Top 5 Ghibli

If The Tale of the Princess Kaguya was about 20-30 minutes shorter - basically cut out the part where the five nobles try to win her hand because it really dragged - it might be my new favorite Ghibli. I was blown away by the animation and found the story very moving.

Princess Kaguya made me feel things. One of the studio's strongest films, for me

Saw Whisper of the Heart for the first time a few months back - ended up watching it twice in succession

Probably my favourite Ghibli

Somewhat similarly I watched Grave Of The Fireflies for the first time ever a few months back. The first time by myself and I got fairly teary-eyed, the second time later that evening when I forced my wife to watch it while I was getting wine-drunk, and I broke into a straight-up crying jag.

goddamn im so stoked about this

Due out exclusively from Amazon on November 17th, The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki contains each of the maestro’s eleven feature films: Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo, and The Wind Rises.

But the highlight for those who already own all of these films on Blu-ray will be the set’s bonus features, including Yuki no Taiyo (Yuki’s Sun) — a 1972 television pilot based on a manga by Tetsuya Chiba that was directed, storyboarded and animated by Hayao Miyazaki. The set also contains three episodes (26, 27, and 41) of the 1972 anime series Akado Suzunosuk (Little Samurai), featuring storyboards by the filmmaker. Fans will also get the uncut version of Miyazaki’s Retirement Press Conference, which was thankfully not the final page in his career. The whole package is rounded off with a book featuring The Great Dichotomy: Looking at the Works of Hayao Miyazaki by Tomohiro Machiyama, which “explores the themes and techniques of this revered Japanese filmmaker, and selected text from Hayao Miyazaki’s initial notes and creative proposals for the production of each film.”

I saw a pristine 35mm print of Whisper of the Heart the other day. a nice reminder that it's the best Ghibli movie and also the best movie.
