Princess Mononoke is my number one favorite, Along with my Neighbor Totoro which was my first exposure to Japanese Animation as a kid, As for Tales from Earth Sea.....It was very very BAD

Yeah, i understand why whisper of the heart is so overlooked as it's pretty much the opposite of what you'd expect from a feature Ghibli movie. I still love it tho...but as you said that ending is just a little too abrupt for me to go back to it again and again. The Cat Returns was a decent enough spin off from it. I think if both films were combined in some sort of way it would have had the makings for another standout...or maybe i'm just reachin...eh either way..decent flicks

Favorite Ghibli Film: Kiki's Delivery Service (Very first Ghibli film I've seen and been my favorite ever since)

Most Underrated Film: My Neighbors the Yamadas (A fun family comedy that deserves more love from Ghibli fans.)
