      "Studio Ghibli does such a fantastic job at producing movies that there is nothing bad to say at all. Spirited Away is no exception. Hayao Miyazaki directed the movie and really brought the story of yokai alive. I have always been a huge fan of Studio Ghibli and will continue for a very long time. I can't wait to see what they produce next and will be one of the first to get my hands on it."

      "My Neighbor Totoro is a beautifully animated anime movie, that explores the magic of nature. This is more of a kids' movie, however, some adults will also enjoy it as well. Disney recently acquired the license for this anime movie and have changed the voices for the dubbed version, so if you have seen this in the past this could be somewhat strange to hear the voice changes."
