Girl: "Ehhh---- (disgusted)"
Me: "---And that's a joke. Definitely Laputa."
Girl: "Right? Laputa's really good."
Why can't I say Porco Rosso?
I don't see the problem there. Porco's very dashing too.
Me: "Hōhokekyo Tonari no Yamada-kun (My Neighbors the Yamadas)."
Girl: "What the heck is this guy saying."
Me: "My neighbor Totoro."
Girl:: "Ah... (realizes something)"
But Porco Rosso's good, people who don't get it's appeal have no balls.
Be proud of it.
Even if I say Umi ga kikoeru (Ocean Waves) no one knows about it
I don't think anyone will react that way with a proper Ghibli movie, though.
But you like Gedo senki (Tales from Earthsea)? Of course people will think you're a nutcase.
Won't Panda! Go, Panda! do?
Whatever anyone may say, it has to be Majo no Takkyubin (Kiki's Delivery Service)
Umi ga kikoeru (faint voice)
I really can't agree with people who consider Gedo Senki trash
All Ghibli animes are masterpieces, so you can just say whichever one you like.
Well, true that I'd have a hard time reacting if someone told me they liked Gedo Senki, though.
Me: "Princess Mononoke."
Girl: "Ehhh--? Yuck, that's gross!"
Me: "Ha? (Intimidating)"
The great justice that is Spirited Away
Girl: "I just said Ghibli, Imma kill you baldie."
(Totoro as my favorite) Got a problem with that??
Me: "Neko no ongaeshi (The Cat Returns)."
Girl: "Really... (uninterested)"
Is what happened.
But why? Haru-chan's so cute!
(Kaze Tachinu) Got a problem with that?
I like Ponyo
So I watched Kaguya Hime with zero expectations, but I found it surprisingly good.
I'd bang Kaguya Hime in a heartbeat.
Right now, the "in" thing to say is definitely Kaze Tachinu
Me: "Spirited Away."
Girl: "F*cking loli pedophile."
There was a day when they showed Umi ga kikoeru and Gedo Senki back to back, right?
And thanks to Umi ga kikoeru shown after Gedo Senki, its reputation shot up.
Howl's Moving Castle for sure
It's Panda! Go, Panda! though...
Me: "The manga version of Nausicaa."
Me: "My bad, it's MimiSuma (Whisper of the Heart)."
Girl: "That's even worse."
I love Umi ga kikoeru
I'd bang Haru-taso in a heartbeat
Neko no ongaeshi was pretty ordinary story-wise, but the ending song by Ayano Tsuji was such a classic
They had a lot of issues with the order of broadcast this year,
but Ponpoko > Mimi wo sumaseba > Neko no ongaeshi
followed the timeline properly.
It all had the same setting.
Naoko of Kaze Tachinu is a fine woman, but that one actually makes you realize that there's no such person in real life
I like Totoro
I'd bang Chizuru Ikewaki in a heart beat during the time of Neko no Ongaeshi, though
I like Porco and Howl
So I can't like Ponyo?
But I actually didn't understand it.
Neko no ongaeshi (white eyed)
I think people will be grossed out the most by Ponyo
What's up with people getting grossed out by those who like Princess Mononoke?
No mention of Arietty up to this point
Me: "Omohide poro poro (Only Yesterday)."
Girl: "What's that?"
I love these single portraits of "how things are after a few years"
