in peril
I'm sweeping the ashes
Won't be a minute
Oh, no
Oh, no
I'm in danger
I'm in danger. . .
I'll go out
Oh, no
I'm slipping. . .
Hurry, Sophie
ry not to torment my friend
aster Howl, are you going out?
arkl, tell our cleaning lady
not to get too carried away
What'd you do, Sophie?
She abused me
If I die, Howl goes with me
I'm the cleaning lady
It's my job to clean
No, not the 2nd floor!
If I were you, I'd put your
precious things away in a hurry
Sae my room for later
y little outburst gae me back
my strength
What a strange house
Calcifer, Calcifer!
re you moing the castle?
What a lot of fuss! Of course I am
You're incredible, Calcifer
Your magic's first class
I misjudged you completely
You think so?
You really think so!
Oh, no, not yet!
How beautiful
It's called Star Lake
Something's stuck in there
Oh, dear
Lend me a hand, arkl
nd up!
He's called urnip, the urnip-head
You sure like being upside down
he odd creature seems to hae
taken a liking to me
He followed me here
re you sure you're not a witch, Sophie?
That's right, I'm the cleanest witch
in the land
Turnip, don't pull it so tight
Seems like he likes doing the wash
They'll dry in no time
Turnip must belong to the demons
Calcifer doesn't seem to mind him
You're right,
maybe he's a demon of the dead
But he led me
to this wonderful place
I'e put away all the laundry, Sophie
Why, thank you
We'd better be getting back
How mysterious
I'e neer felt such peace
You reek of burnt flesh and steel
Keep flying and one day you
won't be able to change yourself back
Isn't it great! Sophie did this for me
The fighting is fierce
he country's ablaze, from the
southern coast to the northern border
I hate the fire in gunpowder
hey hae no manners
y own kind attacked me
The Witch of the Waste?
Hack wizards masquerading
as monsters
hey'll cry plenty later on,
when they can't regain human form
No, they'll just forget
they eer knew how to cry
ren't you supposed to report
to the king yourself?
Yes, well. . .
Hot water for my bath
Oh, no, not again
Is that Howl?
Yeah, wasting my hot water again
I'm sure Howl won't eat any breakfast
No matter
It's loely shopping in the morning
I'e neer seen the ocean
Such beautiful, sparkling water
Same as it always is
I myself hate potatoes
Pay up
hank you
Fish, all fresh off the boat
hat one's tasty
I myself hate fish
he fleet's come home
Is that the smoke?
here's been another battle
Really? Sorry, lady, later
hat ship's on fire!
Sophie, let's go get a closer look
No, I'e no stomach for such things
Let's go home
Our most adanced battleship,
reduced to this
arkl, there are Blob en nearby
Don't moe
hey work for the Witch of the Waste
hey're gone
Don't people notice
those terrible monsters?
Look! Up there!
That's what dropped those bombs!
n enemy airship, Sophie
Sophie, flyers
Ignore the flyers
hey're enemy propaganda!
re you OK, Sophie?
glass of water, please
Sophie, what did you do
to the bathroom sheles? Look!
y hair's turned this weird color!
What. . . what beautiful hair
Take a good look!
You mixed up eerything on
the sheles and ruined the spells
I didn't mix up anything,
I simply cleaned up
Cleaning, always cleaning
I told you not to get
too carried away
It's hopeless
How humiliating
It's not so ery bad
This new shade's quite loely
in its way
I'm done for. What's the point
in liing, if you aren't beautiful. . .
Stop, Howl! Cut it out!
He's calling on
the spirits of Darkness
He did this last time
a girl ditched him
Please, Howl, that's enough
You can just dye your hair again
I'e had enough of you, Howl!
I'e neer once been beautiful!
I'e had enough of this place!
hank you, urnip
You're a kind scarecrow
Please come back, Sophie
Howl's in trouble!
Cut it out, Howl
I'm going out
Get oer here
y, he's dramatic
Is he dead?
Don't worry
tantrum neer killed anyone
Help me, arkl
Get that hot water running, arkl
C'mon, you can still walk
You look after him now, arkl
I'll hae to clean all oer again
I'm coming in
Here's some hot milk
Drink up
I'll leae it here
Drink it while it's hot
Don't leae me, Sophie
Try a little milk?
he Witch of the Waste
is searching for my house
You're right, I saw her cronies
down at the port
he truth is, I'm a coward
ll this junk is just sorcery
to keep her away
I'm scared to death
ell me, why is
the Witch of the Waste after you?
She seemed quite interesting,
so I approached her
But she terrified me
and I ran away
Now the king's ordered
me to report to him
