    I always found that westerners, me being one, finding that bath scene weird was odd. Firstly cuz its like a thing over here to take pics of your kids in the bath as babies cuz it’s cute, some allow their todds and kids at young ages run aroubd naked and or barely dressed or take the classic professional baby photos and their children are naked for pure babies are pure thing. So as a child when I saw the bathing scene I felt no weirdness just familiarity of this is papa and he is with us to bath to save water in the country side.

    Have any of you guys seen the Ghibli film My Neighbours The Yamadas? It’s such an underrated film and while it’s a more humourous film,it is really stylised and was one of my favourite films as a child.

    I already own Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away on blu-ray so I think my next Studio Ghibli movie I will buy on blu-ray is My Neighbor Totoro. My local Walmart has several Studio Ghibli movies so may grab this movie and another Studio Ghibli movie but not sure which I should get as my fourth Studio Ghibli movie. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind cover art on the blu-ray has me interested in it but I have been hearing good things about Howl’s Moving Castle so one of those two will be my next buy at same time I get My Neighbor Totoro.

    I liked the music for the second half of the video. It was weirdly suited

    I’m getting pretty sick of video essays now. Don’t turn pretentious, Harry. If I wanted a Nerdwriter video, I’d watch Nerdwriter.

    This video was awesome, by the way. I’m just on the rant. You know how it is.

    "Haiyo Maiyazarky" lol. Bless u for the disclaimer tho.
    Since I watched most Ghibli films as a kid I never really saw it through an analytical lens, so it’s really great to be able to go much deeper into the symbolism behind it now that I’m an adult and can kinda understand it more.
    Also, Japanese only has 5 vowels that are always pronounced the same way, making it super easy to pronounce! A (ah) I (ee) U (oo) E (eh) O (oh), for future reference!

    Great video. Really enjoyed the analysis. My two suggestions: 1. Slow down. Miyazaki movies are calm and thoughtful. The analysis should be presented in a relaxed, easy pace. 2. Putting the weird, scary Totoro interpretation illustration at the end makes it harder for me to share your analysis with my son so that we can discuss. The illustration doesn’t add to the analysis and kids won’t know what to make of this scary image.

    I think it’s occurred to me now that this movie might be Miyazaki’s take on Mary Poppins.

    So happy you did an analysis on this. Your videos are always so fascinating! It would be great to see you do more videos on Studio Ghibli, like Castle In The Sky and Spirited Away. Can’t wait to see your on Kiki‘s Delivery Service. Thanks for all you do!

    The bath scene was a problem? I know in the west we usually only bath with our parent of our gender, but when a mothers not there why not with their dad? 🙂 I found that scene sweet.

    While your pronunciation of Japanese names and words bothers me, I understand that they are difficult to learn. Other than that, excellent video. I appreciate your attention to detail when researching it. Please review Grave Of The Fireflies when you are able. 🙂

    The whole bathroom scene to me was uncomfortable because the older girl was a preteen and I thought she was too old to be bathing with her dad and sister

    Great video like all way’s, but there are so many videos already on this topic, that I thought you where going to take it in another direction.

    Somebody please tell me why this is the worst movie by the Studio — because I agree. I just can’t be as articulate as many youtubers here.

    Well, well, well, Harry’s Moving Castle finally does something Ghibli! Any chance you’ll do Howl’s Moving Castle next?

    Don’t understand the hype for this movie. I watched it when I was 20 and it’s a straight up kids movie. Was expecting some mature themes but I guess everyone is looking through nostalgia goggles.
