By the way, have you ever seen the Disney movie “hunchback of notre dame”? It’s one of my favorites and it’s musical might be even better. If you haven’t seen it already, I can highly recommend you to watch the movie (and maybe even the musical) at some point.
April 8, 2021 @ 1:32 pm
I adore this movie! I’m so excited to watch your reaction. 😀
April 8, 2021 @ 1:34 pm
The masterpiece from Miyazaki? I clicked so fast because this will be so damned heartwarming/breaking.
April 8, 2021 @ 1:41 pm
It could by taken. Because Studio Ghibli will gladly give you strike or two.
April 8, 2021 @ 2:00 pm
Definitely my favourite Miyazaki film
April 8, 2021 @ 2:03 pm
Love the Studio Ghibli movies. I hope Howl’s Moving Castle is coming soon.
April 8, 2021 @ 2:03 pm
I clicked on this so quick!!
April 8, 2021 @ 2:16 pm
I get so excited whenever I see someone is reacting to this movie!
April 8, 2021 @ 2:19 pm
Bruh how you ain’t seen Spirited Away
April 8, 2021 @ 2:25 pm
Anime films for the win. Highly recommend Your Name and if you are feeling brave A Silent Voice.
April 8, 2021 @ 2:53 pm
Now the Studio Ghibli movies are available through HBO Max!
April 8, 2021 @ 3:03 pm
I would love to see you react to Akira (1988) and Ghost in the Shell (1995) 🙂
April 8, 2021 @ 3:08 pm
Please be aware that studio ghibli is notorious for aggressivell copyright claims and destroying reaction channels with strikes!
April 8, 2021 @ 3:22 pm
My GF made me watch this for the first time the other week. I loved the first couple of minutes. Then after that I was…well…what…what the actual EFF is going ON?!?🤷♀️😄
April 8, 2021 @ 3:25 pm
A masterpiece and I’m always glad to see more people experience it.
April 8, 2021 @ 3:44 pm
Just don’t react to Grave of the fireflies. Not sure I could take it.
April 8, 2021 @ 3:58 pm
I hope you two react to vampire hunter d bloodlust at some point, it’s a beautiful movie :3

OMG! I so love it!!! I so like Spirited away!!! Watch the anime “5 centimeters per second”
April 8, 2021 @ 4:19 pm
I get the feeling Alex is going to get Jessa to watch “Akira” by telling her it isn’t violent.
April 8, 2021 @ 4:30 pm
Any chance of you guys doing The Dark Crystal or The Secret of N.I.M.H. in the future?
April 8, 2021 @ 4:38 pm
Ok, not a film, and not Miyazaki, but have you either of you two seen “Over the Garden Wall”? It’s a 10 episode miniseries starring Elijah Wood! Brilliant animated show!
April 8, 2021 @ 4:41 pm
Omg! My fav Miyazaki movie! I clicked so fast 🤏😁
April 8, 2021 @ 4:55 pm
I’m watching this while I can! Miyazaki reactions tend not to stay on YouTube for long.
April 8, 2021 @ 4:57 pm
Wonderful reaction like always. But be aware that Studio Ghibli is not a friend of youtube and they tend to make a lot of trouble. Vkunia reacted to many Ghibli movies and was taken down by their lawyers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ustI4Tq3TY
April 8, 2021 @ 5:48 pm
Onigiri ARE delicious. You can find them at your nearest Japanese (and even some Korean) grocery stores. 🙂
April 8, 2021 @ 8:31 pm
Please show her princess mononoke
April 8, 2021 @ 9:08 pm
Y’all sang Wait For Me. If I didn’t love ya before, I do now! If you made a Hadestown vid I’d certainly watch it!! 🚂💀🌹
April 8, 2021 @ 9:23 pm
Jessa : “SuperBook and Flying House are legit!!” 😄 …- Don’t worry Jessa, my siblings and I used to watch those too. I hope this is not your first and last Miyazaki film, because all of them are great!! … And Alex confessing She used to have a crush on Haku is like the cutest thing…
April 8, 2021 @ 9:44 pm
Very happily surprised to see a Ghibli reaction video. I heard the studio was very restrictive on their movies.
Cool to see you enjoy this! Nice role reversal with Jessa being the one not seeing the movie before.
April 9, 2021 @ 5:05 am
This was very good, loved the reactions and final thoughts 🙂

Best animated movie of all time… better than any Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks or other animated movie
April 9, 2021 @ 11:00 pm
Awesome! Other great anime movies to check out are “Your name” “A silent voice” “weathering with you”
April 10, 2021 @ 12:43 am
Excelente!! and this is the begining. Please check Ponyo in the cliff. Another side of tale The little Mermaid. Amazing Studio Ghibli masterpiece…or super romantic Howls moving castle. beautiful!!

