    From Best to Worse:
    1.) When Marnie Was Here
    – The twist was so amazing and it’s so personal, I thought of my grandparents.
    2.) Grave Of The Fireflies
    – Amazing serious film about the reality of war and how it affects all of us.
    3.) Princess Mononoke
    – Great metaphor, symbolism. the film isn’t that slow and boring plus it’s full of action.
    4.) Castle In The Sky
    – Great metaphor, symbolism. the film isn’t that slow and boring plus it’s full of action.
    5.) From Up On Poppy Hill
    – A love story that will take you for a ride.
    6.) Spirited Away
    – An adventure story that will take you for a ride.
    7.) Whisper of the Heart
    – Awesome love story that shows how healthy relationships work. Learned a lot plus that film’s animation is superb!
    6.) Porco Rosso
    – This is the most masculine Studio Ghibli film! It’s like if Studio Ghibli was Marvel Studios
    8.) My Neighbor Totoro
    – Pretty basic story. The main focus is the branding of Totoro.
    9.) Ponyo
    – Love the animation in this film! The use of color is fantastic!
    10.) Kiki’s Delivery Service
    – Relatable. Love the metaphors used.
    11.) Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind
    – Awesome retro looking film. It’s like the orginal Princess Mononoke and Casle In The Sky.
    12.) Howl’s Moving Castle
    – Great concept but It’s kind of confusing and I hated the ending wasn’t even clear when Sophie’s spell was broken.
    13.) The Wind Rises
    – Loved the beginning but it became boring. Also I wished they could have done more in emphasizing WWII more.
    14.) The Tale Of Princess Kaguya
    – Loved the beginning but it became boring. Film is somewhat of a downer in the end.
    15.) Arrietty
    – Loved the concept but I wish they could have done more with the story. Pretty basic.
    16.) Only Yesterday
    – BORING!!!!!
    Loved the creativity in animation though
    17.) Pom Poko
    – ZzzzZZZzzz…it’s like a poorman’s Princess Mononoke
    18.) Ocean Waves
    – It’s okay. It’s not as good as the other Studio Ghibli love story films like Whisper of the Heart and From Up On Poppy Hill.
    19.) My Neighbor the Yamadas
    – Pretty basic, it’s just like an ordianry TV series episode.
    20.) The Cat Returns
    – Pretty basic story, nothing special, it does not stand out like other Studio Ghibli films
    21.) Tales From Earthsea – I lost interest in watching this film halfway through and didn’t even finish watching it.

    1 Spirited Away
    2 Tale of the princess Kaguya
    3 princess Mononoke

    Eventhough I think Spirited Away is the best. Kaguya is in my opinion the most impressive one. Special and incredible incarnate!

