Studio Ghibli

Studio Ghibli is a japanese animation studio responsible for films such as Spirited Away, Ponyo and Howl's Moving Castle. The studio was founded by Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata.

Anyone who is familiar with or a fan of will probably know the name Miyazaki - one of the most well respected and greatly talented animators of our time. Takahata while not as popular is by no means inferior known for his neo-realism and naturalism which is not common in animation, particularly to western audiences. Some people think of this studio and miyazaki as being the "japanese disney" but this couldnt be further from the truth.

as you've probably noticed I have a huge boner for this studio. It's films are so mesmerising and IMHO surprass any disney film ever made, in the sheer detail and layers to the stories and the characters. This topic is basically to discuss these films for anyone who has seen any of them.
My all time favourite has to be My Neighbour Totoro, for me it is the perfect example of a Miyazaki work, and makes me feel like a young kid again.

Nice choices guys. I do love nausicaa but I feel mononoke was basically its successor and drove home the same message in a more effective way. Both great films though.

One I would recommend that is not quite as well known is whisper of the heart. It is not directed by Miyazaki but it is written by him i'm pretty sure. Basically a romance/coming of age movie but done really well. I'm not usually a fan of romance in anime but its all done so well. While it doesn't have any magical or mystical story elements it definitely has that miyazaki touch in the script and the director did an amazing job with it.

Also another thing to touch on is that on the whole the dubs of those movies are really high quality. Only ones I would avoid are for kiki's delivery service and castle in the sky, both of these dubs mess too much with the script, adding in and taking out elements of the story that just shouldn't of been messed with. But on the whole the dubs are great.

I didn't like how it was just you getting "protect the environment" shoved down your throat the whole movie.

interesting, I always felt the opposite. nausicaa felt more preachy where as mononoke while having that strong environmental message, gave a fair look at the other side of the story too with the town that made guns (i forget the actual name)
