Sorry for OT but I wanted to ask a similar question - sometimes I cant tell what track my reciever is playing even though my player is set up with Secondary Audio turned off It doesnt say on the display, just what speakers sound is coming from.

Has anyone seen the Spanish digibooks of Totoro and Howl's Moving Castle? They're BEAUTIFUL

I am sure you are right, but I will just wait for the U.K. steelbooks coming out late November that I already have on pre order.

I watched My Neighbor Totoro with my 3 year old son on Christmas Eve and for the first time in his life, he sat for the entire film while giving it his undivided attention. I had blind bought the film after hearing good things about it. I did enjoy it, but I think I liked the fact that he liked it even more.

With that said, which other Japanese animation films can someone recommend to me to watch with him? I know very little about Japanese animation and have only seen this film and Grave of the Fireflies. I'm looking for other G rated titles, although I don't necessarily mind a PG rated film if someone thinks that a 3 year old could kind of gather what is going on and enjoy the film.

Thanks!

Kiki's Delivery Service, Ponyo, and The Secret World of Arietty are all G-rated films that I'd think would be fun for a 3-year old. Castle in the Sky is PG and is a great adventure film that I don't think would be too intense or scary for a 3-year old.

There aren't many films like My Neighbor Totoro that penetrate the psychology of a child quite as effectively. MNT "gets it" because it knows what interests a child, and how they think. Most people will recommend other Ghibli films, and they ARE good. But only a handful approach the same level of psychology when it comes to children.

Ponyo and Kiki's Delivery Service are the ones that come to mind immediately.

Seconded on all the above.

Ponyo and Kiki, for sure (I haven't seen Arietty).
