We watched Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro last night. It's a story of two young girls with a hospitalized mother and a working father who move to a new neighborhood and discover the gigantic Totoro living under a nearby tree. Don't know how to explain what Totoro is - a giant creature invoking undeniable images of Pokemon. I liked it, but like many of Miyazaki's cartoons I ended up asleep before the sucker ended. Even my extra strong iced mocha wasn't enough. Anyhow, this all started with a recommendation to see Spirited Away from Endo-san. That was ok, a little bizarre, but in a good way. I actually prefer Kiki's best, but we still have Mononoke and a few others to go. Hurray for Netflix.
