Some of you may have seen a similar question like this before, but I am still posting this. Personally, my favourite Hayao Miyazaki movie is 'Spirited Away' because it was the first movie I watched that was made by Miyazaki. Whenever I see it I always get those good feelings (u know, duh feels) of when I first watched it. Also, the movie has an awesome story and I love the whole idea of a bath house where spirits go to. Plus, the movie includes the super natural or, in other words, creatures/things that are non-existent, which make you feel like you are in (watching) a different world.

Ofcourse, 'Spirited away' is not my only favourite Hayao Miyazaki movie. Other favourites include: Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky and Kiki's delivery service.


So, what is your favourite Hayao Miyazaki movie? and why?




P.S. Totally posting this out of boredom. Also, please ignore anything that doesn't make sense. lol.

spirited away, reason... everything is perfect in that anime, from characters to dialogues to symbolism. what's the word? I think it's called textual integrity, that movie is so together, the themes, the oddity, everything.

I love pretty much all the ones I've seen; Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke...

They're just very fantastic, the animation and art is beautiful, and they're all enjoyable no matter how many times you've seen them.

Now I need to watch all the ones I haven't seen. ;A; (My Neighbour Totoro, Nausicaa...)

Spirited Away. There's a backlash towards picking it since Spirted Away is what everyone immediately thinks about when you say Hayao Miyazaki, so picking it isn't very auteurian. But I still think it remains as his most ideal work.

I also particularly like Nausicaa and Mononoke, and I'm looking forward to seeing The Wind Rises.

Laptua: Castle in the Sky



This film has an amazing array of characters that felt well tied together during their uplifting, funny, and even serious moments. More than anything else though; I loved seeing Pazu's and Sheeta's relationship flourish from start to end. Whenever I need something to fall asleep to, or to change my mood from bad to good; this is the film I revisit.

You are correct--this question has been asked and there are two currently active similar threads, so please post in one of those existing threads as duplicate threads aren't allowed.

In the Movies forum:

/forumtopic-621991/favorite-studio-ghibli-movie

In the Anime forum:

/forumtopic-801419/studio-ghiblis-greatest-masterpiece

I realize that there is not 100% overlap between Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, but it's very close, and the opening post of that first thread linked does specify Ghibli or Miyazaki, so we definitely already have this covered.
