Right, I know for a fact that some dreamers here love Studio Ghibli and their films/music what have you, but, I was sure it would have been more well known, because the films are so wonderful.

I would just like your opinions on anything/everthing about them, whether it is the plot, music, characters or just want to express your feelings!!

No I am not an addict *twitches*

Kiki's Delivery Service is AMAZING. o______________O

I don't care what you say about Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke... KIKI'S IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!

I love your avatar! Spirited Away was my first encounter with the Studio (and with anime in the first place :D ), Kiki's Delivery Service's was the second. Since then, I've seen Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, and even went to Howl's Moving Castle on opening day in theaters. I've only seen half of Nausicaa, though... sadblauw

Spirited Away is my favorite, though. I don't think I'll be able to change The Toy Master's mind, though.

(We already have an really old Miyazaki topic, just so you know it)

I love Studio Gibli. grin
My favorite movie has to be Grave of the Fireflies.
Then comes Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away.

To bad Hayao Miyazaki didn't do the Earthsea movie...
It could have been so good. sadblauw

Grave of the Fireflies might just be the saddest movie ever made, but it is brilliant, I'm a big fan of Princess Mononake, and I do like Spirited away, not one of my favourites but it's good (it's just a bit too weird for me - I'm a big fan of standard Manga series like Tri-Gun, Ninja Scroll and GunGrave) but my favourite has to be Howls Moving Castle, I just think it's absolutely brilliant. I also love Laputa, although I'm as of yet to see Nausicaa, and I've been told I really should.

Yeah, I thought it was a bit too disney...if you catch my meaning..too many distractions.

Spirited away was my first and therefore my favourite because it just, stunned me...
If think you'll always have a 'special bond' as such to the first one of those films you watch...

Nausicaa is really good btw...
I LOVE my neighbour totoro...it makes me smile....

*Tundra faints with shock....
WOWOWOWOOWOWOWOOWOWOWOWOOW!

I was really impressed with Princess Mononoke, but I don't think that its the 3rd best animation film (according to a survey taken in japan; 1st; spirited away, 2nd; howls moving castle)

I'm a big fan of Ghibli films, especially those by Hayao Miyazaki. Can't wait till his new film, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, gets released this July ^^

*sighs* They are fabulous.
They are a bit...well...odd, but you soon get used to them. They are very differently paced from studios like Disney, but I don't see disney the same way now, compared to these they're waaay to shiny and plastic.
Try watching Spirited Away, or Howl's Moving castle...These are the ones that have had some of the best reviews; but they are all fabulous..

*I heart Totoro though...*
