Fun! Fun! Fun! 「となりのトトロ」 (Tonari no Totoro/My Neighbor Totoro, 1988) is just a riot.

…tomorrow!

GKids only just tweeted an announcement that the IFC Center in New York – where the special Studio Ghibli retrospective that has been travelling North America since last year first began – will be screening a whole lot of the films of the famous Japanese animation studio between November 16th and December 20th, 2012. It may the final stop of the Miyazaki & Co. tour, but I don’t know for sure. What is certain, however, is that New Yorkers are in for quite a treat – yet again.
