    I never realised until watching the Ghibli documentary film that Anno was the voice of the lead character in the Wind Rises.

    Hideaki Anno ...

    It was amusing watching the documentary where Miyazaki says he enjoys bullying Anno.

    Poor Anno


    This is why we can't get 3.0+1.0

    It's all Miyazaki's fault

    In reality, Gendou/Shinji is just a represention of Anno/Miyazaki, with Isao Takahata as SEELE

    I haven't had a chance to watch the wind rises yet. Good to hear positive things though!

    I will always love Howl's Moving Castle best. Though Nausicaa is close. The Wind Rises was ok, but not a standout to me.

    Alright so

    I know this is a revived thread, but since most people now have access to a streaming service that has 20+ Ghibli movies (most recently HBO Max) maybe now's a good time to watch a ton of them and give your impressions?

    My answer hasn't changed in the past three years. Still Kiki's Delivery Service.

    When it comes to the Ghibli films, the only one I have seen is Kiki's Delivery Service so I will go with that.

    I was very confused about me making a thread when I Hadn't in here in a bit.

    Mononoke is still best girl.

    lol necro

    Though I was actually just reading this thread a few days ago. Weird

    I think for me it's definitely a Miyazaki movie. I personally think Mononoke is the best over-all movie. But my personal favorite is Nausicaa. And neither of them were my first Miyazaki or Ghibli movies, so there's no playing favorites with formative experiences. And while I respect people's choices, I honestly feel like Howl and Spirited are some of the more weaker movies with lots of random nonsense that had little plot relevance that I could tell. I've never went back to Howl's after my first viewing because it was a weirdly disappointing experience, and the only reason I've seen Spirited Away multiple times is because I know so many people who's favorite anime is that one, and I'm engaged to one of those people

    Now I'm all for a kooky Alice in Wonderland fever-dream. But I feel like there needs to be a linking thread of consistency woven in and I found it hard to draw that line in those. The overall plots are interesting, especially Spirited. I just lose interest when they just start getting crazy for no apparent reason. It makes it weird to say that I like Laputa more than either movie, because I feel like it's a fairly weak movie, but it's just straightforward and charming and doesn't stray into nonsense for no reason, so it defaults higher on my list. I do find it to be a guilty pleasure though and I'm not sure why I should be ashamed of liking it other than the fact that it's mostly just generic Nausicaa and Mononoke all over again without the stellar writing of Nausicaa or spectacle of either