I worked on the special features for the Disney DVD release 15ish years ago.
The hopping lamp was Miyazaki’s nod to Pixar.
Try why I consider the definition of movie magic, My Neighbor Totoro. There are several mostly wordless scenes that I would describe as actual perfection. And the kids are voiced by a very, very young Dakota and Elle Fanning (or as the original transcriber of their interview wrote before I retranscribed the whole thing, “Alf Annings.”)
April 10, 2021 @ 6:54 pm
It’s funny every time I watch this movie years later I completely forget the plot, only remember the visuals, then when I’m reminded of what happens I get completely emotional again and immediately forget what it’s about. Repeat into infinity.
April 11, 2021 @ 6:10 am
I’m sorry, but all I can describe this movie is just “weird” (Mononoke is way better…)
April 11, 2021 @ 2:20 pm
Holy shit, I wanna see cartoon Taken!
April 11, 2021 @ 2:23 pm
I was 27 when this came out and it is a favorite of *mine*. Really perhaps one of Miyazaki’s best stories.
(That said, you both need to watch his earliest films: Laputa, Nausicaa, and Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro.)
April 12, 2021 @ 7:05 am
Great reaction to a wonderful film.
Enjoy it before Studio Ghiblis attack dogs decimate this reaction.
April 13, 2021 @ 1:31 pm
ewww english dub
April 14, 2021 @ 9:24 am
it best to watch this many time tbh
after every watch i like it more specially now
April 23, 2021 @ 4:09 pm
Joe Hisaishi’s music always brings a tear to my eyes
April 24, 2021 @ 1:54 pm
You probably want to take this one down.. Studio Ghibli has been on the warpath with copyright strikes. A few reactors already lost their YouTube channels…
April 24, 2021 @ 5:14 pm
April 25, 2021 @ 8:50 am
I love how after my second viewing, I recognized Lilo’s voice actor, Meg from Hercules voice actor, and Tara Strong’s voice actor….
April 25, 2021 @ 5:42 pm
The image that stays with me from this movie, is that little shadow girl standing on the train platform. I dunno why, she just seems so mysterious.
May 7, 2021 @ 5:59 pm
I hate it when people call Anime a “cartoon”
May 10, 2021 @ 9:27 pm
This is the only Miyazaki film I saw in the theater. It’s good but not a masterpiece like his other films.
May 11, 2021 @ 12:02 am
Jessa speaks heaps about the difference between coming of age generally.
May 12, 2021 @ 1:45 am
Alex, watch this! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGp6grK1Cwo&ab_channel=KimonoMomKimonoMomVerified
May 17, 2021 @ 1:09 am
Try Howl’s Moving Castle uwu
May 17, 2021 @ 3:05 pm
Have you seen the anime “Hibike! Euphonium”. It’s about the imaginary Rikka High School Band. They’re suppose to be a famous unbeatable marching band nicknamed “Light-Blue Devils”. The anime is based off of a real life high school band, the Kyoto Tachibana Senior High School Band, also known as the “Orange Devils”. Recently it became very popular to react to the Kyoto Tachibana SHS Band, they are considered one of the top performing high school bands in the world, maybe you’ll like this to react to. https://youtu.be/toGxAWtWIM0

Why English dubs?? Original versions with subs are so much better… as a consequence, I didn’t watch the reaction video, when i actually love your reactions. Might seem snob and all, but i truly can’t stand any kind of dubbed movie.
May 18, 2021 @ 1:17 am
Every time I watch this movie, it serves to remind me, yet again, of just how great–how truly, truly great–I am.
May 31, 2021 @ 5:10 am
I watched this as a kid and I loved it. My number 1 though.
My neighbor Totoro

Hope you react to Howls moving castle.

June 29, 2021 @ 2:21 am
Did you really call this a cartoon really
June 30, 2021 @ 12:15 am
I think you would really really appreciate Studio Ghibli’s magnificent Tale of the Princess Kaguya. Once watched it never really leaves you.
July 12, 2021 @ 3:02 pm
Many of Miazaki’s movies have an explicitly environmental message. I quite like that this has only the one.
It’s helpful to have some familiarity with the animism of Japanese religion and culture for a full appreciation of the genius of this story.
