My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro has always been my favorite Ghibli film, and having just watched it again this morning (for the nth time), it remains my fave. I just love everything about it, from the atmosphere, the depiction of children, the magical surrealness, all weaved around a dead simple (and at times sad) story. Think I’ll watch another Ghibli movie today, possibly Princess Monohoke, which on the opposite end I’ve never liked much.

Studio Ghibli Merch at Hot Topic


Hot Topic has a surprising large amount of merch — t-shirts, hoodies, and more — based on properties from Ghibli movies (like the My Neighbor Totoro tee pictured in this post). Most of it is surprisingly cheap too. Found via my buddy Shane.