s Jenkins and as Pendragon. . .
How many names do you use, Howl?
nough to guarantee my freedom
Can't you refuse the king?
See that. . .
he oath I took at
the Sorcery cademy
Say, Howl
Why not isit the king?
Just say it to his face
"Stop this foolish war
I refuse to help you "
Sophie, you don't know
what they're like
But he's the king, right? king thinks
only of what's best for his people
I know!
You'll go in my place, Sophie!
Pretend you're Pendragon's mother
Just tell him your son is
an idle good-for-nothing
aybe adam Suliman
will een gie up on me
adam Suliman?
You're wearing that hat?
fter all the magic I spent
making your dress pretty. . .
Off I go
See you later!
his charm
assures your safe return
Don't worry, I'll follow you in disguise
Off you go!
I'm sure this will neer work
I don't suppose he's following me,
disguised as a crow
I'm sure Howl would pick
a more dramatic disguise
Not that. . .
The Palace is so far away
Don't tell me you're Howl
Disguising yourself as an old dog,
of all things
Do you know how exhausting
it is to be old?
How nice to see you
he little hatter, right?
The Witch of the Waste!
Thank you so much for
deliering my note to Howl
How's Howl doing?
Quite terrified
hanks to you,
I'e become a cleaning lady
y how delightful
By the way, what brings you
to see the king?
Job hunting
I'm sick of working for Howl
nd yourself?
he king inited me
It seems that idiot, Suliman,
finally needs my power
Why don't you break the spell
you put on me
That's impossible
y gifts lie in casting spells,
not breaking them
See you later, then
Hey, wait a minute
Just wait!
If you weren't here,
I'd hae hit her with my cane
What's wrong with you?
adam, ehicles are prohibited
beyond this point
Please continue on foot
That Suliman
Using magic to force me
to climb these stairs
We'll catch up
Pay her no mind
Heay, why are you so heay?
You. . . Hey. . . Wait
What is it?
Suddenly remembered. . .
how to break my spell?
I told you. . .
I don't know how
Then, start studying up
I don't get it
Where does she get all that energy?
I hae to put you down
Why don't you call it a day?
You can't make it
It's been 50 years now,
since they droe me out of here. . .
I'e been longing for this day. . .
er since
Good luck to you, then
Still, I'm not nice enough
to help you out
Come, Howl
You heartless wench
Next time I'll turn you feeble, too
Hurry up!
adam, follow me
First, you should help her
We are forbidden to assist anyone
But the king himself inited her
Hang in there!
Just a little farther
nd you call yourself a witch?
Who asked you?
You suddenly look older
adam Pendragon and
the Witch of the Waste!
Pull yourself together
Isn't this what you'e been waiting for?
adam Pendragon and
the Witch of the Waste!
Pendragon. . .
hat name sounds familiar
Of course it does
That was the name of my hat shop
It was?
Please wait here
It's mine!
SharePirate.Com Subs
Howl, get back here
adam, this way please
I understand you're Howl's mother
y name is Pendragon
I'm sure you're weary
Please hae a seat
I am adam Suliman, His ajesty's witch
Um, that dog is. . .
h, you mean Heen?
He does my errands
I asked him to escort you
Howl won't join us, then?
You see, he sends his mother
to make excuses
I'm sure he'd be utterly useless
to His ajesty
What a shame
He was my last apprentice. . .
student of such marvelous gifts
I rejoiced in finally finding
a worthy heir
But then, a demon stole his heart,
and he abandoned me
He turned his magic
to purely selfish uses
rs. Pendragon
That boy is dangerous
His power is too great
for one with no heart
If he follows that path he'll wind up
like the Witch of the Waste
Bring her
What happened?
I just restored her to her real age
ll her powers are gone
Once upon a time,
she was a magnificent witch
She made a bargain with a demon
who consumed her, body and soul,
long, long ago
Our kingdom can no longer afford
to turn a blind eye
to disreputable wizards and witches
If Howl comes here
to serve the kingdom,
I will teach him how to break
with the demon
If not, I'll strip him of his powers
as I hae taken hers
Now just a minute
Now I understand why Howl
refused to come here
Something's not right
Forcing your aged guests to climb
stairs, dragging them into strange rooms
It's like a trap
You call Howl heartless!
Yes, he's selfish and cowardly
and unpredictable
But he's straight as an arrow
He only wants to be free
Howl won't turn into an eil monster
He'll battle the demon on his own
