Have I mentioned my recent love of Studio Ghibli films? I am not usually into animated films, though I was into Sailor Moon when I was younger [Thanks, Shelly ]… and I loves me some Hello Kitty. I guess I’m a wanna-be asian. hahaha.
Either way, Studio Ghibli really grabbed me! Mitchel suggested Howl’s Moving Castle on one rainy weekend day at the library. We checked it out and I was purposely avoiding it when choosing which movie to watch, but it was inevitable… the film called out to me and we eventually watched it.
And oh… my… goodness. It has been a love affair ever since. We’ve watched Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, The Secret World of Arriety, My Neighbor Totoro, and Spirited Away. We have Kiki’s Delivery Service waiting for us at our apartment. AND I’ve already put Ponyo, Castle in the Sky, The Cat Returns, and Pom Poko on request from the local library.
