Another great review Steve!  I liked the brief nod to religion in Porco Rosso too - which also added a nice comedic element.

So did you make that little dust sprite?

Nope, just found the pic on the net.  Thought he was cute.

Hooray, steve! I'm happy to finally hear your thoughts on the last of the Miyazaki. Great Totoro review, and yes, the soot spirits please me greatly. ;D

I still haven't seen Castle of Cagalatoga or Whisper of the Heart, but otherwise the only difference in my ranking would be to swap the last two, Kiki and Porco Rosso. It's cool to see such agreement!

Probably whichever one I watched last. ;) Right now I'm leaning Mononoke.