    My ranking:
    23) Earwig And The Witch – 1/10
    Terrible animation, terrible characters, terrible storyline. I can’t point out one good thing about this movie (slay)
    22) My Neighbours The Yamadas – 7/10
    It’s cute and fun, but a bit boring. Wish they focused on the daughter more. Great animation though.
    21) Porco Rosso – 7/10
    A great movie but not the genre for me. Porco annoys me.
    20) Ocean Waves – 7/10
    I actually really liked this movie up until the end. A relatable, relaxed storyline was a great idea for Ghibli. But Rikako was criminally annoying, and I wish the 2 male leads got together, as there was clear chemistry. I love the animation.
    19) Howl’s Moving Castle – 7/10
    I love Calcifer so much. However, so many interesting ideas and the storyline was so confusing in the second half.
    18) Tales From Earthsea – 8/10
    I get why so many people don’t like this movie, but it had me hooked from the beginning to the end. Hort Town is gorgeously animated and an interesting environment.
    17) The Cat Returns – 8/10
    This movie is so cuteeeee, I love how the storyline feels like something Shizuku from Whisper Of The Heart could’ve written. But underwhelming for a Ghibli film.
    16) Castle In The Sky – 8/10
    I love the robots soooooo much. But I can barely remember anything from this film. (also the English dub was traumatic)
    15) Only Yesterday – 8/10
    A masterpiece. The memories are so simple but effective, and would mean a lot to a lot of people. But I’m still in my teens and so this movie didn’t mean much to me, and I found it boring on occasion.
    14) Spirited Away – 8/10
    I can see why this is called one of the best Ghibli movie, but I couldn’t get into it. There were so many characters so I couldn’t connect with any of them, and the ending was… rough. But the scene at Zeniba’s house was amazing.
    13) Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind – 9/10
    The first half an hour is a bit boring, but all the following scenes are worth the wait. The ending is one of my favourite scenes in Ghibli history.
    12) Pom Poko – 9/10
    This is everything. So many incredible scenes that I will remember and love forever. But it’s not actually a very good movie- Love the environmental message though.
    11) The Secret World Of Arrietty – 10/10
    A really enjoyable movie, incredible characters. The ending had me heartbroken, and the animation and soundtrack is incredible. The villain was lacklustre though.
    10) Princess Mononoke – 10/10
    I love all the characters – Lady Eboshi especially. The storyline, animation and meaning are amazing. Just too much unnecessary gore for me.
    9) Ponyo – 10/10
    Such a feel good movie. The animation is beyond, Ponyo and Sosuke are so cute, Lisa’s driving is so funny, Ponyo’s ham, Ponyo expanding the toy boat. I love it all, the soundtrack is great too.
    8) Grave Of The Fireflies – 10/10
    This movie made me cry so hard, it’s incredible how animation can exude so many strong emotions. The scene when they catch the fireflies is beautiful, and them dying the next day hits so hard. Same when he burns his sister after her death. A masterpiece.
    7) When Marnie Was There – 10/10
    WOW. I felt so much watching this. Anna and Marnie are both great characters, and although I totally shipped them, the twist at the end was very well done.
    6) Kiki’s Delivery Service – 10/10
    Me and Kiki are so similar, so I relate to this movie a lot. Kiki and Ursula is such an amazing friendship, Tombo, Osono, Barsa and Madame Okusama are all so lovable. My favourite Ghibli scene is when Okusama gives Kiki her cake.
    5) The Wind Rises – 10/10
    Naoko is an icon, and so is Jiro’s sister. Jiro himself is an amazing and kind character, and even though I don’t like planes, this movie really touched me.
    4) The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya – 10/10
    This is the best movie ever made. The characters, the soundtrack, the animation, the storyline, the messages but most importantly the emotion. I cried at this more than I cried at Grave Of The Fireflies. The only reason this isn’t number 1 is that scene where the 4th option for a husband comes back with a flower, but I don’t know who scares him away. It made the movie quite a bit worse, as it really confused me.
    3) From Up On Poppy Hill – 10/10
    By far Goro’s best. Incredible. The storyline is complicated but not confusing, and the messages about dealing with the past is great. Shun and Umi have great chemistry (so happy it wasn’t incest), but the best thing about this movie is when she had her dream and remembered her father, and the animation in that scene was spectacular. I also love how she raises the flags every day.
    2) My Neighbour Totoro – 10/10
    I don’t wanna be basic, but this movie is so good. All the characters are amazing, and despite it being really magical, it seems extremely realistic and there is nothing I would change about this movie. The soundtrack is great, and the animation of the sky is so stunning. I love that scene when they’re all in the bath together in that windy night.
    1) Whisper Of The Heart – 10/10
    This movie meant a lot to me, and the joy I feel watching this is unmatched. Baron, Shizuku, Seiji and his grandfather are amazing. The scene where they play Country Roads together is so beautiful, and so is the ending.

    I love from up on poppy hill! I’d definitely rank it higher than ocean waves and only yesterday probably. I just love the balance of the funny bright scenes, the romance, and a bit of the history too. Plus the visuals of the school and city is so stunningg

    September 26, 2022 @ 4:47 pm

    But Nausicaa is sooooo good I feel like it should be higher on the list. It gives everyone amazing music, creativity, and has an extremely deep and important message. Not saying that the other films on the list where bad just saying that that movie was just incredible. Though I can agree with some of the top placements, like Princess mononoke.
