Watching “My Neighbor Totoro”

08 Aug

The Video: My Neighbor Totoro

My husband always tells me that I have a youthful heart. Honestly, I do. Not because I am naive or innocent but because I still love stuff that mostly young people do. Let’s take animation for example. Who couldn’t love animated movies? Almost all kids do love animation. First and foremost it will certainly hone kids imaginations and they’re more exciting. 

Few weeks ago I found out that animated movies can easily be found anywhere in the net. Wow! I felt relieved when I found one. I’ve known the movie three years ago but haven’t watch it. I thought the movie was really good since it’s created by the most famous writer and director Hayao Miyazaki. Indeed, it’s a good and exciting movie. The characters were perfectly presented. Knowing that the main characters were played by young children. 

Well, not all who loved animation are kids but I believe those who dare watch animated movies possesses a youthful heart like me.

    I agree, It’s funny we have friends come over and they laugh because I still love to watch more animated shows and movies then real life. My though is I see real life everyday. I don’t want to watch it for fun : ) My other excuse is as an artist i need inspiration and since I don’t take LSD anymore this is the next best thing.

      Thanks. I feel the same way with you. I believe the artists behind these animations are really amazing and they are all inspirations to us. But still I love to feel the fun. I mostly enjoy the things I do and just be happy with it. ^^

    Lots of adults never lose their love of those things that delighted them when they were young. Thank goodness 🙂

    When my children were young I don’t know who like the animated movies more…me or them…good on you, it’s a lovely way to be.

      Wahahaha. probably the same. Most of the time my son and me share thoughts and lessons about the animated movies we watch. It’s making us more close to each other and that I believe is a good thing. Thank you mindfulness.

    wahahaha. I’ve watched all those already. They’re also good. I mean very good. Have you watched Ponyo? That is also good and The origin of the spirit of the past. Maybe you’ve watched them already too.

    My little sister and I still go crazy whenever we hear/see mention of “My Neighbor Totoro”! She’s got a body-sized pillow of that guy on her bed and still sleeps with it, though she’s turning eighteen soon. It cracks me up that we can still laugh and get ecstatic about seeing it–I hope that that never changes between us… and I respect anyone who hasn’t lost that child-like sense of excitement and wonder! :3

      It will, Mayville. I’m sure of it. I believe everyone of us got the child within and normally never grows old just got triggered when needed. Thank you.

    The last animated movie we saw was “Brave” and I really enjoyed it. Have you seen it?

    “The Lion King” was great too. Our daughter, who is starting her third year at Stanford, loves it. She’s even seen the stage version.

    When I was living in Houston, the Fine Art Museum did a series of Japanese Animated movies this summer & this was one of them. I enjoyed this movie immensely! The story was great and I have been looking for it online to watch again, but haven’t found it (in english). I wanted to watch it with my husband because he loves anime. I lit up when I saw this post! 🙂

      Perfect! That’s it. It is also the way I live my life. And I think I’m pretty much satisfied. Thank you for the opinion.

    Great post, and an excellent discovery. When my children were little, we watched this fabulous film over and over and over . . . . I loved it as much as they did.

      Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts about the movie. Yes, it is indeed beautiful and I watched the movie several times too along with my two kids who also love the movie so much. They even memorize few lines and say it along with the character.
