Anime never been seen before.

This is going to be the strangers and the most weirdest thing I'm about to say but I wish Totoro was real so I can sleep one it's fury tummy, it just looks so comfortable.

The story is about two young girls who find that their new country home is in a mystical forest inhabited by a menagerie of mystical creatures called Totoros. They befriend O Totoro, the biggest and eldest Totoro, who is also the king of the forest. As their girls' mother lies sick in the hospital, O Totoro brings the sisters on a magical adventure but also helps them to understand the realities of life.

My Neighbor Totoro (or Tonari no Totoro ) is a anime film with: No scary monsters, no villains, no evil adults and not like the other three act structure, and that could surprise a lot of people who are expecting...

My Neighbor Totoro (Tonari no Totoro)

Finally got the chance to view this with my 1 year old who isn't that interested because of the subtitles but enamored with the beauty of its contents.

This is one of the most loveable and provocative anime's this reviewer has seen.

Marvelous and heartwarming!

What more can be said about MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO? Get this movie. Immediately. Not only one of the best animated features, from Japan or otherwise, this is a thoroughly winning original creation from Hayao Miyazaki about two sisters who discover a gentle forest giant in their backyard. Gorgeously animated and imaginative with an emotionally charged subplot involving the girls' frail mother, MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO isn't just a children's story. With a little bit of luck, grown-ups are sure to enjoy it too. Originally dubbed into English in 1993 by Carl Macek's Streamline Pictures, this movie was recently given a brand new dub. I understand that some folks have found the new dub a little disorienting, but personally, I think it's great to have another version of this classic film... and as someon...
