So over Summer I finally watched a few films I've been meaning to watch for ages.  One of them being My Neighbour Totoro.

The story follows 2 little girls and it's one of the cutest films I've ever seen.  If you love sweet stories then definitely go and watch this film!

My Neighbour Totoro was written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.  After watching, and loving, this film so much I decided to check out some of his other films.  So far I've watched Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa: Valley of the Wind.  While these films are all different you can see certain similarities.  There's always a nod towards what I'm assuming is traditional Japanese spirituality, although I'd have to research Japanese traditions a little more before being certain about this.  There's something magical about all of them and the animation itself it just beautiful.

If you've never seen an anime film then I suggest you start with something by Hayao Miyazaki.  It's like watching a painting tell you a story.

Speaking of painting I became a little obsessed with Totoro so decided to do a little fanart...

Your opinions would be much appreciated!!!


  1. I LOVE Totoro!! So cute! I love your fan art! x

  2. YAY TOTORO!!! I wish he was real and he would take me flying somewhere and we could ride on the cat bus together :D I've seen this fanart before of course but now I'm thinking maybe you should've added his big fluffy tail out the side or something

  3. Award!
