    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.
