Three of my favorite things

A doodle I did of my husband last night. This is the view we usually have of him. 🙂

Tsuji Ayano An incredible Japanese singer who plays the ukelele and whom I am currently addicted to listening to.

Studio Ghibli Our favorite anime studio. Home of Miyazaki, a brilliant anime director. If you want to try out anime but have no idea where to start Studio Ghibli productions are the best starting point.

My Neighbor Totoro
Whisper of the Heart (my knew favorite)
Porco Rosso
Spirited Away
The Cat Returns
Howl’s Moving Castle (the book is MUCH better though the movie is wonderful.)
Castle in the Sky

I should note that these are the ones we have seen. There are others we have not seen. My husband and I watch each first then decide if it is suitable for our children–you might say these are comparable to older Disney animations, and in fact, Disney now helps produce them here. Some of these have scary bits but I would say all are suited to 7 and up.  Keep in mind–we don’t have cable tv.  Our kids don’t experience American tv very often and my husband and I prefer it that way.
