"Seven hundred years is a long time to be without a king, isn't it?"

At the recommendation of francitabozita's kids, I've been previewing some Miyazaki imdb ] movies to see if they're suitable for the_child, who's been asking to watch anime. Today I watched Princess Mononoke imdb ], My Neighbor Totoro imdb ], and Castle in the Sky imdb ].

I'm thoroughly charmed, and have enjoyed the movies. I think Princess Mononoke might be a bit rough for her intro to anime, but the other two work well. There's also an encouraging lack of groinal tentacles or free range mammaries, though I'm told this one advantage of watching Miyazaki.

Anime, a simplified viewer's guide:

Princess Mononoke: Think twice before you decapitate a god. (Admittedly an important safety tip.)
My Neighbor Totoro: Large furry creatures with huge teeth are your friends. (Somewhat countersurvival, that.)
Castle in the Sky: Always listen to your mother, especially if she's a pirate. (And who doesn't?)

Anime recommendations?
