This movie was very weird.
It was my first anime and I did enjoy it.
The visuals on this movie were really great and I really enjoyed the story. The problem I had with is I felt like Totoro just wasn’t in it enough for him to be in the title. I didn’t really know who he was till half way through and even then he was only in it for like 15 minutes of the whole movie. I just wish I could see him a bit longer and understand him a bit more.
I really like the weirdness of this film from a cat bus to a simple old lady who gives me the hibby gibbys.
I like both of the main characters a lot more then I thought I would.
But the thing in this film that really stood out to me was the music. Unlike most films there were parts where there was no music, no talking just animation. And watching that was beautiful. The music was great but when there was no music at all that was just amazing.
