About this deal

The girls discover that a planned visit by their mother has been postponed because of a setback in her treatment.

a b "When Studio Ghibli is mentioned, usually the name of its co-founder and chief director Hayao Miyazaki springs to mind. While their father is working, the girls explore their sprawling old house and the forest and fields that surround it. Soon, Satsuki and Mei discover Totoro, a magical forest spirit who takes them on fantastic adventures through the trees and the clouds–and teaches them a lesson about trusting one another.

The books was a little different to the movie, there were a few scenes that didn’t seem to be put into the novel, but it still worked well. In 1989, US-based company Streamline Pictures produced an exclusive English language dub of My Neighbor Totoro for use as an in-flight movie on Japan Airlines flights. Another animated film that has left an indelible mark amongst spectators is My Neighbor Totoro, another fantasy coming-of-age film.

The film's central character Totoro was used as a mascot by the Japanese campaign "Totoro Hometown Fund Campaign", which aimed to preserve areas of satoyama in Saitama Prefecture. Miyazaki's production paralleled his colleague Isao Takahata's production of Grave of the Fireflies. Mei and the Kittenbus ( めいとこねこバス, Mei to Konekobasu) is a thirteen-minute sequel to My Neighbor Totoro that was written and directed by Miyazaki. Soon, in the woods behind their spooky old house, Satsuki and Mei discover a forest spirit named Totoro.

Following the request of the paper's authors, the species was named for the character because he "uses a many-legged animal as a vehicle, which according to the collectors resembles a velvet worm".

The rights to this dub expired in 2004, so Walt Disney Home Entertainment re-released the film on March 7, 2006 with a new dub cast. Buena Vista Home Entertainment Japan (now Walt Disney Japan) reissued the VHS on June 27, 1997, as part of their series Ghibli ga Ippai. The beloved animation classic by legendary Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki, My Neighbor Totoro, is now a novel. However, it felt like the magic was toned down a bit but it suited the story because it made the relationship of sisters Satsuki and Mei the true highlight of the narrative. Satsuki dan Mei bersemangat sekali, tapi sayang, menjelang hari yg dinantikan, malah ada telegram dari RS untuk sang ayah.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I'm a big fan of Studio Ghibli movies and have great respect for the amazing artist that is Hayao Miyazaki. It baffles me that no matter what, the stories Hayao Miyazaki makes always enable you to emerge yourself in a new world.

The sequel focuses on the character Mei Kusakabe from the original film and her one-night adventures with Kittenbus, the offspring of Catbus, and other cat-oriented vehicles.

However, I have gleaned that Totoro, yes, that puffy cuddly cute monster, is a convergence of both these adult stories and children’s playful imagination.
