The film Princess Mononoke, which depicts a world in a conflict between woodland deities and industrialization brought about by mankind, was initially presented in theaters 25 years ago. Our two protagonists are unfortunate to be caught in the middle of Ashitaka’s search for a remedy for a curse placed upon him and San, a human girl nurtured by the wolf gods of the forest who seems more like an animal than a human.

It’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever see a sequel to Princess Mononoke’s crazy adventures from Ghibli, but the fact that they keep popping up in novel ways decades after their original debuts show how timeless the studio’s stories are.

My Neighbor Totoro is the perfect anime for young children

Most people agree that My Neighbor Totoro is the finest movie to introduce youngsters to anime and get them interested in the genre. Consider Ponyo or Kiki’s Delivery Service as two more films that one would choose to show their children initially. But in terms of how much fans adore the plot and straightforwardness of this timeless anime film about healing, My Neighbor Totoro continues to stand out among its contemporaries.

But what draws children to My Neighbor Totoro and why is it such a cherished movie? The narrative progresses naturally, picking up speed as it goes along. The Tatsuo family’s relocation to a new home serves as the characters’ introduction to the audience. Satsuki and Mei Kusakabe, together with their father Tatsuo, are relocating in the hopes that the children’s mother will be in better condition when she is discharged from the hospital.

Many children will be able to relate to the idea of adjusting to a new life after having to relocate thanks to the fanciful and beautiful to look at My Neighbor Totoro with magnificent landscape and lighting. From beginning to end, this movie gives you the feeling that everything will be alright.

Early exposure to this movie can help children develop an appreciation for anime that many fans who grew up with it already have. Children occasionally aren’t even aware they are watching anime till they are older and conduct some research. It will be easier to show them other Studio Ghibli films because they already know they enjoy one if they follow the format of this movie, which will help them get into the habit of watching more media like it.