I beliee in him
rs. Pendragon. . .
You're in loe with Howl
Howl. . .
Howl's coming?
I want Howl's heart, I want it
That's enough from you
Howl's not coming
Howl will most certainly come
Now, I'e found his weakness
Your ajesty
s you are
How are you feeling?
hank you for asking
eetings bore me
I flew out for a breather
How loely
These are?
his is Wizard Howl's mother
I see
I appreciate it, but I don't intend
to win any war with magic
It's true that Suliman's powers
shield our palace from bombs
But they just fall on neighboring towns
hat's how magic works
Right, Suliman?
Such eloquence today, Your ajesty
This is the final battle
This time, we'll beat them to a pulp
Suliman, you'e outdone yourself
with that double. wait good news
Thank you kindly
Hae my generals assembled?
It's been awhile, Howl
Delighted to see you doing so well
I saw right through you
I'e kept my oath
I'e no wish to fight you
I'll take my mother
I won't let you go
Don't look down,
you'll be dragged down
It's time I showed your mother
what you really are
Howl, don't! It's a trap
Hold tight
Sophie, sit up front
Oh, no, Sophie,
you brought the whole gang along
Nice doggie
You're just Suliman's spy
Oh, well, too late to toss you now
Sophie, you steer
What! I can't possibly!
hey're after us
I'll tackle them. Fly straight
to the castle in the Wastes
What! hat's impossible!
Don't worry, the ring will guide you
Summon Calcifer with your heart
Summon Calcifer?
It's glowing
Follow the light
You'll be there by nightfall
Why send me to Suliman
if you were coming yourself?
Your presence gae me
the courage for it
She's too terrible to
face on my own
You'e saed me
I was in grae danger back there
Don't let go!
- You're good
- Stop joking!
We'e got a lead now
I can gie you 5 minutes of inisibility,
now's your chance
No, thank you
hank you. hat's the most fun
I'e had in ages
I supposed Howl thinks
he's escaped. . .
His mother's awfully young
We're not far
hat's my hometown
Don't look so friendly
I don't trust you
The castle
They'e come to meet us
arkl, help!
I don't know how to stop this thing!
I'm home
Sophie, are you hurt?
You're home!
Thank you for coming to meet us
Oh, no, you'e gone too far
I wonder if Howl's back
Howl? Is it you?
re you hurt? In pain?
Stay away
I want to help you
I want to break the spell you're under
You can't een break your own spell
But I loe you!
oo late
Howl must be back
Sophie, you'd better figure out
how to break my spell quick
We're both running out of time
eaning Howl will turn into
a monster? Is it true?
I can't tell you that
I'm a demon
Calcifer, Suliman told me,
Howl has gien you
something ery precious
What is it?
Where is it?
That's confidential information
nd if I threaten
to dump water oer you?
How dare you!
Howl will die with me
Good morning, Turnip
We'e got to be brae
Ready, Sophie!
OK! Open wider, Calcifer
Here goes! Push!
I . . . said. . . moe!
Come on!
They call it a castle, but once
you get inside, it's a junk heap
It's time to eat!
Here, old girl
But, Sophie
she's the Witch of the Waste
No need to worry
Why's she staring at me?
Such a pretty fire
Hello, eeryone
Welcome home
aster Howl,
can we keep this puppy?
n old Witch and
adam Suliman's dog
Why'd you let them in, Calcifer?
Don't look at me!
hey blew in with Sophie
Sophie, always dramatic. . .
So you're urnip
You're under quite a spell, too
Seems eeryone in our little family
is complicated. . .
He's so handsome
This is a busy day
We're moing
Oh, good. here aren't any shops,
here in the middle of nowhere
adam Suliman can track us down
in no time, here
But you'll hae to stay behind
The magic in your spell's too risky
ll right, that's done
Take it away, Calcifer
Stay right where you are
Be gentle. . .
Here goes
We'e moed
You can get up now
mazing, aster
It's so grand
What a pretty fire
This is. . .
I added a bathroom
For our growing family
Sophie, come here!
I added a bedroom, too
Go in
his is. . . why?
I thought it would suit you
Do you like it?
Yes, it's perfect
for a housekeeper
I got you new clothes, too
Open them later. Next
Sophie! Come here!
There's a shop, too
Let's go, Heen!
See that new color on the dial?
There's a new exit
y gift to you, Sophie
Step outside
It's my secret garden
Did you make it with your magic?
Only a little, to help the flowers
hank you, Howl!
It's like I'm dreaming
How mysterious
I feel I'e been here before
I could cry with happiness
sweet little house
y faorite hideaway
