    Hi Dan,

    I enjoyed your pod­cast and it’s great to hear Sarah, Tim, Liam, David and Dominic’s points about how Studio Ghibli’s work has touched them. 

    I would like to say I’m an avid fan and admirer of Studio Ghibli’s work. Miyazaki is one of My favour­ite artists and dream to be even half as good as he is. I have a small col­lec­tion of Studio Ghibli’s work and would really love to add to it to inspire me, motive me, and show what great­ness looks like.

    It will be greatly missed, not only for the tech­nic­al bril­liance but abil­ity to tell a story that moves people and stands the test of time.
