Spirited Away

Howl's Moving Castle

I know, I am probably the last person in the world to watch Hayao Miyazaki's most 'popular' films. Not sure why I never got round to watching them but I always presumed they'd be just another anime film. WRONG. So wrong.
I've cried watching both films. The narratives are so strong, the animation is so beautiful and the characters are so intriguing - don't think I'll be a film critic any time soon.
I watched Spirited Away first which I really love but after watching Howl's Moving Castle I think the story is much stronger (and I fancy Howl) but that could be because Spirited Away is more child friendly.
Both are definitely a must see!


  1. ohh I love both these movies! My husband got me into anime years ago...If you haven't seen it already I highly recommend Princess Mononoke!

  2. Yeah, beat my expectations x10000 and ace I will check it out soon :D x x x

  3. Howl's Moving Castle is one of my favourite movies EVER. And Howl is HOT :D I love pretty much anything Ghibli, I watched My Neighbour Totoro for the first time the other day and I loved that too. (Not as much as Howl though!)

  4. Glad I'm not the only one and I will need to check out that film too! x x x
