Okay, so I have this week off of work, so I've dedicated my days where I am not doing anything to watching several Ghibli movies in an row. Yesterday I ended up watching
Princess Mononoke - Pretty good, probably more impactful if I saw it around the time it first came out. It has an good story and visuals, I always love how Miyazaki does demons as well.
Grave of the Fireflies - I knew this one was depressing before going into it, but the level of how depressing it can be caught me off guard, I really appreciate the honesty of it however.
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind - This one caught me off guard, I really loved it, in fact it has shot up to Howl's Moving Castle with how much I love it. Definitely an great movie.
The Cat Returns - Less serious than the other selections, this one had me giggling muchly. I'd say if I ever wanted to watch another fun movie, then it'd be this one.
Then today I ended up watching
Whisper of the Heart - I really like this as an simple tale of young love, not much to it but it 's nice overall.
Tales from Earthsea - This one, also really caught me off guard witj how much I liked it. The animation wss one of the best I have seen, I will say. The story is super compelling as well. Right up there with Howl's Mpving Castle and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind for me.
Castle in the Sky - This one was good as well, an good story with animation that doesn't seem dated in the least, which kinda surprised me. I really like it.
Kiki's Delivery Service - Another good one, nice animation and story, though the end kinda made me sad an bit, but my understanding is that earlier versions had another line or two that made it slightly happier, but deviated more from the original script.
So yea, that is an lot of viewing. :3 The next two days I'll be going to the cinema, so I'll have to hold off viewing more, but I still plan on trying to catch up. I still have to watch for the first time
Lupin the III Castle of the Cagliostro
The wonderful world of Puss in Boots (just arrived today)
My Neighbors the Yamadas
My Neighbor Totoro
And I'd also to get in rewatchs of
Since I haven't seen them in an long time. Plus, I still gotta eatch The Girl who leapt through time as well. :3 Definitely makes for an fun week off however.
