Hey everybody! Shojo, here. :)

 

Do you know what one of my all-time favorite film companies is? Studio Ghibli!

 

 

Studio Ghibli

 

This movie industry is from Japan I think? Not entirely sure, but it's style rocks and it's painted backgrounds are simply breathtaking.

 The Secret World of Arrietty Trailer

(This is a snapshot of one of their movies, The Secret World Of Arrietty.)

 

I loved The Secret World Of Arrietty when I first saw it in theaters. It was so peaceful, and I soon found myself very attached to the characters in the end. :D

The story was based on a book, (which I have indeed read), and is overall pretty consistent if not better.

Is anyone else familer with Studio Ghibli?

Ah, another fan of an amazing studio! ^^ I remember I was a Studio Ghibli freak when I was younger, and my favourite movie was Spirited Away! <333 I still love it a lot! ^^

I also liked one that had a water creature that later transformed ot something in a boy/or was it a girl? xDDD And then the entire city was on water or something! xDDD I am not sure what it's name was, since I watched it a LONG time ago! O.O

Woah!

It's very encouraging to know that there are alot of other Ghibli fans out there! ;D

 

I haven't yet seen the film Spirited Away, but I have wanted to see The Cat Reterns ever since I watched Whisper of the Heart (another Ghibli film,)!

In Whisper Of The Heart, I remember well the "Baron" who was a china cat figure in the movie that inspired Shizuku to become a writer. :)

...I heard that the "Baron" was to appear somewhere in the former film, (The Cat Reterns), since the idea was to make Ghibli styled cats the stars. *teehee*

I shall have to ask my parents about watching it! ~_~ It would be nice to see another beautiful shot of some landscapes and cute fuzzy kittens.  Hahahaha!

 

Oh oh oh oh! I almost forgot! A few months ago I found a book while I was shopping that was a complete comic- book version of The Secret World Of Arrietty. I'm sure there are more Ghibli-based books out there as well!

I LOVE Studio Ghibli and the movies. My favorites are Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, The Cat Returns. So many lovely films. The only one I haven't watched is Grave of the Fireflies, for some reason I can't bring myself to watch it.

Same here! I postpone watching that one every time. I'm scared it'll be too sad.

Grave of the Fireflies is

Grave of the Fireflies is really sad at the end. If you're really emotional, I recommend not watching it. I won't give any spoilers away because I did see the movie and I ended up crying for a solid 10 minutes after it was over. But really, it's sad.

Studio Ghibli

Studio Ghibli! Yeeessssss! Finally some people know what Studio Ghibli is!! Sorry, I have to go squeal and fangirl over this. 

*30 minutes later*

Alright. Im back. Excitement was calmed down. Ok,I have to admit the first time I ever saw a Studio Ghibli production, my heart dropped. I believe my first movie was Spirited Away and then I saw all the other ones. The movies are so touching and sometimes make me want to cry at the end because of all the happiness and joy. 

I heard that the artist has finish drawing with the final production of The Wind Rises. Is that actually true or is that just a rumor? If it's true, nooooooo!

You mean, the retirement of the director? Apparently he has talked about stopping with work a few times, but he'd be pretty serious now. He announced it last year, in September I think.
