Do you like Studio Ghibli films, anon?
I've been meaning to watch them. So far I've seen Spirited Away, Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies. My favorite so far is Grave of the Fireflies. How about you anon? Which one is your favorite? Do you think Earwig and the Witch will be any good?

I haven't actually watched a ton of them but I've been considering looking at grave of the fireflies.

Will you not crucife me for saying I've never enjoyed ghibli films and I even hate some of then? And that I would enjoy more a darker story taking during world war 2 in china with a nip soldier as the mc and with a simmilar artstyle to the one nazi victory anime?

Are you referring to Jin-Roh?
Replies: >>71 >>72
The best Ghibli films IMO are Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and Grave of Fireflies. I've haven't watched any new Ghibli films, because I've been watching other animes and mangos these past years, but I do back watch Princess Mononoke from time to time.

Is Jin-Roh some type of anti-nazi film or something? What exactly is the meaning?

The Natsoc victory in Jin-Roh only serves as a backdrop to justify the communist guerillas and some aesthetic choices such as the MG42s and KdF-Wagen used by the Police.

Yes. I watched Spirited Away and Kiki's Delivery Service so far and I liked them. I have yet to watch the other Ghibli films.

I can definitely appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into them. They are really high quality and nobody can really argue with that. I've seen many of the films, Mononoke maybe being the most memorable one.
But then on the other hand it's just not my cup of tea when it comes to the stories that are being told, and the way they are being told. Also imagine working for Miyazaki. Fuck!

Yes, they were the only anime I was introduced to as a child and they still hold up today. Beautiful art and stories, and the only anime I can watch dubbed.

I don't think Ghibli films are meant for adult men, even teenagers, as the imagery is quite dark, and there are a few fights. It's for children.

The best way to describe it is that Ghibli films are the children of Pixar films and Disney films. They're fun, they're adventurous, there are happy endings. They're ideal for kids but then there's something for adults called real life, and that's something very sophisticated. The quality of this so called real life is very high and a mere capitalistic Ghibli movie is, so to speak, a splatter of shit. If you go to Japan, if you buy a ticket to the movie theater, there's a huge queue of children. It's unbelievable, and their parents are so happy to see them there. But if you don't have kids, it's fine.
But of course, you can't compare any two films. One is a cultural masterwork and one is a stupid cartoon. But the Japanese audiences aren't very cynical. They think they're being cynical, but they're not. For us, that is exactly what a real critic would say. So, there are definitely limits in our language. So while I think that the critics of the Ghibli are wrong in their overall praise, I understand that life isn't a race, and Ghibli films are created by adults, but they're just money making machines, no love there.

Mr Hashimoto, who worked at Studio Ghibli for 20 years and said he was deeply saddened by its closure, thinks it is a pity that such a thing has happened.

He said that unlike films like "The Godfather", which were created with only adults in mind, Mr Hayao Miyazaki and his team of animators never forgot the young.

Mr Hashimoto added that at the end of the day, they were just puppeteers - there were so many hands that led to the final product.

Mr Hayao Miyazaki died last year, aged 76, leaving behind a body of work that was lauded in Japan and internationally.

On its Facebook page, Studio Ghibli said that it will "transition to other projects."

But where?

If it has not found a new producer to back it, Studio Ghibli is in danger of going out of business.

Ghibli movies are hilariously overrated.
The main people who like them are women, children, redditors with nostalgia goggles, and western liberal normalfags who are new to anime and don't like seeing anything "offensive".

Fixed that for ya

Ghibli is just the Disney of Japan (except at least Disney used to make females with attractiveness and sex appeal back in the day).
Either way, both are shit so no, you didn't fix it.
