Like Martin, I'm going to assume you meant to exclude Ghibli as a whole since you didn't include any Takahata and I think I remember you being a fan of some of them. That, and you have Miyazaki's pre-Ghibli Lupin on there.

You're right. That's what I meant. Changed the heading.

Ruben Brandt, Collector is now in my Watchlist.

Bambi meets Godzilla is a classic. It is a shame that YouTube provide you an image that gives the game away.
