My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro ★★★★

Watched it for the first time and it's as good as I've heard. I love how low-key the plot is and how gradual the introduction of the spirits side is, kind of the exact opposite of Spirited Away. It's definitely very grounded and human in its story, and the spirits sort of complement the human issues as opposed to humans being lost in a completely new, spirit world.

Extremely adorable and filled with tons of fun little moments, though that's just standard for Ghibli. Will rewatch it when I'm not tired as fuck and forcing myself to not fall asleep while watching.
