Harley Peterson
Grave of the fireflies should be higher on the list
Amv Girl
1. Spirit Away 2. My Neighbor Totoro 3. Howls moving castle those are my favorite tbh.
Sam1Fi
what makes my neighbor totoro so good is that its not 100% clear that is totoro real or just a product of the girls imagination as an escape of the harsh reality of their mothers sickness.

It's sad that I spent my entire childhood watching Disney movies If I had a time machine I would go back as a child and watch all the studio ghibli movies......
Sidda
Princess Mononoke is definitely my number one!! I love this movie so much!!
Incognito Burrito

Ethan Bennett
Ponyo is what got me into Studio Ghibli but I love them all
Nathalie from Poland
Grave od the fireflies is the best
Meej
Thank you for giving Whisper of the Heart some love! I find that it's very underrated and overlooked! Thank you so much! It's my absolute favourite movie
Mohaimen Scott
When Marnie Was There 💚 Spirited Away ❤️ Howl's Moving Castle 💜
kingofbrawl128
I would have to pick Ponyo as my number one choice. It’s one of those movies I could just watch over and over again... the visuals and the soundtrack are breathtaking. But the best part is the relationship between Ponyo and Sosuke. It’s so wholesome and pure...
Jacob Schaller
Hayao Miyazaki to anime is what Walt Disney did with animation, what Dr. Seuss did with children's literature, what Shingeru Miyamoto did with video games, what Stan Lee did with comic books, and what Akira Toriyama did with manga.
Lenny Boy
Spirited away❤❤ it was the first ghibli movie I've ever watched❤😤👌
Adrian K

Choi Claire

Ahmad Walker
among all these series, I just watched Spirited Away at the age of 20 ... why ??? why ??.... :' now I want to watch Howl's Moving Castle, and also others
andrew southward
all of the studio ghibli movies are great
JackHammer87
2:15 2:23 Well of course it didn't win because we all know how biased the oscars are towards animation most of the time (although personally, I think Dragon 2 should have won that year)
madi young
Growing up, I watched Ponyo a lot, so it brings back a lot of great memories. Ponyo is my #1.
Nasty Plot
Not surprised Ocean Waves isnt mention nor shown here though is a very underrated movie imo.
Kenji Ng

Make It Happen

DIMEX 05
Ok I grew up on studio Ghibli.
Mario Biscotti
Sorry to be that guy, but being raised with the Japanese versions since I'm half Japanese, the English dubs don't always do a great job translating the feelings behind the Japanese words... though to be fair, Japanese and English is hard to compare, but the fact that My neighbour Totoro isn't higher up.
Hoang LE
Everything from Studio Ghibli is so freaking magical! I grew up watching their movies. But I must say Spirited Away is my all time favorite. It is truly legendary, the first time I watched it was when I was 10. The movie is a masterpiece that I don't think any, any animated movie can beat, not even Toy Story (im a big fan of Pixar too). It's just so magical, so sophisticated, the drawing, the story, the music, from emotional to happy to scary. It is the best of the best!
Regenarc Canis
Kiki’s delivery service is my number 1
Dustine Castillo
you never listed When Marbie was There.......
Miss Roro
