When we say Studio Ghibli we immediately think of Hayao Miyazaki, and for good reason. I even wrote a post earlier this month about him and his work — which if you haven’t read take a look see. However, while I have seen some non-Miyazaki Ghibli films (i.e. The Grave of the FirefliesWhisper of the Heart) there are still a few of the films that they’ve produced that I’ve yet to check out, and I’m almost certain that they’re more than worth my time. 

So over the next five weeks I’ll be discussing the following films:

  • Only Yesterday (1991) (dir. Isao Takahashi)

  • Pom Poko (1994) (dir. Isao Takahashi)

  • My Neighbors the Yamadas (1999) (dir. Isao Takahashi)

  • The Cat Returns (2002) (dir. Hiroyuki Morita)

  • Arrietty (2010) (dir. Hiromasa Yonebayashi)

On an aside, in case you were wondering. This does not interfere with the randomness of the Movie of the Week posts I’ve been doing, which I missed this week anyway.

This is my blog. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My blog is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my blog is useless. Without my blog, I am useless. I must fire my blog true. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my blog and myself are defenders of my mind, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.
