Well, it's been a while since I wrote something, but now I feel like I can actually write a full article about something slightly interesting.
隣のトトロ tonari no totoro is a great movie that all really should see. It's a rare type of movie that can be seen and appreciated by children and adults alike.
The main characters are Satsuki and Mei. One day after moving to a new house, they begin to see strange things. Eventually they meet with a giant mystical creature which they name Totoro.
A very innocent and enjoyable yet heartmoving tale that most Japanese people have seen at least once. If you haven't seen it yet, I would very much recommend it.
But, if you have seen it, there alies in it yet a whole other interpretation to the story... I have to warn you: if you read on, your idea about this movie being a happy childrens movie will change dreadfully.
In fact, you may lose hope in all childrens movies for suspicion that they are all actually morbid stories of death and murder.
