    Fun podcast, my wife is a big Kiki’s fan but it wouldn’t appear on my list.

    The only real disagreement I had with everyone is about Naussicaa: the main character is too much of a paragon to hold my interest, a bit like the notional lead of Mononoke.

    Also keep plugging Whisper of the Heart – I loved it instantly after first watching it at forty.
