Overview
Have you ever heard of Tenku no Shiro Laputa, (Laputa, Castle of the Sky) or Kaze no Tani no Nausicca, (Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind)? What about Hotaru no Haka, (Grave of the Fireflies)? If you've even heard one of these names before, you're probably already well on your way to opening the door to the world of Studio Ghibli. It is quite unfortunate that probably a great number of people have never heard of, or had the opportunity to view, these fantastic films. Studio Ghibli is a famous yet still under-rated animation studio based out of Saitama, Japan, which is close to Tokyo. So popular are these movies in fact, that every time a new one is released it creates an incredible wave of excitement in Japan and throughout Asia. Sometimes this wave is large enough to come crashing on the shores of the other side of the Pacific, but not always.
