I'm not the only one (even in this thread) that sees Miyazaki as Studio Ghibli incarnate having Nausicca on the list. Unless you enjoy bitching at people for parsing where the hell he produced the movie. Do you work for Top or just like wanting to sound right all the time? Geez..

Princess Mononoke is the only one I've seen in entirety, although I've seen bits and pieces of Howl's Moving Castle.

so I let her watch The Secret World of Arrietty, because I think that it was more appropriate to let a 8 year old girl see that one instead of Princess Mononoke.




What? This seems perfectly suitable for an 8 year old.

Kiki's Delivery Service ^_^

Fun Fact: was my first introduction to anime apart from seeing pokemon/DBZ before school when i was young


Kiki's was the first anime movie I saw as well, along with Ghost in the Shell which 10 year old me didn't understand at all and Digimon/Pokemon/Yu Yu Hakusho.

Grave of the Fireflies is nice. But only a one time watch for me. My heart can't take watching it more than once. Haven't watched "Only Yesterday". Ponyo was good visual wise, and had potential to be amazing. But the story went no where. Absolutely no where.



I am the same in regards to Grave of the Fireflies.
Incredibly powerful piece of cinema, but I could not see myself watching it again.

Am I the only one whose favourite is The Cat Returns?

The Cat Returns
Howl's Moving Castle
My Neighbor Totoro
Kiki's Delivery Service
Porco Roso
Spirited Away
Princess Mononoke are my favourite. Anyone else not feeling the "newer" movies that have been made? :/


The Cat....Returns? Cat in the hat? lol I never heard of that movie from them. And YESSSSS! I hate the newer movies they've been putting out. Not 'hate' but they have been really average. I haven't seen the Secret World of Spaghettii or whatever it's called...Arrietti? I dunno lol I just found out about it like a few months ago when I saw a commercial. Not really pushing people out of the line to see it.

I thought Grave of the Firefly was made very well, but it was the most sad and depressing little movie ever. I cried my eyes out. If you want too watch something extremly sad watch Grave of the Fireflys.

Spirited Away was the begining of my watching of films by Hayao Miyazaki that were produced my Studio Ghibli. All the films that I have seen so far are all my favorites. They are so imaginative and very well written and animated. You easly can feel the story and get sucked in. I love them.

Disney is also part of studio Ghibli now I heard??? Ghibli blows some of my childhood films out the water.

Well, I don't think it's so straightforward that you can equate Miyazaki with Studio Ghibli, since Miyazaki had a pretty long career before Studio Ghibli was formed, having worked in animation for about 20 years at various studios like Toei, Mushi Production (Osamu Tezuka's animation studio), A Pro, Nippon Animation, and TMS Entertainment, before starting work on the Nausicaa film. Most people, for example, wouldn't consider "Future Boy Conan" or "Castle of Cagliostro" as Ghibli works, even though Miyazaki directed both.

That said, Nausicaa is usually included among Studio Ghibli's earliest works, because even though it was technically produced by Topcraft, it was the movie that basically founded Studio Ghibli. Miyazaki had been approached by Tokuma Shoten to make the adaptation of his manga, and after the film was successful, basically the staff that worked on Nausicaa at Topcraft (which was either bought out by Tokuma Shoten/Hayao Miyazaki/Isao Takahata and renamed to Studio Ghibli, or simply went out of business around the same time) became a part of Studio Ghibli, so basically it was the same animators and artists from Topcraft that went on to work on Laputa. Nowadays Studio Ghibli includes Nausicaa in its DVD collections and part of its library of works, so it's generally okay to call it a Studio Ghibli film (you'll see the Ghibli logo on both the U.S. and Japanese DVD covers).

I can't not say Spirited Away, although I watch Princess Mononoke more often.

I haven't seen any of their newer material though, like Ponyo or The Secret World of Arrietty.

Although I did see Tales of Earthsea.
