Yeah, Kiki's Delivery Service is good, but we were in the middle of a crisis while it was on: our shed door had frozen over (Easter 2013 in Ireland: absolute hell) and we needed to get coal out of it to light a fire, so I missed over half of itGRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES

THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS! I've loved doing that since I was very young!Princess Mononoke is now my favourite because of its thick plot and beautiful music, especially 'Journey to the West'. Joe Hisaishi is a music genius. A pastime of mine is working out the music and then playing it on the piano.
I do find it both ironic and amusing that Disney apparently has a problem handling a film with explicit references to menstruation, when one considers that:Sadly, it has yet to receive an official release stateside due to content that Disney deems questionable.
True, but let us bear in mind that Only Yesterday also has a bathhouse scene which essentially shows the lead character Taeko nude at age ten. No details are drawn, but the "suggestion" of nudity remains, which is probably enough for Disney to say "no".I do find it both ironic and amusing that Disney apparently has a problem handling a film with explicit references to menstruation, when one considers that:
1) Disney themselves made an (actually very well-done) animated film about menstruation back in the 1940s. (Not that modern day Disney likes to acknowledge everything their company got up to in the 40s, but still.)
2) They let all those tanuki testicles in Pom Poko slide (albeit under the totally unconvincing cover of "raccoon pouches").
