Not the best anime movie of all time. But it is great one of Miyazaki's better films.

Personnaly I prefer Castle in the Sky and Princess Mononoke. That said it is a great film. the animation is absolutly beautiful (as to be expected from Studio Ghibli) and the score was great as well. I'm sure it would of done much better if it had a more genral release ( I don't think they have even shown it in any major cinemas in England)
Bring on the next film Miyazki.

I like the way that Miyazaki stated that he wanted the character of Chihiro(the film's heroine) to be a fairly plain looking average girl, and that he wanted her to act her age, not be all heroic, but be similar to a little girl.  I also loved Joe Hisahi's soundtrack, enough to pick it up at an anime dealer close to my school.

In fact I like to play it when I write my fan fics.  smile

I was stuned by this movie. It was byond my imagination. Miyazaki is the king of animation. However I did Like Laputa: Castle in the Sky a bit better. But that's just due to my personal taste. I like that deco-pulp air pirate stuff.
And I was shocked watching Spirited Away that the sounds of the parents car was actualy the exact model Audi they had in the movie. (you can tell from that open resonant sound Audi/VW intake manifolds have.) That's an attention to detail that I truely respect.

Best film of 2002.  No question, no debate.

What ho!

DEBATE: LOTR: The Two Towers released in 2002. I'm not saying Spirited Away isn't a gorgeoues, fantastic, surprisingly well-dubbed movie (I too have the soundtrack); I just like Two Towers more.

So I guess there is question and debate. Suck on that, boingo!  wink

Best anime ever? There are maaany many animes which i liked much more. IMO mononoke hime and spirited away are just the asian equivalents to disney films. Or is there a deeper meaning behind this film than a crooked alice in wonderland story with nice animations that I just didn't get?

What do you expect, Arkard? Many animes tell stories of Japanese folklore. Anime has loads of allusions to its Japanese history.

I didn't say that I completely disliked the film. But from the 'best anime ever' or 'best film 2002' as some call it, I expect a bit more than that. And there are enough animes which are better. Talking about deeper meanings (if you want that), take mononoke hime for example, that one at least combined mythologies with the ecological anxieties of the Japanese people at that time. I have to admit, that I never found someting in 'silly' animes. Me likes something like Jin Roh, Angel Sanctuary or - something more simple - blood the last vampire, because for me they have a more interesting story/characters, are more pretentious or are plainly more entertaining.
I guess it's all a matter of taste.

I said "No question, no debate."  So obviiously you are just a figment of my imagination.  As such, I choose to ignore you.

I liked TTT, but not as much as FOTR.  Probably has something to do with the fact that it's not as heavy with the Christopher Lee.  (I just finished reading ROTK, and realized that in the movie I'll have to watch
