I would say that's not true.  You can enjoy it without analyzing what the characters mean in depth.  If you want to look into the story's many hidden points, I would do that after watching it for the first time. *giggles* I still don't do that yet and I've seen it over 10 times! *huggles DVD*  There are some times which can be confusing because of the culture clash, but you can move on pass them pretty quickly.

*shrugs* The second Haku came on the screen, it screwed any hope of me looking deep into the plot. I spent the rest of the movie like this:
"Dhuuur...pretty Haku..... :shock: "
You want a sweet little bishie, watch the movie. The plot is nice too XP

Rofl, yeah, I had the same problem, essentially.  I was like... "Eh, who cares about this little girl, WHERE'S HAKU!"....  The ending of the movie bugged me.  :P  Actually, bugged my whole family.  Oh well, kinda like the ending of Mononoke that way... not necessarily a perfect 'the world is wonderful!' ending.

I thought Spirited Away was a great movie! But I'm familiar with the culture, so I didn't have a clash. Even if Ididn't know, I think it's still a great movie. *hugs Haku* He's adorable! I wanna see someone cosplay  as him!

Didn't you guys see the cello and violin players outside the dealer's room? They were dressed as Chihiro and Haku~ they were damn good musicians to! They were both girls tho, so I guess I can understand wanting a guy to cosplay Haku...

Ramen and Rice. They play near the dealers room every year to help pay their way to Anime Expo. Ive been thinking of bringing my sax for the last couple years and making some cash between their sets, but I can never find time to practice (or find sheet music for sax for anime/vg tunes.)

I loved the ending to Spirited Away ^.^ Ive seen four of his movies and all the endings are good, if a bit inconclusive. What happened to Kiki? Why does she fly around on that pushbroom instead of getting a cooler one? And whats up with San and Ashitaka? Did they hook up or did he marry one of the iron town girls or what? And did Chihiro ever try to find her way back to the spirit world? She must have noticed the hair tie. Grave of the Fireflies was the most conclusive, but DAMNED if it wasent the saddest...

Anyway, Ive got the first volume of the Nausicaa manga. Gotta get the rest and then finish it off. ^.^ After that will probably be Laputa.

Oh! And Totoro! That makes five. But I dont remember much about what happens at the end of that, so no comment.

Must be.  Otherwise I'd have been a bit lost having first seen it on DVD.  Yep right there under the setup feature I see audio and captions and subtitles.

Did somebody say Bishie?

Oh yeah.

Spirited Away was darn good, but Nausicaa is still by far my favorite Ghibli film.

The ghibli-written/animated, or written/animated by key Ghibli memers films are as follows:

My Neighbor Totoro
My Neighbors the Yamadas
Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind
Princess Mononoke
Porco Rosso
Spirited Away
Kiki's Delivery Service
Castle in the Sky: Laputa
Whispers of the Heart
The Cat Returns
Pom Poko
Only Yesterday
Grave of the Fireflies

Coming up....

Howl's Moving Castle
 and...

(This one'll really get ya'!)

Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.

It surprised me, but from the preview that I watched last month, it looks #^&&@^ phenominal.

I STILL have the newspaper from when Spirited Away came out. The article talks about how awesome it is, and how disney only wishes they could make movies that good in any respect XD

I remembered reading an article too about Spirited Away, it was interesting to read too, but in my house that probably had gotten thrown away  :roll:
