I honestly have no clue because i had never heard of the series until I watched the movie. Its been a while since i had looked up some info on it though so my memory is foggy on what I read. I could look it up but... *is lazy* XD

Hm...this one is a tough one for me. I was first introduced to Ghibli's films first by watching My Neighbor Totoro when I was still working at Suncoast (we had it as one of the movies we would show) and it was my first real taste of Hayao Miyazaki's films. It really caught me although My Neighbor Totoro is not my favorite.

I would think that my favorite is a toss between Princess Monoke and Spirited Away. Both stories were really great and I just adore the animation in both.

Also, Ghibli films is probably one of those that I don't mind watching either the dub or subbed because the dub is really well done (yay for Disney!).

I love them all! I think my favorite is either Totoro or Nausica and the Valley of the Wind.

I've seen Nausicaa which is good too, but i don't think i understand all the hype behind it. I think thats mostly because if its anything Miyazaki does it ends up having very similar themes and plots as far the stories go. Usually man vs. nature. Don't mess with nature. That kind of thing. Its a good movie, but themes get kind of old.

Miyazaki does use the same themes of environmentalism and feminism a lot in his films but Nausicaa was one of the earliest of his movies to deal with these themes and I feel like he always uses these themes in creative and unique ways. Nausicaa is my personal favorite Miyazaki movie. I love its combination of fantasy and sci-fi elements, Nausicaa is such a wonderful and powerful herione and role model, and I love all the political conflicts and battles for survival. I'm also impressed by how prophetic this movie is. It's amazing yet depressing that Miyazaki predicted the tragic results of global climate change decades ago and now we're seeing intense storms and heat waves going on right here in the U.S. this past summer. I also love Nausicaa's techno style soundtrack because of how unique and different it is from Joe Hisaishi's other musical scores. My favorite non-Miyazaki Ghibli film is The Secret World of Arrietty. My mother and I got to see it in theaters and it was my first time seeing an anime movie in theaters and my mother's first anime movie ever. We both really enjoyed it and it was a wonderful experience. I was surprised at how many kids were actually there as I didn't think that many American kids knew who Studio Ghibli was. I know a lot of people hate Disney's dub but I actually enjoyed it and I actually like the Disney dub of Arrietty better than either the Japanese version or the UK dub.

I don't particularly hate Grave of the Fireflies but I can't bring myself to call it a favorite because calling it a favorite doesn't seem appropriate given its content, even more so considering it's based on a real story. It's like Schindler's List or movies about Anne Frank to me where the story is so heart-wrenching that it's beyond saying it's a favorite or not favorite.

Yeah you definitely have a point, but i think the problem was that Nausicaa i saw later on compared to the other movies. So when i got to it i was like "hey same sorta plot, theme...etc." and so i guess it didn't come across as amazing as it did for others.

But I'm not saying its bad either, because its really one of the most gorgeous films done by Miyazaki. That man is a god when it comes to animation.

Did anyone happen to watch Ponyo? While the story was on the younger audience side, the animation for it was just amazing. Nothing was 3D generated. All of the waves and water were hand animated and thats what I love about miyazaki, how traditionalist he is when it comes to animation.

I think thats why his films are so high quality.

I also love the disney dubs of all the ghibli films. Since Disney can afford good voice actors, i feel like the characters sound like they actually should.

Oh here's a fun little scavenger hunt: I noticed in Kiki's Delivery Service, when she is flying through the town..I think away from the cop, she passes a bus that says Studio Ghibli on the side, any other movies have easter egg's like that?

You can see the fox squirrels from Nausicaa in the scene in Laputa when Sheeta and Pazu are exploring the floating castle.

I've recently started watching all the Ghibli movies because for some reason I never did. My favorite so far is Spirited Away. Just captured me from beginning to end with its wonderful world. I also enjoyed Howl's Moving Castle and tonight I watched The Secret World of Arrietty, which takes place as my second favorite of all. I haven't seen it mentioned much here - have many others seen it?

I'm wondering if it's just me or if it sometimes feels a bit confusing the way things happen without explanation, especially the magic elements. I was especially confused by the last parts of Howl's Moving Castle but I looked into the wiki which helped clear it up a little. They're not big on explanations or expositions, I guess is what I'm saying Razz

I've seen Secret World of Arrietty. I was initially excited since it was based off the children's book "The Borrowers" and while it was a good movie, it's definitely one of my least favs. The pacing was rather slow for me and i was kind of bored by it. But the animation, as always, was amazing and gorgeous. Honestly if the story is lacking, i can still appreciate Ghibli films just for the animation alone.

My first one was Spirited Away, so that kind of already wins for my favorite. Kiki's Delivery Service is a very close second.

Wow this is so hard! I remember first catching Porco Ross on IFC when they were having a Studio Ghibli marathon and it instantly became one of my favorite animated films but it's a tie between that and Kiki's Delivery Service. I even cosplayed as Kiki for New York Comic Con last year! I also love Whisper of the Heart and Spirited Away.  Ponyo and Howl's Moving Castle are probably at the bottom of my list.

Hmm, for me, my very first studio ghibli film was Princess Mononoke and it remains to be one of my favourites today. I then went on to watch Spirited Away, Howls Castle and a few others. However, my all time favourite has to be Spirited Away. I just love that movie.

It has to be a toss up between Nausica Valley of the wind and Princesss Mononoke. To be honest all my interests in environmental issues stems from those two films as a tweeny. That and watching way to many nature documentaries on what use to be good channels like discovery and animal planet. 

Ghibli films touch the heart better then anything I know. I also really love whisper of the heart and its 'concrete road' rendition. ^^

I really do love the environmental messages that Princess Mononoke portrays. I never really understood it until I was older. It's amazing what you miss as kid and I think it's also a mark of a good studio that it has multiple plot layers that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

@Addelyn  *agrees*

Like Pixar they address adult themes in everything they do. Frozen has been confirmed that is abut how to address the very real issue of depression. Themes kids miss out on till they are older. Also Harry potter will be timeless because of the amount and complexity level of the themes it addresses.
