My Neighbor Totoro is about a family who move to a new house in the woods. Totoro means troll in Japanese.But this troll can show himself to people that he wants to,otherwise he’s invisible. This is a good studio Ghibli so you know it’s going to have that aesthetic beauty to it.There are a few plot bits missing in the story. Throughout the film the family are visiting there mother in the hospital but we never find out what it is.It’s implied she’s been there for ages too.Great music in the film,sounds like an old snes game or something.Dakota fanning did some voice work on this.She was born 1994 and this film came out 1988… I guess this film maybe had a later release date for an English dub.

Here’s an anime from Ghibli Studios.I think it’s a steampunk film.The film’s not meant to be set in any specific time,not past or future,but in an alternative present where mechanics haven’t evolved past the steam engine.The film is about good and bad witches and wizards and spells cast by both.One of the best aspects of anime is you can get some really bizarre and unique stories.Western animation seems to stick to a set of strict plot guidelines,but Asian stuff can be really out-there.I did notice after a wee bit that Christian Bale was voicing the main guy and all i could think was Batman with that forced husky voice.Maybe the subtitled version would be better.The subs would be more accurate;they change the dialogue to sync with the lips which were animated originally for the Japanese script.
