    Oh yes! But I think Howl’s Moving Castle is my absolute favorite.

  2. Love studio Gill films, though hard pushed to choose between Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle. There is such joy and craftsmanship in them. Though have to say I actually prefer the book of Howl more.

  3. Ghibli. ..I am beginning to hate the self correctin text on this tablet.

  4. I am also a massive Totoro fan. We are currently reading the book, that is translating as we go in our Japanese class. Suffice to say that this is about the level of my Japanese😂. Some years ago in Nagasaki we saw an exhibition of the artist who drew many Miyazaki films including Totoro, it was amazing. They are all watercolours and astounding when you see them in real life.
    I’d also recommend Spirited Away which was shown on SBS just before Christmas – it might be there still in ‘on demand’. Best souvenir from my last trip to Japan – my very own Catbus toy!

  5. I have loved every moment watching movies from Studio Ghibli with my grandhearts . . . some of them more than once like Totoro.

    And Japan . . . I loved holidays there but didn’t much like living there for a number of reasons. The years I lived in Bangkok were wonderful because I was able to afford to travel to so many places around the world.

    Oh, Catbus! “Next stop, little sister!” We love it too, Mo.

      we watched Spirited Away a few days ago it’s brilliant and deep and fabulos but I love Totoro, it’s from a different era in animation before CGI effects
