My Neighour Totoro is a charming tale about Saksuki and her little sister Mei who move to a new home in the country to be near their ailing mother. Far from the bustle of the city, they discover a mysterious place of spirits and magic, and the friendship of the big fluffy Totoro woodland creatures.
If you ask a fan why 1988 was a significant year for anime most would say that's when Akira came out, but a few would smile and say that it's the year Totoro was released. The film proved to be a huge success and created a demand from the public for Totoro merchandise, even to this day Totoro goodies, especially plush toys are popular items. Totoro was so iconic that it became Studio Ghibli's mascot and logo, appearing at the beginning of every Ghibli film since.
No, this is not an error, we really did give this movie ten out of ten.
Satsuki's and Mei's House was a major attraction at the World Expo 2005 In Aichi, Japan.
