So, aside from a movie or two, I had never really delved into the Studio Ghibli output. Sue me. I love animation, but I love a lot of things, and I always thought someone would foist it upon me, and that hasn't happened. Thus, in 2023, I finally decided to start making my way through the Ghibli output.
It does seem silly, however, to try to add to the conversation on these much-watched, well-loved films with millions and millions of fans, and plenty of ink spilled over them. All I'll really say is: what an absolute delight of a movie. I felt like I got the full Miyazaki experience on this one.
