Hayao Miyazaki, famous animator, director, producer, screenwriter, author, manga artist, anime dad, and co-founder of Studio Ghibli has turned 80 years old today. We’d like to extend our warmest wishes for a prosperous and healthy future.
If you’re on this site, you probably know who Studio Ghibli is and what their most famous works are. Did you know you can grab their works on Steelbook at Righstuf? Im a huge fan of Steelbook releases and it sits nicely on my shelf so I have to recommend it.

What’s Your Favorite?
My personal favorite is Spirited Away. Being pushed to suddenly “grow up” and take responsibility, hunker down, and work really hard is something that I think resonates with a lot of people when times get tough. The english cast performed well and the soundtrack was exceptional.
I think each movie is special so favorites vary from person to person. Some prefer the works that focus on the individual and others prefer works with larger themes on war, environment awareness, growing up, etc.
