Wow I have a lot of favorites since I enjoy Ghibli! I really like Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Ponyo, and Castle in The Sky.

HOWL.

Howl is love. Sophie is 2cute4me. The story is adorable and the world is rich with detail. <3 not even Spirited Away captured my heart so easily.

I like a lot of Ghibli's movies, but the ones I like the best are The Tale of Princess Kaguya and Whisper of the Heart.

I love all of them but Howl's Moving Castle is my go-to Ghibli film. It wasn't my first (Princess Mononoke had that honor, followed closely by Spirited Away) but it's the one that spoke to me the most. Honestly, I think it's the most Disney-ish Ghibli film - and maybe that's why it's so dear to me, it feels a bit like a combo between my favorite things in the world <3. And of course, after loving the film so much I had to read the book as well and it was awesome...

I'm going to be bland and say Spirited Away. It's an incredible film and is one of five movies that I can watch over and over again without getting bored. I like it as a film, not even just as an animated film.

My Neighbor Totoro comes in second for me if only because I have a very close connection to my own sisters. I would put Howl's Moving Castle higher on the list but it's simply too long for its own good. I also don't like the added war sequences. I think the story was fine enough without it.

Why is saying spirited away being bland?

It tends to be the most popular choice is all. It was even well known amongst non anime fans for a time.

I LOVE the book!! It got me into reading Diana Wynn Jones, you should def find her other works. She is amazing.

I haven't seen any studio Ghibli film that I haven't liked...with the acceptation of tales of earthsea
Kiki's delivery service, spirited away, howl's moving castle, ponyo, my neighbor totoro and Arietty are at the top of my list in that order. 
I recently bought grave of the fireflies at rightstuf's legendary holiday sale for $5, but have heard it's a tearjerker and haven't been able to muster up the courage to watch it yet.

I know this makes me a special little snowflake but I hate Grave of the Fireflies with a passion. The animation is great, of course. But watching it I felt very emotionally manipulated - the same reason I hate "Boy in Striped Pajamas" with the same amount of passion. And instead of feeling sorry for the main character I pretty much wanted to push him off a building because the tragedy (trying not to spoil for people) only happens because of his pride and arrogance.

But people usually love it, so I'm willing to bet you'll enjoy it too, Cosmos-Hime Laughing

I'm with you on this one. Grave of the Fireflies is terrible. It could have told the same story without resorting to some of the things it did. It baffles me that it's supposed to be a cautionary tale about not respecting your elders when the aunt is portrayed as an absolute witch.

The fact that it's somewhat based on a true story makes it all the more worse, though I hear that they stretch some of the realities of the situation like The Wind Rises.

Exactly! And the aunt was a witch but the boy

Even thinking about that film annoys me...

I haven't seen all the films.

But I have seen Kiki's Delivery Service, Howl's Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro, and Princess Mononoke.


That being said, Princess Mononoke is my favorite one.
For one thing, I absolutely love wolves.
I thought the story was fantastic. Kind of dark. But still charming and lovely.
And the music was fantastic in my opinion!

Grave of the Fireflies is one of those movies I could only watch one time.  I don't regret watching it if only because it seems like we rarely get WWII movies that are told from the Japanese perspective as it seems like most of them are told from the Western perspective but I don't think I could go through all the tragedy all over again.  To me though Grave of the Fireflies is one of those movies that's beyond like or dislike and it's like something you watch for the historical educational value of it rather than because you like watching it, if that makes sense.

I love Howl's Moving Castle. I found out it was based on a book, so I read the series afterward. I'm actually super glad I saw the movie first because I have a feeling i would have hated how different the movie was if I had seen it second. But As it stands, I view them as separate, but vaguely related, entities. It's like they're second cousins that have the same last name and their noses are similar.

Thanks to Ghibli's Howl's Moving Castle, I got into reading Diana Wynn Jones and I am ever so grateful even if the plot of Howl's Moving Castle just doesn't make sense when you think about it. xD It was such a beautiful movie though, it brought me to tears the first time I watched it.

I haven't seen all the films, but Ponyo and From Poppy Hill have been two of my favorites! I haven't seen Arrietty yet. I also disliked Grave of Fireflies very much.