When I was little I spent
my summers there alone
y Uncle, the Wizard,
left it to me in secret
ake yourself at home there, Sophie
What's wrong?
I'm scared
I'm afraid you'll go off and disappear
somewhere, once I'm inside
Howl, tell me the truth
I don't mind if you're a monster
I want to make sure that
you'll all lie comfortably
Why not a flower shop,
with all these flowers?
You'd be good at it, Sophie
nd then, you'd go away?
I want to help you, Howl
I'm not beautiful
and I'm only good at cleaning. . .
Sophie, you are beautiful
he good thing about being old
is that you'e so little to lose. . .
Why's that flying here?
On its way to burn cities and people
he enemy's? Ours?
What difference does it make?
Look at all those bombs
It stopped
Did you do that?
I'm just tinkering
It won't crash
Oops, looks like they're onto us
adam Suliman's deputies
Let's go back
Run! oe those legs
Hurry on in!
No! Don't let go!
What happened, Sophie?
I'e had it with this place!
Good night, Sophie
Good night
Don't worry about aster Howl, Sophie
Sometimes, he's gone for days on end
Thank you, arkl
Need the toilet?
I'm fine
Good night
You're in loe
Sighing away like that
I thought so
Were you eer in loe?
Of course I was
I'm still in loe
en, why eer should we want them. . .
But a young man's heart is so delicious!
nd so adorable, too
What is that?
ir raid siren
ir raid?
It's not for here
But best not go out tonight
Suliman's creatures are searching
high and low for our house
What a good fire,
hiding us so well
Sophie, a stranger got in!
Where hae you been!
I searched for you eerywhere!
But, oh, look how you'e aged!
It's all my fault
I'm so sorry, Sophie!
other. . .
I barely recognize the house
Who is that?
Oh, your landlady
Sophie, I'e got a new husband!
He's such a wonderful man
nd he's rich, too!
We can all lie together again
You'll neer hae to clean again
But I'm happy here. . .
Oops, I forgot
y car's waiting
I'e got to run
I'm so glad I found you again
We'll really catch up next time
In the meantime, you take care
peeping-bug, eh?
The oldest trick in the book, Suliman
ll yours, Cal
ay you find happiness, other
hank you
You too, Sophie
I'e done what I was told
Take me back to my husband
Yes, I'm sure adam Suliman
will be pleased
Forgie me, Sophie. . .
Look at all these people
They're all running away
The town will be empty
Do you wish to run, too?
hat's what that lady spoke of. . .
So, she did
I'm glad we made up
Don't go, Sophie!
I loe you, Sophie
Please stay
I loe you, too, arkl
Don't worry, I won't go
re we a family?
Yes, we're family
Oh, good!
I'll neer let Suliman
get hold of Howl
But the paper says we won
Only fools swallow such lies
How strange
I can't get Calcifer going
Grandma, will you stop that?
Such an awful stink
Why deny an old lady her pleasures
Open the window, arkl
I wouldn't open that now. . .
In Calcifer's present state,
he can't possibly keep them out
Close it quick!
Look after Grandma, arkl
I'll check on the shop
How dare you, now? If you'e
energy to spare, put out the fires
Dramatic as usual. . .
I'm sorry
I had too many enemies, tonight
Howl, oh, Howl
aster Howl!
Calcifer, be strong
adam, was that a gift
from Suliman?
hat granny fed me something nasty
Why, if it isn't Howl
I feel we need a nice long chat
Likewise, adam
But we'e no time, now
How unlike you
You're not running away
Until later, then
Stay here, Sophie
Calcifer will protect you
I'll see to things outside
Wait, Howl!
Don't go! Please stay
nother round of bombs is coming
en Calcifer can't stop those
Let's run away
Don't fight
I'm through running away
I'e finally found someone
I want to protect. . .
That's our town
There's Howl
Turnip. . .
arkl, come inside!
oe? You're nuts
here's nothing there
No, as long as we stay here,
Howl will keep fighting
He's better off a coward
Grandma, get up
Going for a stroll?
Suliman will find us, right away
She already has. t this rate,
Howl will neer make it back alie
he castle's falling apart
That's all right
arkl, take Grandma
You, too, hop up now
I can't! y contract says
I can't leae the fireplace
If you two can't sole this,
I'll do it for you
Watch it!
Cut it out! Cut it out!
If I leae, the house will collapse
We're out
I'd better go last
Een I don't know what'll happen. . .
I told you, it would collapse
Is that heading for town?
Look after Grandma, arkl
urnip, find us a way in
Don't worry, Grandma
I'll take care of you
arkl, we can get in here

