    You asked for Studio Ghibli com­ments at the end of this epis­ode. Very hard to pick a favour­ite from My Neighbour Totoro, Whisper of the Heart, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, or about six or sev­en others.

    I think what sets Studio Ghibli apart as a pro­duc­tion house – and what gives it such an incred­ible bat­ting aver­age – is that it prizes char­ac­ter above all else. Its films are routinely enter­tain­ing, thrill­ing, magic­al, and thought-provoking, but the drama only exists to serve char­ac­ter devel­op­ment. Imagination with a beat­ing human heart.

    I wish I could say the same for the cur­rent glut of super­hero films! But it’s a bless­ing, I sup­pose, because then I’d be broke.
