This has to be one of the greatest achievements ever in animation. It's a perfect Anime film.

My favorite movie of all time. I can't believe it only wins 55% of the time.

I absolutely adore this film. The characters, story, the sense of adventure & fun and especially the animation and music are all fantastic in my opinion and create a wonderful experience of pure thrills. It's almost in my top ten favourite films of all time! My favourite Studio Ghibli film out of the ones I've seen so far.

This is a film that is absolutely non-stop entertainment at it's finest and also has a great plot, great characters and a brilliant sense of intrigue, mystery and wonder. Not to mention its perfect soundtrack and visuals.( A trademark for Ghibli films.) I'd be lying if I said this wasn't a perfect animated film and phenomenal film, compared to some of the greatest live-action movies ever made. Incomparable to any other film, it leaves you paralysed by its beauty.

I loved how imaginative it was, and even though it’s the typical thing to do I was totally rooting for our two heroes.