I'll go out
Wait here
It's wet here. . .
oo damp
Bring Grandma here, arkl

I told you, if we'd stayed put,
Howl and I could'e handled it
Calcifer, please
You're my last hope
I want to go to Howl
oe the castle
I know you can do it
You're so strong
But there's no chimney here. . .
nd the wood's damp. . .
s the saying goes, "The best
blaze brightest in adersity"
I'e heard that, but. . .
You really think so?
You're so pretty, Cal
Sit here, Grandma
hen, gie me something of yours,
Of mine?
I can't do it alone
How about your eyes?

You are the best!
Imagine what I could do with
your eyes and your heart
Heart! You hae a heart?
Oh, my!
There's Howl
He's trapped
Hurry, Calcifer!
Stop it!
Howl's heart
Cut it out!
It's hot, hot!
Let go!
You'll die, Grandma
No, it's mine!
She's so mean
hat's mine
Oh, no, Heen, look what I'e done
I poured water on Calcifer
What if I'e killed Howl, too. . .
It's moing. . .
Is Howl alie?
Show me where he is

Heen. . .

Wait for me in the future!

You'e been waiting all this time

Is he dead?
No, he's fine
Grandma. . .
Don't look at me

You want it that badly?
Oh, well, in that case. . .
You'd better take good care of it
Thank you, Grandma
Sophie. . .
I'm all worn out
If I gie Howl's heart back,
will it kill you?
Probably not, if you do it, Sophie
fter all, we both survied
the water you dumped on me
I'd better try, then
It's all warm and fluttery
like a little bird
It's still only a child's heart
ay Calcifer lie a thousand years,
and may Howl recoer his heart. . .
I'm alie!
I'm free!
He moed, he's alie!
You broke Calcifer's spell!
Turnip, are you OK?
I'll get you a new stick, right away
hank you, urnip

I'm a prince from the next kingdom
cruel spell turned me
into a scarecrow
spell that only your beloed's
kiss could break
"beyond these tears"
spell that only your beloed's
kiss could break
"beyond these tears"
"beyond these tears"
xactly. nd if Sophie hadn't saed me,

I would hae died
"my flickering smile"

Like I'm trapped under a stone
"holds the promise of love"

Oh, yes, a heart's a heay burden
Oh, Sophie, your hair is

How wonderful
"even though I'm alone now"
"even though I'm alone now"
So, now you see how Sophie feels

Besides, it looks like rain. . .
Thank you, Calcifer

"like sunlight through the leaves"

"even though I'm alone now"
"my tomorrows are boundless"
"like the kindness you showed me"
"hidden in the night"
"somehow I lost you"
"among all my memories"
"in a brook's gentle laughter"
"in the scent of a flower"
"in the depth of the sky"
