千と千尋の神隠し

I can not believe it is 10 years since 千と千尋の神隠し (Spirited Away) came out. I was never really interested in anything Japanese when I was younger, and this movie was my first real meeting with anything Japanese. I am still not into Japanese anime, but the movies from Studio Ghibli are just amazing. Most people have probably seen this movie already, but if you haven’t, you can see a nice trailer here.

  1. I love Spirited away and (almost!) every other movie from Studio Ghibli. A couple of them are a bit to weird for my taste, but most of them are very cute!

      I still have quite a few movies from Studio Ghibli that I haven’t seen, but all the ones I have seen I have absolutely loved. I love the combo of traditional Japanese cultural influence and the general modern influence. And I also like that they aren’t as “cute” as Disney movies, I still remember the frogs in Spirited Away smoking cigarettes out the window 😉

      • Lets not forget “sotgnomene”!.

        If you havent seen these already, I suggest you go and watch them right about now!

        Laputa The Castle in the Sky (1986) – (Tenkuu no Shiro Rapyuta)

        Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind (1984) – (Kaze no Tani no Naushika)

        and

        Whisper of the Heart (1995) – (Mimi wo Sumaseba)

        Some of my favourites!

          Thank you so much for the wonderful tips! I loved Laputa and I remember it well (and loved it!), I think I might have seen the two others, but movies and me are not best friends, I forget 9 out of 10 after a couple of years. The good part about that is that I can watch movies several times and be surprised every time 😉 Time to re-watch them, I think!

    Wow.. I really haven’t thought of that. Time really flies by!
    I like some anime series, but I don’t watch it hardcore and follow news and stuff about it. That is too much for me, but I do have some favourite shows. The movies from Ghibli are amazing and I hope to see them all very soon.

      Incredible, huh? I was in senior high when I saw this! Now I almost feel old 😉 I don’t follow any anime-things either, I get confused when people talk about Naruto and all that jazz, I don’t even know what the most popular ones are! I think it is ok to not be interested in all aspects of a culture, I love Japan, but the pop-culture is actually not my favorite part.

    Å, Spirited Away fikk jeg aldri sett ferdig! Vi måtte runde av en halvtime før slutten forrige gang. Må gjøres noe med!

      Ja, det er en skikkelig finfin film altså. Jeg er ikke spesielt glad i tegnefilmer, men gjør et unntak for akkurat disse.
