Studio Ghibli Films

4 Dec

Studio Ghibli is the Japanese animation studio responsible for such beautiful and magical films as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Howl’s Moving Castle. If you haven’t heard of these films, I highly recommend them.  Hayao Miyazaki is the manga/animation artist and film director behind many of Studio Ghibli’s best films. I am obsessed with the films of Miyazaki and love everything put out by this studio.

These films have been a huge inspiration to my writing. Here are my recommendations:
